Although Ivan's racket fractured during the 2nd set (Ivan had a 2nd racket with him), he continued to play at the same level. Fortunately for me, I saved 'match point' in this 2nd set, and then went onto win the tiebreaker. Light stopped play at this point, and we intend to resume for final set this Thursday, 7th March. We are so looking forward to it; I cannot express what an enjoyable game of tennis this is. So many deuces, so many long rallies - unbelievable game !"  -- Sandra
  • "This match was simply terrific !!! It could have gone either way, however, Ivan had the edge and deservedly won the third set. We were playing some 90 minutes to complete this final set - so many deuces ! As said, a great match, and can't wait to play Ivan again ."  -- Sandra

  • "This was a tight game, much more tighter than what the score depicts ! It was 4-4, 30/30 in the first set, and I was fortunate, just enough, to win that game and the next, to win the first set. Plenty of deuces, and even more rallies. Looking forward to another match with Rob during the next few months."  -- Sandra

  • "Very enjoyable game this afternoon - thankfully the BBC weather forecast was wrong! Much closer than the shoreline suggests … Guthrie moves really well around the court and made me work hard for lots of games and we had a good number of deuces. Looking forward to some rematches - Guthrie’s not been playing for very long and I think will improve quickly so keep playing! "  -- Rob

Chloe has a very hard swing, and if she had had the opportunity to play more tennis recently, then I am sure the score would be very different !. Looking forward to playing Chloe again in the near future x"  -- Sandra

Reveal CommentWilliam Smith bt Antony Arthur (Feb 2) 6-0, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "When I arrived William was already warming up and banging down beautiful clean (effortless) serves so my expectations of the outcome were suitably kept in check. I was half hoping he might be a new tennis coach and my opponent was yet to arrive. Nope. The rest of his shots were equally impressive. It was actually a pleasure to play William because he hits the ball so well that it meant some of my shots were half decent (not enough to win a game but hey). It was thoroughly decent of him to hang around and hit with me for a while after. Thank you. "  -- Antony
