Collapse AllGDT Slough Singles - Round 13 | Thursday 29 November 2018 to Wednesday 6 February 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 2 January 2019)
Over half the matches were played in this round, with several players getting their bonus points. Not bad with with Christmas and New Year to be squeezed in too - we even had matches on Boxing Day! A very tight battle for the top of Group 1 with Frank sadly retiring against Falco in their duel that may have decided the top two places - is this a rivalry that will continue? Group 2 had some great matches with Darren the eventual winner and Namfon a close second. Well done to everyone who played in this round and we look forward to seeing you in the next one!
Some great tennis played during this group with true LTL spirit shining through several of the on-court battles with score lines flipping from one side to the other! It looks like the festive season took its toll a little on matches played, with no one getting their bonus points in this group - New Year Resolutions for the next round? Well done to Falco for 5 victories to top the leader board. Frank finished a close runner-up, and it must have been a difficult decision to retire in his match against Falco as the score suggests it was a very tight battle up to that point! We hope to see this rivalry continue in the next round! Congratulations also to Sukhveer for battling through when suffering from tight calf muscles - we all know how painful that can be!
