Player Comments:

  • "A physically and mentally exhausting match that took over 2.5 hours, 3 or 4 overheads in a row would come back and one point felt like it went on for several minutes. At 2:2 in the second set Yading served 3 aces, followed by an easy run to 5:2, I thought it was all over. Some aggressive play allowed me to creep back, but I had to fight for every point. In the 3rd set he started to tire out and the number of short & high balls increased allowing me to close out with my net game, still no easy feat, every volley came back several times. Thank you for a great game."  -- Alex
