Player Comments:

  • "This was the third time Greg and I have played and like the other two this game was very tight and very enjoyable and developed into something of a 2 hour epic - I managed to take the first set 6-2 but in the second set Greg made far fewer errors and raced to a 3-0 lead - I managed to claw it back to 3-3 with lots of tight points and deuces - thereafter it was really close with some great rallies and eventually we reached 6-6 and a tie break- again this was very close and Greg fought back from being several points down and we reached 6-6 in the tie break - somehow managed to win the next two points t take the match- a really enjoyable match played in excellent spirit - Good luck with your remaining matches Greg and lets play again soon!"  -- Peter
