I managed to pull myself together and started to raise my consistency to pull it back, but it just wasn't enough to take the 1st set. Into the 2nd I started much better and kept ahead. Alex was on top form, hitting alot of backend winners and pushing me around the court for some long rallies. The 3rd was much closer and it could have easily gone either way. My serves kept me in front, and after 3hrs, I managed to take the win. Top match! "  -- James

Always a tough game against him and he started very strongly today, hitting the ball well and pushing me around the court. I gave myself a serious talking after the first set and started much more aggressively in the second. and started making my shots. Liem eased off a little and I took the 2nd quickly. I started strong in the 3rd but Liem started to get his game back and was hitting the ball well. I had to up my game to stop any chance of a strong comeback by him! Great fun played in excellent spirits!"  -- James

Glad to complete the match in 2 sets on a hot afternoon. Thanks Enzo, great match and best wishes for your other games."  -- Alan

Player Comments:

  • "What a great match with Alan. Ebbed and flowed. I started well and was 3-0 up, then Alan won the next 5 games to go 5-3 up. Next two games with serve, so 1st set to Alan. The next set pivoted on one of my service games that went to 7 or 8 deuces before I just won. The 6-1 score certainly did not reflect the closeness. Alan started the 3rd set well going 2-0 up, then another long deuce game on Alan's serve that I just managed to win. At 5-4, Alan broke me when I was serving for the match, so 5-5. I managed to break back immediately. Then held my serve. What a great match - thank you Alan. Good luck with the rest of your matches - hopefully see you in the next round!"  -- Phil
