Player Comments:

  • "It marks almost a year since I played Pralin one the best technical players I played especially in this leagues amongst myself! The weather was identical as last time with some strong wind at times. First set I almost found myself up 5-2 but Pralin came back to win it by a whisker. Some unusual unforced errors gave me the lead. Second set identically corresponded the first set with going 3 0 up but he made it 2-1 then I went 5 1 up and he made a comeback to 5-3 before I sealed it. Some good serves on both sides and an ace for me . Good forehand and net play overall. Sadly we couldn’t finish it as Pralin had go hope to finish it. "  -- Belal
