Reveal CommentCraig Taylor bt Graeme Dickson (Mar 13) 6-4, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Pretty good weather conditions for once and a really enjoyable and competitive match. The first set was long and incredibly tight, with most games going to deuce. It really could have gone either way. Many excellent long rallies featuring the full range of shots and lots and lots of running from both players. The first set lasted around 55 minutes. The second set was just as competitive, but after the exertions of the first it was thankfully shorter. The scoreline certainly does not reflect how close the match was. A very enjoyable afternoon of tennis. Thanks a lot."  -- Craig

Reveal CommentGraeme Dickson bt Joe Zadeh (Feb 27) 6-2, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Great morning for tennis, sunny and no wind. I was fortunate that in my 4th game in the week I'd found a very consistent service, and was able to hold nearly all of my service games. We had some really good games with strong rallies. Great to meet Joe, and it'll be good to get another game in soon."  -- Graeme
Reveal CommentCraig Taylor bt COLIN THOMSON (Feb 27) 6-1, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "At last, a glorious, sunny afternoon. Beautiful conditions for tennis. This was a really good match with lots of deuce games and many long rallies. As so often the case in the tennis league, the scoreline doesn't really reflect the closeness of the match. Played in great spirit, a very enjoyable competition."  -- Craig

Reveal CommentGraeme Dickson bt Jeremy Kwan (Feb 25) 7-6 (7-5), 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Great to meet Jeremy, and play on the clay courts at Northumberland. Jeremy broke first at 5-5, but I was fortunate to break straight back to force a tie-break, which ended up being as close as the set. The second set was close again, with some longer rallies and was definitely a challenge. Look forward to the next match!"  -- Graeme

Reveal CommentCraig Taylor bt Joe Zadeh (Feb 23) 6-1, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Oh the wind .... Yet another gusty, windy day which made quality tennis difficult, but we both persevered and enjoyed the match. Most games went to 40-40, so things could have gone either way. As it was, Joe's performance improved as the match went on and Craig began to fade but just clung on to claim the victory. Overall, a lot of fun and a good blast of fresh air on a February afternoon. Cheers."  -- Craig

Reveal CommentCraig Taylor bt Jeremy Kwan (Feb 12) 6-2, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Terrible weather conditions made for an interesting and challenging contest with a tempestuous wind swirling around the court usually taking the ball with it. Both players struggled with serve and the difficulties posed by unpredictable flight and bounce. Nevertheless, we persevered and probably felt better for it, but the quality of the tennis was far from spectacular. In the end, the result was largely determined by the player who made the least unforced errors and greater success in keeping the ball in play."  -- Craig

Very tight second set too, breaks exchanged in the first two games then 6 straight holds before I got the deciding break and served it out 6-4. Great game in great spirits, cheers. "  -- Daniel
