  • "Despite the rain managed to get our match played this afternoon. Tight first set, taking turns to edge ahead by a game. Eventually I held out to wine two games in a row and take the first set. Both us played some great tennis and equally we both hit some shockers but all round good competitive match. Nice to meet you man and hope to play again!"  -- Rory

Player Comments:

  • "Nice evening for a well spirited match which finished under the lights in Keyworth! First set ebbed and flowed with many breaks being traded throughout. I was fortunate enough to take it on the tiebreak in the end by trying to minimise mistakes. Ian came out in the 2nd playing solid and hitting his spots on serve and deservedly took the set. The final set was tight up until 3-3 and I just about found enough to take the last 2 games. It's been a while since I had that many net cords in one match, I'm sure karma will find me eventually! Great game, hope to play again soon!"  -- Ryan

Player Comments:

  • "Good match played over 2 days because of rain. Nearly got to the end of the first set on the first day and then resuming the end of set 1 a week later was a bit tough. I closed out the set and then Ryan had a great response in set 2 breaking me early and hitting some great winners at the net. I then held a couple of long service games to hang in and managed to break back. Plenty of winners from both of us and this could’ve easily been a 3 set match - especially if we finished it on the first day. Good luck for the rest Ryan and I look forward to playing again!"  -- Costa

Player Comments:

  • "Managed to squeeze this one in last minute today. Lovely weather and the sun making things a bit tricky on one end. Very close first set which could’ve gone either way. I think the tie break going my way set the tone for the second set, although there were more breaks of serve than holds I managed to stay in front. I think me and James both agree that the highlight of the match was a tweener hit by myself to win the point. A good lob from James had me tracking back with limited options and in the end I decided to send the tweener which had the effect of affecting James’ concentration for his next shot. Good match man and well played!!"  -- Rory

Player Comments:

  • "Great match with Jacob. His all-round game was excellent, and he was able to produce some impressive passing shots. Very close first set that could have gone either way with more breaks than holds. I managed to hold serve after breaking at 4-4 helped by a couple of double faults from him to finish the set off. Started the second set with 2 breaks of serve benefiting from a slight dip in his performance. By the time he found his game again I was already serving for the match. He managed to get to deuce after being 3 match points down producing what certainly was the point of the match with a great backhand down the line passing shot. I was glad to see the match out as he was gaining momentum with every point. Thanks for the game, man."  -- Omar

Tristan outplayed me first set and held his nerve well after dropping 5-4 and won it with some incredible approach shots the highlight being a Federer type backhand down the line. Second set was tight I just managed to find some good lobs and stay consistent in order to just about out hussle tristan. Final set was probably the toughest saved my first service game after being 15-40 down and after a few breaks held an integral game at 4-3 from 15-40 with some huge serving and good hitting. I had to play more agressively in order to try and move tristan as he don’t miss . You are a great player, look forward to next time!" -- Kamali

First set Matt served strong and although I broke early at 5-4 30-0 down he played some great tennis and forced 5-5 and I just managed to nick last two games. Second set I had to play more aggressively and managed to find some nice winners as did Matt and after breaking him early he broke me back after 7 deuces showing his mental strength, plus it almost broke mine! At the end we were both reaching our limit and I just managed to find a little bit more.

Player Comments:

  • "Tight match down at Vernon Park. Lovely early morning weather on Saturday morning and great match up as usual with Howard. First set went well for me, Howard came back really well in the second with some determined defence and strong winners. 8 game winning run comes to an end for Howard, so that shows how tough he is to beat. All the best for the rest of the matches!"  -- Tim
