Player Comments:

  • "Nice match Florin, you did great to come back from 4-0 down to lead 5-4 in the first. Shame about the scoring error at 5-5 or we might have been into a tie-break. Your rocket serve nearly had me backed up to the fence! Enjoy the round and see you next time."  -- Simon

Player Comments:

  • "A very enjoyable match as usual with Peter."  -- Mike
  • "Thanks for an enjoyable match once again Mike. The playing conditions were very good today despite the threat of rain and fortunately much cooler than the past few days of high temperatures. I went 5-2 down in both sets and tried to claw my way back but throughout the match I had no answer to your put away shot that punished anything of mine that landed mid-court or shorter. Well played and hope you enjoy your other matches" -- Peter
