Overall the match had a good level with few momentum swings and close games mostly in second set when Vlad played really well ..in the end I've managed to be more consistent and that helped me to win today Looking forward to our next match...Thanks and well played Vlad"  -- Silviu

Reveal CommentRichard Randle bt Nav Aulkh (Sep 14) 6-2, 6-7 (5-7), 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "A superb match with Vlad indoors at Tudor Grange. I've played a few matches there recently, which I think helped me to make a fast start and win the first set. I knew Nav would come back and he gained a big lead in the second set before I pushed it to a tie break, which Nav won to deservedly take the second set. I was then able to play consistent tennis in the third set although many games were close, making the 6-1 scoreline a bit flattering. I look forward to our next match."  -- Richard
Reveal CommentRichard Randle bt Krzysztof Waldon (Sep 14) 6-4, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "Another great battle with Krzysztof. Once again, he chased absolutely everything but his overall game has improved as well. His net play in particular was impressive as he ended several points with volleys. Krzysztof was leading both sets 4-3 so was unlucky to not win at least one set today. He's getting more difficult to beat with every match we play. Thanks for the game and I look forward to the next one."  -- Richard

Player Comments:

  • "Great to meet and play Richard again.The game was tight as always with many quality rallies where Richard started really well in first set which made me overthink & questioning my presence there. In second set Richard slowed down a bit and somehow I've managed to get my head around and get back into the game where I think my serve helped me once again to stay ahead in the end. Well played Richard and looking forward to our next match.Thanks"  -- Silviu

Reveal CommentRichard Randle bt Nader Feghhi (Sep 9) 7-5, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Having played Nader a few times in the past, I know how good a player he is and how well he hits the ball. I couldn't cope with his shots early in the first set and he had a few set points on my serve at 4-5 before I luckily held. I was also 2-4 down in the second, which shows how unfortunate Nader was to lose this evening. I look forward to our next match! "  -- Richard
Reveal CommentRichard Randle bt Vlad Giurcaneanu (Sep 8) 2-6, 6-4, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "A thoroughly undeserved win for me. Vlad totally dominated the first set, hitting great shots on both the forehand and backhand. This continued in the second set but I chased everything and worked hard for any point I could win. Vlad got a slight injury in this set and I won it despite being second best. We just about had time to finish the third set before Tudor Grange closing time but there's no doubt that the better player this evening lost the match. No doubt we'll play many matches in the future as we have over the past few year. It's always close, competitive tennis. "  -- Richard

Today it was the same but Nader didn't played at his normal level so I've managed to stay ahead on both set's. Thanks for another match Nader and I look forward to our future matches."  -- Silviu
Reveal CommentSilviu Herbei bt Nav Aulkh (Aug 27) 6-1, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "An enjoyable match against Nav today on a lovely weather. This was our third match where Nav won previous 2 matches fairly comfortably so I was pleased with my winning today but I admit that playing today on a quick surface (turf) made the difference. Overall we had some great rallies and close games especially in the second set where Nav had a great comeback but somehow I've managed to hang in and see it out. Well played Nav and see you next time..thanks! I was relatively consistent and managed to take the majority of the points"  -- Silviu

Player Comments:

  • "Enjoyable match against Nader. The longer the match went on the more Nadar improved. The 2nd set could have been alot tighter as Nadar found his cross court bankhand and many games went to dunce. Well played, looking forward to our next match."  -- Nav

Player Comments:

  • "Great to meet Jose for the first time tonight. Jose played a great first set winning 5 games in a row to claim the first set leaving me doubting my game and my ability. His first serve is the fastest I've faced and his finesse around the net is very good also. The second set I found some rhythm and was up 3-1. During the 5th game on Jose serve we might have got close to 20 deuce's the game went on for an eternity. I managed to nick that game and definitely felt a momentum shift. From there the match went more my way. Was a close match and I really had to work for the win tonight. "  -- Jonathan

Lawrence too didn’t have a good day at office, apart from the serve his rallies let him down. He found his serve and volley working well in the second set but it was a little late by then. Good luck Lawrence for rest of the matches and future leagues. "  -- Vik

Reveal CommentJonathan Winspeare bt Laurence Chan (Sep 4) 6-4, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Brilliant game today with Laurance. Through the whole of the first set Laurence had me at multiple deuce's on everyone of my service games, making me work extremely hard. At 4-4 I managed to break and hold serve to take the fist set, Laurance could not have been closer to winning it himself. The second set I started to find more rhythm, hitting more first serves and producing less unforced errors. Laurance's serve had me in all kinds of trouble, at times I had no idea what to do with it it was that fast. Shot of the match has to go to Laurance as well, my approach shot felt fast and deep into his back hand corner on for him to whip the most beautiful backhand passing shot leaving me in awe. Well played."  -- Jonathan

The weather wasn't the best - cool for the time of year and windy at times, thankfully it had stopped raining earlier but the court was a little bit slippy in places as it was still dying out. Sean had a few double faults and didn't fully find his rhythm until the second set. The score line was flattering in the end. We had a third friendly set where Sean was more relaxed and the set was much tighter with longer rallies. Thanks for a great evening of tennis. I'll look forward to our next match.

However the second set was much different with some terrific long rallies and Jez starting to find his range and depth, particularly on the forehand. I managed to stem a mid-set recovery and eventually get over the line. Many thanks for the game Jez and I look forward to playing you again in the future. "  -- Dougald
