Collapse AllPavilion Singles - Round 26 | Thursday 1 June 2017 to Wednesday 26 July 2017 (Midpoint: Wednesday 28 June 2017)

The players in this round seemed inspired by the British Tennis grass court season as we saw a high turnout and lots of competitive matches on the courts at the Pavilion. Well done to the new groups champs and we hope to see you all next time.

Group Summary:

A number of close contests in a competitive group three including a nail biting three set thriller between Uche and Mark which eventually saw Uche prevail 7-6, 6-7, 7-5. Four wins for Uche and Francesco put them both in contention for the group crown. Crucially Uche played all of his matches and therefore although Francesco emerged victorious from the two's epic head to head, the set Uche won in this encounter sees him move into the lead and retain the group one title. Great to see the majority of the bonus points on the board too.

Final Rankings:

  1. Uche Onyema [W4, L1] 11 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Francesco Malatesta 9.1 [W4] 10 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP
  3. John Cotterill 7.2 [W2, L2] 7 includes 2 bonus points

Group Summary:

There was no easy match in group two with over a third of matches going the distance and many tight sets on the scoreboard. Alex fought off the strong competition to finish the round with five wins and bonus points under his belt to take the gold. Dominic managed to defeat the champ and takes home the bragging rights as the only player to do so. Tim and Ashley tied on points in the race for second, however Tim recorded a crucial win over Ashley in a marathon affair and this clinches him the silver.

Group Summary:

Round of applause to Andy who dominated all six of his matches to cruise into the number one spot with a clean sweep of wins. Benji was right on Andy's tail with a combination of five victories and good scheduling skills putting him level on points, but he didn't quite have enough to topple Andy in their head to head and has to settle for second this time. Top commitment from the group to get all but one match played.

Group Summary:

Martin and Othmane both got all of their matches played and bagged their bonus points, and this was a recipe for success. Martin takes top spot thanks to four solid victories and Othmane followed in second with three victories to his name.

I think this was also the first time for Ameer, although Catherine had played in the leagues previously. The match kicked-off promptly, and I was very impressed by the quality of tennis played by the opposition Ameer at times played some outstanding shots down the line, and some of Catherine's shots were unplayable. After trailing 0-2 in the first set me and David set our minds just to keep close to the opposition, which we managed, and somehow managed to sneak it at the death - which was the first time we took the lead. The second set starting very competitively. 19th hole at Maid. "  -- Tony
