Player Comments:

  • "Sharing the same tennis club with Pierce it always been a great experience playing between each other. I think the wind took off a little bit from the quality of the game, but apart from that Pierce was playing better in the first set and half. He was with a set up and 3/0 in the second, when I had to settle down and start to regroup and bring back the focus to win the second set in the last possible service game when Pierce was serving with 4/5 to stay in the set. In the decider I lower the amount of double faults, which was bothering me throughout the match and a little doubt in Pierce game was crucial for the final score. Wish him luck with the rest, as this is his first appearance in the league :) "  -- Koliochanev@yahoo.com

  • "Good match with Lee this morning, started with an ace and then lost my opening service game. Traded breaks until I broke for 4-2 and served to make it 5-2. Started the second set 0-40 down and came back to race into a 4-0 lead. The friendly set ended 7-5 to me, was a really good match and played in good spirit. Good Luck with the rest of your matches Lee!"  -- Pierce

Player Comments:

  • "Nice game with Lee. Plenty of fun rallies during the match too. First set was closer than the score line suggested, several games of deuces all seemed to go my way! 2nd set was much tighter and Lee started the better breaking early and going up 3-1. A tight game followed where I managed to get the break back. I then played a couple of solid games putting me 5-3 up. Next game was one one of my best which consisted of 3 forehand winners and a backhand cross court winner too! Really enjoyable game overall, thanks Lee! "  -- Matthew

Player Comments:

  • "Great game between two of us. This time Ionut throw the chair against me in the first set. I had to work hard on my service games, but he managed to broke once and that was enough to finish the first set with 6-3. The second set everyone was steady up until 4-4, where I was serving and Ionut put me under pressure with 30/30 on second serve, but unforced error on his forehand gave me a chance to hold my service game. Serving to stay in the set Ionut had wasted a few chances and I've managed to break. In the decider I had an early brake and crucial this time was my service game at 2/0,where after 7/8 deuces I clinch 3/0 lead and then stayed focused until the end of the set. Today both of us was looking for a clean winners. Good luck mate"  -- Koliochanev@yahoo.com

  • "Good competitive match with John. First set was closer than the score line suggested and turning point was when I was receiving at 3-2 up and a long game followed with chances for John to hold serve came and went as I hung in there to secure the break for 4-2. I hung on to my next service game before breaking again to take the set 6-2. 2nd set had a similar story to it with me up 3-2 on serve and again another long game came and went with chances for both but again I managed to break before holding serve and then breaking again to take the set and match. Overall some really good and competitive rallies with plenty of drop shots and lobs! Good luck with the rest of your games John! "  -- Matthew

  • "Another match between old mates. In the first I was more focused and aggressive and with early lead I've managed to close the set with 6/3. In the second the game was more level and Erlens managed to break my service game and had a chance to serve for the set at 5/3, but again I put myself together and close the match in straight sets with 7/5 in the decider. Erlens improved in positive way, so expecting to get tougher player to overcome. Good luck with the rest ;) "  -- Kolyo

In the first set I took an early lead and kept my service games until the end, but second set was different story. After he broke my serve, Stas was serving at 5-3, but somehow I've managed to turn around and complete in straight sets with 7-5. Looking for a friendly rematch! "  -- Kolyo
Reveal CommentMatthew Davis bt Erlens Ters (Jan 15) 6-2, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "First game of the group and a tough opener judging by our last match which finished all even. We both held our opening service games but I managed to break Erlens in his next one. I then played some solid tennis to go a double break up. I managed to serve well throughout and took the opening set 6-2. Into the 2nd and I maintained my momentum by again going a double break up to lead 4-1. Next 2 games became big games with lots of rallies & after saving a number of break points I finally succumbed to losing my serve at last and Erlens made it 4-2. Next game was a mammoth one lasting 20 mins and had countless deuces. I eventually broke on my 4th break point and carried that momentum into the next game and served it out on my first match point!"  -- Matthew
