Reveal CommentDavid Evans bt Alexander Hopkins (Jul 27) 6-0, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "A warm Graves Park simmered with the possibilities of summer. Amidst the gentle knock of lawn bowls and the crack of pitching wedge on Titleist, David and Alex settled into a brief yet short match. The cliche ‘it was tighter than the score suggested’ could not be more apt here, with many games going to deuce and Alex hitting a number of winners. However, watched intently by the oak trees of court five, David’s fierce spin, consistent ground strokes and long looping defensive shots saw him take the first set to love. During the second, Alex briefly looked slightly less like a forlorn squirrel trying hopelessly gnaw a cashew out of a well protected bird feeder and avoided the double-d. David was victorious, but tennis was the real winner. "  -- Alexander

Player Comments:

  • "A beautiful yet blistering High Hazels Park bore witness to an epic battle between two even matched players. Luqman’s pace and defensive play saw him chasing down everything, always forcing Alex to play an extra shot. The younger player took the opening set in a tense tie-breaker. The second set also went to a breaker, this time Alex managing to hold on to take it to a third. The final set was also a close affair but towards the end Alex seemed to find some rhythm with his forehand with a number of spectacular winners down the line. Alex won a very close match, but tennis was the real winner. "  -- Alexander

Player Comments:

  • "A much closer game than the score line indicates. I was lucky with quite a few shots that hit the net and went my way, the tennis gods were on my side. Another day and Neil could quite easily have won, but that's tennis I guess. I'm sure we will play again and the luck will even it's self. All the best with your matches."  -- Richard
