Player Comments:

  • "Another good match with Steve. Being members of the same club we’ve played a few times before. Our last match was a long three setter but I was able to get the upper hand for this match with some consistent serving. Quite a few games went to deuce but I was able to edge a lot of them. Thanks for the match Steve!"  -- Simon
Reveal CommentLuke Walker bt Simon Pound (Jun 18) 7-5, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "My first time at Beverley, conditions were not perfect on the day as the wind decided to pick up. The first set was a close affair with Simon hitting some great serves and returns however I just managed to nick the break and hold. The second set was very similar to the first in which I was constantly under pressure to hold serve but just managed to be that little bit more consistent. Credit to Simon for a good match. "  -- Luke

Reveal CommentCraig Taylor bt Mark Dryden (Jun 23) 4-6, 6-3, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "We have played each other quite a few times now ( Too often, Mark might say!), and the matches are always really close and competitive. For once, the conditions were perfect - a sunny 22 degrees with no wind or rain to use as an excuse. A very cagey first set which probably could have gone either way, but Mark showed greater consistency and determination to take it 6-4 after around an hour's play. That consistency gradually swung my way for the other two sets as I began to claw my way ahead and actually hit one or two winners. As ever, a really enjoyable match played in good spirit. Thanks Mark."  -- Craig

  • "A lovely warm evening for tennis at Souter Park. A lot closer than the scoreline suggests with many games going to deuce. Thanks for the game Greame and good luck with your remaining matches! "  -- Mark
Reveal CommentDaniel Smith bt Graeme Dickson (Jun 18) 7-6 (8-6), 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Great game in lovely weather. I served for the first set at 5-4 but Graeme broke me back and had some set points at 5-6 but it ended up going to a long tiebreak I took 8-6. I ended up 5-1 up second set but again Graeme broke me back when serving and held to make it 5-3, I fought off a couple more break points to eventually serve it out 6-3. Cheers for a good game :) "  -- Daniel
