Player Comments:

  • "Without a doubt, one of the most bizarre up and down matches I've ever played! Score shows the sharp momentum shifts but not how close all three sets were inside each game (mostly deuces). It came down to who could keep their errors down in some lung buster rallies on the big points in each set. Well played Alan, a very strange but enthralling match to share with you. Rematch is definitely due in the future!"  -- Sam

Match Results:

Reveal CommentBen Parker-Wright bt Richard Powell (Oct 13) 6-3, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "A really enjoyable match, closer than the scoreline suggests, with some great long rallies and shot making. I took an early lead in the first set, but Richard came back strongly, saving 4 set points, and I was relieved to serve it out after being pegged back to deuce from 40-0 at 5-3. We had to change courts twice after the first set, as the one we had booked was really slippery, and this disrupted both our rhythms a bit at the start of the second set, leading to two or three slightly scrappy deuce games which could have gone either way. I then found a bit of form to close out the match. Thanks for the game Richard, good to meet you and hope we can play again sometime soon."  -- Ben
Reveal CommentAdam Vaughan bt Ose Ikhena (Oct 11) 6-4, 6-1

Player Comments:

Reveal CommentBen Parker-Wright bt Patrick Crotty (Oct 9) 6-4, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Enjoyable and really tough match, including the longest rally I've played for some time, must have been at least 40 shots, including multiple chased lobs and several drop shots. Lots of other really good points, Patrick was getting everything back so it was really difficult to finish points off, can't remember having to hit so many volleys! Thanks for the game Patrick, great to meet you and hope we can play again sometime soon."  -- Ben
Reveal CommentBen Parker-Wright bt Ose Ikhena (Oct 7) 6-2, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Great match under floodlights at eaton Park. Momentum shifts throughout with the scoreline moving apart then back close again multiple times. Final set we moved courts to keep going and I hit a run of form at 3-3 to take it. Thanks for the great match Barnaby and see you next time! "  -- Adam
Reveal CommentBarnaby Cook bt Ose Ikhena (Oct 3) 6-1, 6-4

Reveal CommentRichard Powell bt Barnaby Cook (Sep 29) 6-1, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Really enjoyable game of tennis. The score doesn't reflect the way it was played, it was end to end and one game went on for 20 minutes or so. Good for the fitness. Cheers Barnaby "  -- Richard
Reveal CommentPatrick Crotty bt Ose Ikhena (Sep 25) 6-1, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "A perfect day for tennis at Waterloo Park, slightly muggy with not a breath of wind, and zero lost balls for once! I sensed Ose was a little ring-rusty but nevertheless he delivered some great kick serves and we had plenty of fine rallies and close games which made the score flatter me somewhat. Thanks for an enjoyable game Ose and good luck for the remainder of the round."  -- Patrick

Reveal CommentBen Parker-Wright bt Barnaby Cook (Sep 13) 4-6, 6-4, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "What a match. The first game went to about six deuces, which set the tone for a two and a half hour epic, full of deuce games and long rallies. Seemed like both of us were getting everything back most of the time, really hard to hit winners! First set was very close until 4-4, then Barnaby played a great couple of games to take it. I got an early 4-1 lead in the 2nd set, but Barnaby came back and I just held on. Final set was much closer than the scoreline suggests - my first three service games went to several deuces each, but I managed to win them and found a few good shots to close the match out. Absolutely exhausted afterwards! Thanks for a fantastic game Barnaby, great to meet you and good luck with the rest of your matches."  -- Ben
Reveal CommentBarnaby Cook bt Patrick Crotty (Sep 11) 6-3, 3-6, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "Another nail-biting match which could have gone either way at the end. The final set had some real swings in momentum, I went up 4-1 and then lost 4 games in a row as Patrick went into in 'do-not-miss' mode scraping every ball out of the corners and forcing errors. A great match and thanks for playing - good luck with the rest of your matches. "  -- Barnaby
Reveal CommentBen Parker-Wright bt Adham Ashton-Butt (Sep 9) 6-0, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "A fun match that was a lot closer than the scoreline suggests. There were some great rallies, Adham played some excellent shots and lots of games went to deuce. A few points the other way and the score could have been very different. Thanks for an enjoyable game Adham, great to meet you and good luck with the rest of your matches."  -- Ben

Player Comments:

  • "Really good, competitive match. Adam started slowly and I went 5-1 up in the first set, but he came back strongly and I was fortunate to get over the line in the end. Second set was really high quality, and could have gone either way. Lots of great tennis from Adam and I felt like I was clinging on. Lots of deuce games on my serve, but I managed to hang on, got a single break of serve at 4-3, then somehow came back from 0-40 down to serve it out. Thanks for a great match Adam, and good luck for the rest of the round!"  -- Ben

Reveal CommentRoger Denton bt Angus Duthie (Sep 7) 6-1, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "An enjoyable match in sweltering conditions at Eaton Park. After a fairly quick first set, Angus threatened to get right back in it at the start of the second. However, after about eight deuces I managed to hold my serve and followed it with a break. It then stayed on serve to 5-2 as Angus started to fire down a few rockets. I then broke again to complete the win. Some good rallies and good shots from both players. Thanks for the match Angus and good luck with the rest of your matches."  -- Roger

Reveal CommentRichard Bryant bt Callum King (Sep 4) 3-6, 6-4, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "Callum won a close 1st set with his numerous excellent down the line winners and fast cross court shots. I became more consistent in the 2nd set, albeit needing a 4th set point to take the set, as Callum came back repeatedly. 3rd set was very close too with me being 3 1 up, but Callum coming back to lead 5 4 before the momentum swung back in my favour as I sneaked a 7 5 win. Very close and enjoyable match - thanks very much Callum. Richard"  -- Richard

He certainly gave me a good run for the money. There were long baseline rallies and plenty deuces as well as fabulous cross court shots. In the end he was let down by shots outside the box as sun was bothering him while I was saved by prescription sunglasses shoved in bag last minute before heading off to play.
