Player Comments:

  • "Probably wise on the first warm day of the year that we agreed a deciding CTB if it got to 1-1 but on the other hand it meant Alex lost a bit of momentum from blitzing me in the second set. Many thanks for agreeing to play on the clay after losing to you twice on your hard courts. Hope to play again soon."  -- Toby

Le premier set etait tendu jusqu'a 3-2 et j'ai reussi a me detache ensuite. Tu m'as dis que tu ne t'entraines pas beaucoup actuellement alors n'hesites pas a m'appeler et nous irons nous entrainer.

Player Comments:

  • "Great conditions for today's battle on court. We both had the lead at points during the first set which was pretty tight. Clinton really put the pressure on in the second, upped the level of his serve and ran away with the second set. The third set was all about mitigating my errors but was closer than the score-line depicts. Plenty of demanding rallies and some great passing shots from both."  -- Rob

Player Comments:

  • "I don't think anyone has played a better set against me than Rob did in the first; really very little I could do against the tsunami of powerful groundstrokes. I wasn't getting upset with my own game, sometimes you just have to say too good. Obviously I had to mix it up a bit and found a few shots that he wasn't so confident with and eventually managed to get a grip on the match. We both served about 80% first serves which was encouraging. If Rob can keep that first set standard going I'm toast next time."  -- Toby
