Player Comments:

  • "Lovely game on Sunday morning. It took me some time to get used to the surface as I haven’t played at artificial grass for a while and as a result I was down 1-5 on first set. Then I won few games but Tony managed to close the set 6-4. A was more confident in second set and tried to reduce amount of unforced errors to tie the game 6-4. Apparently Tony was playing with little injury which didn’t allow him to show the best tennis in deciding set. Well played Tony and good luck in next league matches!"  -- Stanislav

Player Comments:

  • "First match in the league and another encounter between me and Arnoldas. Today I couldn't find my rhythm and after too many unforced errors I gave it in straight sets. Congrats Arnoldas, good luck with the rest "  -- Kolio

  • "Always tough against Janis, but a good match and I made him work for it. In the end Janis had the better consistency and variety and deserved the win."  -- Joseph
Reveal CommentJanis Trofimovs bt John Tiernan (Jun 5) 6-3, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Fun game to start the season. First set involved lots of breaks of serves, a few lucky net-cords for me before Janis pulled away at 3-3 to take the set with some strong serving. I broke to open the second set and went 2-0 up before some good volleys from Janis brought it back to 3-3 again. The games from here went to Deuce but Janis played better during the important points to take the next three games and win the match. Thanks for the game Janis!"  -- John
Reveal CommentAntony Parselle bt Joseph Morrissey (Jun 3) 7-5, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Not sure I deserved to win this one. Joseph was the better player. I couldn't get my shots together and maybe short of practice and fitness so had to resort to match play and soak up the harder shots and slow the game down with safer defensive play forcing Joseph into errors or missing the higher risk shots by making him play one more shot. I played better in the second set but still wasn't the better player on the day. Im glad I won as its a league match so it's more about match play. But didn't really deserve to. Lovely day though! "  -- Antony
