Player Comments:

  • "Lovely evening for a great battle! Falco started well, effortlessly putting away some lovely backhand winners, and with an early break. Lucky to have got a foothold and some better returning meant I edged the first set. Another tight set in the 2nd with Falco deservedely taking. 3rd set was me and Falco trading breaks of serves until what ended up being my last service game. Great battle and just happy to have not been bagled like the last time I played Falco in the league."  -- Randeep

I was up 5-1 in the first set but Piers clicked into gear to get back to 5-5 before I scraped it. Piers was on a mission in the 2nd set and quickly dispatched me 6-1. We managed 3 tight games at the start of the 3rd before the lights went out. A shame, but thanks for the great tennis Piers!"  -- Sandeep
