Also great fun playing on the grass courts. Thanks for hosting the game, and hopefully see you again soon in future rounds!"  -- Samuel

Player Comments:

  • "Very enjoyable match played against 2 very good friends and fellow Club members. Lovely day for tennis and some great rallies, followed by an after-match tea that we all made together. The special time we shared together on and off court was way more important than the result today. Thank you guys and hopefully we’ll meet again in the next round."  -- Paul

Reveal CommentChris Wilde & Samuel Spanakis bt Mike Roibu & Jamie Macdonald (May 10) 2-6, 6-4, 7-6 (9-7)

Player Comments:

  • "A very entertaining and hard fought game against Mike & Jamie which had to be decided on a third set and under fairly windy conditions. There were several times, especially during the third set, where set points and match points were up for grabs, but the games just kept on going, leading to many deuce games. The result itself, could have gone either way, so well done to both our opponents, as well as my teammate Chris for such a great match! Hopefully we'll play again soon! PS. For furthers highlights, some of the game has been recorded by Mike's fixed on fence camera, just make sure you're an Amazon Prime subscriber! -- Sam "  -- Samuel

Player Comments:

  • "On a very pleasant spring evening, a very good natured encounter. The second set score was more indicative of the standard of play throughout, with lots of cross court rallies and deuces. A real pleasure to play against Julie and Jennifer who had not played astro surface before. The match was followed up by an equally entertaining mixed doubles set. Sam and I look forward to playing them again in future leagues. "  -- Chris
