Player Comments:

  • "Match played today in ideal conditions with warm weather and no wind. A fantastic match which despite what the scoreline suggests could have gone either way. Most games were tight and went to many deuces. There were a number of long rallies which combined with the warm weather made it a real test of stamina. I was pleased to come out of each set with a close win as both went to a 4-3 scoreline. Thanks for the match Jack and good luck with the rest of your matches. "  -- David

Player Comments:

  • "The match was played this afternoon in ideal dry conditions. Michael has only recently returned to playing tennis and yet demonstrated some quality shots. A tight first set with many deuce games. The second set was a little easier as Michael just lacked a little bit of fitness coupled with a slight injury to his ankle."  -- David

  • "The match was played this Sunday morning in ideal conditions with sunshine and no wind. A great match with many long rallies. Felipe showed tremendous grit and determination to win the match in straight sets. This was typified by the fact he was 0-4 down in the second set but was able to get back to 4-4 and then went on to win the set 7-5. Well done Felipe."  -- David
