Reveal CommentDarren Rennicks bt Howard Westgate (Dec 4) 6-4, 7-6 (7-4)

Player Comments:

  • "Very wet court after a 20 minute squidgy session pushing off all the excess water it was just about playable. Tough conditions wet underfoot with a strong cross court wind and to top it off a very low sun which was blinding on one side of the court, it was never going to be a classic today. Howard always a top competitor and we have had many battles in the past so nice to play him again with it being a while since we last played. Close all the way today but I was lucky enough to just edge it. Until next time my friend as always all the best."  -- Darren
Reveal CommentAlex Salmeron bt Ian Dickety (Dec 3) 6-3, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "This was a great match with a high standard of match-play. Ian is strong on both wings, has a fast serve and is quick around the court. I didn’t think I’d be getting much joy out of the match after finding myself 2 games down in the first set. But I dug in and started to find good length and angles. The second set was anybody’s guess, but I edged ahead at the end as Ian had to take more risks, being a set down. I can honestly say I wouldn’t have minded losing this match as players were hitting through the ball and going for winners, which made it a fun tie. It was a pleasure to meet you Ian, I look forward to another match up before long! "  -- Alex

Chris was so tenacious and was brilliant under pressure. I wish him well with his remaining matches. I have a 2-0 record in final set tiebreaks now. We got to 6-7 4-1 on Saturday 13th November but it then got dark and the lights never turned on until we gave up for the day.
