Collapse AllReading Singles - Round 45 | Thursday 3 December 2020 to Wednesday 6 January 2021 (Midpoint: Wednesday 30 December 2020)

It's a shame this round had to end early due to lockdown but at least we managed to get past the midway point this time... meaning that you'll all receive a 50% round pass discount for next time! Well done for braving the often wintry weather to get so many matches played and we look forward to seeing you back in action before too long!

Group Summary:

It was tight at the top of Group 1 with Gerben and James both winning 3 matches to finish on 8 points apiece, and in the absence of a head to head Gerben edged the lead through conceding fewer games on average. Our 'Match of the Group' has to be Oli's epic 3 set win over Bernardo, an "awesome match which swung back and forth" which Oli eventually sealed in the final set tiebreak!

Final Rankings:

  1. Gerben Van San 10.1 [W3] 8 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. James Ansell 6.2 [W3] 8 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP
  3. Oli Grant [W2, L2] 6 includes 2 bonus points

Player Comments:

  • "Great to have Ollie in Group 1 as he's seriously upped his game over the past few months! Big banger serves, heavy top spins and angle shots were all on show today! Thankfully I was serving well and played aggressively to take time away from Ollie, which stoped him from lining up the monster forehands. Great match, with a lot of deuce points, he was unlucky not to get more, but certainly earns a well deserved spot in div 1 ;)"  -- James

Player Comments:

  • "Good to play Aaron for the first time. We started off very even with the score being 2-2 and none of us holding serve. I was able to keep serve after that and as the match went on Aaron was unable to pull off his trademark drop shots resulting in a slightly more easy second set. Thanks for the game Aaron and good luck with your future matches."  -- Gerben

  • "Great to play Oli again, this time on my home turf. I was lucky that Oli was still a bit rusty as it was his first game after lockdown 2.0. We ended up playing too hesitant resulting in too many unforced errors. After the match we played another set which was much closer and with much better unconstrained tennis from both of us - tennis continues to be a mental game we concluded. Thanks for the game and good luck with your future matches, Oli!"  -- Gerben

Reveal CommentGerben Van San bt Dominic Mansour (Dec 9) 6-1, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Another great encounter with Dominic. Our first three games nearly took us 45min with many deuces and it was clear that Dominic was going to give me a tough match. I opted for defensive style of play, frustrating Dominic at times who made some lovely winners but also more unforced errors, balancing the game in my favour. At the end of the second set Dominic started a great comeback, which I was happy to halt just in time before the pendulum might have swung his way. I am looking forward to our future encounters and I wish you good luck with your other matches in this round. "  -- Gerben

Player Comments:

  • "Great match against a great guy. Richard led for most of the first set, and probably deserved to take it - I managed to hang in there and nick it at the last. The second set was competitive all the way through. Just a few errors from Richard gave me a slight upper hand in the end. Looking forward to playing again!"  -- Aaron
Reveal CommentJames Ansell bt Huib Steenbergen (Dec 5) 6-2, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Great to be back playing again! Always a tough match with Huib who hits the ball extremely well and forces me to play aggressively to win points. The second set was close and Huib was hitting some great angle shots to get himself back in the game, but I was the more consistent on the day to take the win. Great match played in fine spirits! "  -- James

Group Summary:

Congratulations to Alan for opening up a 4 point lead at the top of the table, his 5 wins taking him clear of runner up Alex on 3 wins.

But the momentum was with me and I took the final 2 games to wrap up the first set. The 2nd set was nip and tuck and each game went to deuce. It had to be decided in a tie break and I managed to secure it but what a game. Alex, a true gentleman. Good Luck in the remainder of your games."  -- Alan

Group Summary:

Another close group with Liz and Andrew tied on 3 wins and 8 points, so again the top spot was decided by game difference as the pair hadn't yet played their head to head.
