  • "This was a battle that stretched for two days. First session extended for 2.5hrs where we played 25 games. In the first set, Bilal came back from a 5-3 to win the set 7-5. In the second I have to fight a 0-3 disadvantage and finally manage to take the set in tie break. Second session was a very entretaining set with long rallies. I managed to win some key points that made al the difference. "  -- Alvaro

Player Comments:

  • "Tough match as expected against Alvaro who is an outstanding player that I enjoy playing often with, he leads overall H2H. The match started with 5 breaks in a row and breaking my strings in the 3rd game. Alv kindly helped me to recondition an older racquet and allowed me to hit several balls before resuming, super fair play. Managed to hold twice and closed the first set. 2nd set was a one way street with Alvaro making no errors, playing very determined and winning no matter what I tried with a clear 6-0. 3rd set was a long battle in which I trailed behind one game the entire set and survived to play a tiebreak. Went up 4-1, however Alvaro came back, lead 5-4, 6-5 and forced me to save a match point before closing it 8-6. Good luck!!!"  -- Mihai

Reveal CommentMichael Archer bt Alvaro Cordero (Jun 23) 6-3, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "A closely fought contest with Alvaro at the very high bouncing courts of King George's field. A fierce competitor who you know fights for every point and adapts his game to the ebbs and flows of a match. It could quite easily have gone to a third set, Alvaro saving about 5 match points and having chances to take it to a tie break, however I somehow fell over the line. Good luck with your other matches."  -- Michael

Player Comments:

  • "Outstanding 2.5h match on Sunday against the great defender and consistent metronome Michael!!! First set was very disputed despite the score line, however Michael played to my strengths and was a bit unlucky in the key points of several games. Second set Michael managed to reset, focused on his strengths and played consistently and patiently point after point winning clearly the set and levelling the match. Third set was a battle head to head until 4-3 when luckaly a break came my way in a long disputed game and despite Michael not giving up managed to close the match. Well played Michael, good luck with the next matches and see you around! "  -- Mihai

Player Comments:

  • What a memorable match!!! 1st set started with a very motivated Alex who played extremely smart going up 2-0, 5-1 and had a set point at 5-3 despite all my efforts. Managed to survive the set point, broke back and in the following game after several deuces made it finally to 5-5 and started to feel more confident that I can turn the set around. In spite of losing the first set Alex regrouped and started again very focused going up 3-1 in the 2nd set really putting pressure on my game. Slowly recovered and made it to 4-3 when Alex broke my serve and went up to 5-4 threatening the outcome of the set moving incredibly well after more than 2h in the heat. You fought like a lion today Alex and good luck with your next league matches!! -- Mihai

Player Comments:

  • "Enjoyable game and well earned win for Mihai. I’m slowly finding form after lockdown and got off to a good start 4-1 but you always know Mihai will fight back and I had to fight to seal the first set 6-4. He continued his comeback and stormed to a 5-0 lead second set although I did haul him back to 5-4. Third set I lost a bit of form as the old legs tired and his forehand went up a notch to leave me scrambling for a lot of balls."  -- Toby
  • "1st set started with Toby going up confidently to 4-1 and had a 5-1 point when settled in and came back to 4-4 and 15-40 on his serve, however Toby strongly held and close the set with break on my serve after 1h. 2nd set was very interesting, reducing my unforced errors and playing more boldly managed to go up 5-0 and had a chance to close the set however Toby managed to break and started a 4 games streak come back pushing the set to the deciding game at 5-4. 3rd set was very disputed especially at 2-1 when after a long game managed the first break and after that Toby got a bit more tired than me I suppose. Anyway after 2.5h, 2100 calories, 30 min recovery on a park bench made it home barely walking and had a cold beer." -- Mihai

Player Comments:

  • "Well fought match played over 3 sets. Max dominated the 1st set with plenty of forehand winners. Even though I got the initial break he managed to come from behind. Second set perhaps I managed to clean up the errors from my game which resulted in long rallies on the stretch. Some lovely down the line on-the-run forehand winners from Max (reminded of Pete Sampras) at his best. 3rd set I managed to get an early break and after few exhausting long games managed to perhaps make less errors at key stages of the match. Max got an amazing forehand and I wish him all the best for his rest matches."  -- Bilal

Player Comments:

  • "Great playing Christopher again, beautiful strokes and interesting angles. However today couple of unforced errors in the key points gave me an undersved lead in the first set. Second set was extremely disputed with Chris breaking my service twice and coming back several times from 0-40 to hold on his serve. At 4-3 a very long game with several deuces went my way and manage to serve the match out. Good seeing you again and good luck with the next ones!!"  -- Mihai
Reveal CommentChristopher Belcourt bt Maximilian Rudolf (Jun 16) 6-3, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Max has brilliant ground strokes off both wings, with some vapourizing forehands. I saw balls fly past me both while at the net and in the baseline. After an early couple of brakes, during a game which saw max racing from the back of the court, some damage was clearly sustained. Having been very tight up until that point things soon started to change. In immense pain Max began to hit big on most points. With just a slightly higher percentage made he could have applied some pressure & forced errors from myself, however at that point it was clear all one needed to do was play safe. It is testament to his fighting spirit & desire to maintain a high league satisfaction among the group that he fought until the end. As the French say Chapeau"  -- Christopher
Reveal CommentMihai Nagit bt Bilal Basir (Jun 15) 4-6, 6-1, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "A 3h battle with long rallies, outstanding serves from Bilal (at least 7 aces) and both players giving it all despite the warm day. 1st set was very disputed going head to head until 4-5 when Bilal's aggressive forehands managed to break my service game and bag the first set. 2nd set was quite long and tough despite the score line. The 3rd one was very similar to the first one with first 5 games breaking each others serves and at 3-2 for me and 0-40 while serving I've managed to survive pushing the game to deuce and after probably 20 min, 8 deuces with chances on both sides managed to hold. I think this was the key moment of the match when this set could have gone either way. Great fighting spirit Bilal, good luck with the next ones!!!"  -- Mihai

Managed to get the tie break where i was down 2:4 but somehow managed to bring the set over the line. Lot of extreamly long rallies and very challanging to stay focused within these - physically and mentally. Second set start with Alex beeing quickly up 2:4 but again lot of long rallies and my serve helped me to get back to 4:4 after breaking Alex after 8! dueces my serve didnt let me down and i could finish the battle. Thank you very much Alex. Always a pleasure playing against you although not sure if my mind and body agrees..."  -- Maximilian

Reveal CommentChristopher Belcourt bt Bilal Basir (Jun 11) 6-2, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Started out as a very tense match, with bilal serving well and striking nice forehands. At two all it felt like it could have gone either way, but after a long battle I managed to take the game and Bilal's presence started to dwindle. Unfortunately it turned out to be an injured back which forced an all or nothing approach. Although there were many tight games from this point the lack of movement and ability to strike the ball in his usual manner saw him loose the crucial points. Clearly very frustrating. My wishes for a speedy recovery and an enjoyable remainder to the season. I feel you'll get me next time Bilal. Look forward to hitting again soon."  -- Christopher

Reveal CommentBilal Basir bt Toby Barton (Jun 8) 3-6, 6-2, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • “Toby took me by surprise with his moonballing skills and slices. He would hit the ball high up in outer space just to land close on the baseline. After adjusting to the initial shock had to step in closer inside the baseline to get the job done. Managed to break his serve twice each in 2nd and 3rd set to get the job done. Not the prettiest of tennis but managed to burn 2483 calories as per iwatch :)'' - Bilal
  • ''I never found my timing on the slow unpainted tarmac but Bilal made too many errors first set. Second set he was much steadier only going for occasional crunching forehands and my game was exposed. Final set I responded with plan B, moonballing and this led to long tedious rallies but Bilal remained a bit more aggressive and served well from 4-5 30-30 and then saw out the match quite comfortably.'' - Toby
Reveal CommentMihai Nagit bt Maximilian Rudolf (Jun 5) 6-3, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Great match once again against Max even bit rusty both after the lockdown. Both sets were quite similar with tight long games head to head until 4-3 followed by a break on Max serve and closing 6-3. I think we were quite tentative sometimes, playing safe and waiting for the opponent mistake. On top of that Max broke his strings at 2-2 in second set and I could see his frustration on a different stringed racquet however fair-play he continued the match and put up a good fight. Good luck with the next ones Max!!"  -- Mihai

I had been warned that Barry would be a tough opponent and I can say that he certainly was. Barry is a deceptive player with a very good first serve, which would always go low and fast over the net, but it was his incredible determination and knack of getting everything back that became frustrating to play against. Barry really makes you work for every point. In the end I had to play smart and slow down my shots to pick my spots to keep enough control to break Barry down.

Reveal CommentAnthony Dodge bt Michael Born (Jun 7) 6-2, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "A very friendly game with Michael played in good spirits on a slightly wet court at Moormead Rec. The dampness meant we didn't have many rallies but glad we got our match played. Michael proved an unpredictable opponent with some devilish fast serving but more impressive was his huge top spin forehand. Watch out for that ! I'd say Micheal played the best shots of the match with some fantastic forehand winners off my serve. Luckily my serve held for the most part and I played a solid game to stay in control. Thanks for game Michael & good luck with rest of your matches. Ant "  -- Anthony
