Player Comments:

  • "Very long match with a week long break between the first two and the final set. Started off strong and ran away with the first set, but ended up being pretty much even by the end. Lots and lots of long rallies where we'd lose the advantage but then manage to recover and get back into the rally safely, exhausting but fun!"  -- Mike
