Player Comments:

  • "Having had the pleasure of playing Vlad in the league and in friendlies for a few years now, it's fair to say that we know each other's game inside out. Tonight wasn't our best match, with unforced errors dominating the points, but we both hit some great winners and ran around relentlessly for two hours. Despite it only being a Thursday night, we even made time for a beer or two after our game had finished. As always, a superb match and I know we'll continue to play many games in the future. Not long until the outdoor season starts again! Thanks for a great game, Vlad."  -- Richard
Reveal CommentEldin Basic bt Pretesh Chauhan (Feb 1) 7-5, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Decent match. Pretesh improved on last year and made same great forehands and even served an ace or two, but needs to work on backhand and 2nd serve."  -- Eldin
Reveal CommentVlad Giurcaneanu bt Eldin Basic (Jan 28) 6-1, 2-6, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Neither Eldin or I were in top form today. We both hit some great shots but we hit a higher number of unforced errors. After the first set I thought I’ll bag an easier win but Eldin switched on and played a perfect set, with great serves and loads of powerful attacking shots. He continued the form into the third set, but at 2-0 up he slowed down a bit which allowed me to get myself together and get back in front. The momentum swing was helped by one extremely lucky return of serve and one awful let cord - both mine… Thanks for the match Eldin, hopefully our next one will be outdoors!"  -- Vlad
Reveal CommentRichard Randle bt Eldin Basic (Jan 15) 6-4, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "Eldin and I usually have good, close games. This evening's game was close, but sadly not very good. Neither of us were on top form and it made for a scrappy match. I was fortunate with net cords as I didn't feel that I was hitting the ball well. Eldin deserved more from the match and, in honesty, luck was on my side today. Look forward to our next game."  -- Richard

Player Comments:

  • "Great match today with Maggie. We had plenty of long rallies, and we both had good serving spells. The surface at Shirley Park was a little bit icy with the frosty weather of course, so you had to watch your footing around the court's edges, but we played in the sunshine and soon warmed up nicely! Maggie has excellent shots in her locker, and it was a very good contest that could have gone either way. I look forward to our next match sometime in the near future."  -- Michael
