Player Comments:

  • "It was good match in good weather for it. We had some good rallies and points, but I just had a bit more experience of playing in the league so was more consistent. I think I was lucky Phil was back playing after a long break. It should've been closer than the score suggests as most games went to Deuce in the first set."  -- Antony
Reveal CommentMatthew Davis bt Antony Lafuente (Apr 11) 6-3, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Not my brightest idea to play a game before this one but thought I would give it a go! It’s a while since I had played at West Haddon too and the courts there were quite bouncy so took me a while to get used to them again. Both sets were competitive with Antony chasing down my forehands and always seeming to get one more shot back! I needed my reserve tank of energy and my serve to carry me over the line as I didn’t fancy a 3rd set. In both sets I needed to come back from deficits of 1-3 and 1-4 so all credit to Antony as he had some difficult results in the group recently but was gaining confidence as the matches went on and that showed today! "  -- Matthew

Player Comments:

  • "A good hit with Phil in what can only be described from my point of view as a bit of an ice rink! Unable to keep my footing it became a bit of a slug fest and Phil, who had been out the game for some time, made some good shots and kept me chasing around the court! All in all a good game. Best of luck for the rest of your matches Phil!"  -- Matthew
Reveal CommentMatthew Davis bt Wayne Savage (Apr 8) 5-7, 6-3, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Really good to be back on the courts after the lockdown and as expected it was a bit of a rough ride with both of us very rusty. First set I got off to a horrendous start and was 0-4 down before I managed to find a bit of rhythm and got myself back to a decent score though Wayne played consistently better to take the opener 7-5. I played much better in the 2nd set and the rallies became somewhat more consistent from both. Just a single break was enough to take the second set and head into a decider. Due to the light we had to abandon and come back a few days later to play the 3rd set. In that set there was some good rallies by both players and the difference for me was my serve had really picked up which helped me secure the decider 6-3! "  -- Matthew

  • "A really enjoyable match in a weird series of sunny/cloudy hot/cold weather. But some good rallies and nice friendly match. My experience of playing in the league told in the end. But some good points among the games."  -- Antony

Player Comments:

  • "David has improved a lot since I last played him a year or so ago. In the second set he pushed three games to deuce and had several advantages in his favour, so the score line is a little harsh. I don't think it will be too long before he starts to rack-up some points up if he keeps playing. Thanks for the game, David. "  -- Joseph
Reveal CommentRehaan Adat bt Andy McGonigle (Apr 15) 6-2, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Good game with Andy, first set was very close and the match seemed to turn on one game early on in the 1st set which had about 7 deuces. For someone who has only just recently picked up tennis, Andy was very good."  -- Rehaan
