Player Comments:

  • "First time playing Doug and it as a really enjoyable match. First set Doug was adjusting to my spin. Second set he came out fighting with numerous 10 to 8 shot rallies and slice winners. Well played Doug. Looking forward to our next game. "  -- Nav

Player Comments:

  • "First time playing Nick and it was a great match to be involved in. Nick is a good all round tennis player. His consistency and net play meant we had many long rallies. The last set score doesnt reflect the many break points Nick had and lucky for me, failed to convert. Well played Nick, looking forward to our next battle."  -- Nav

Player Comments:

  • "This was the first time I played Doug in a few years. It seems like I timed it well, as this was his first match after his summer holidays, therefore his movement around the court was a bit... hesitant! Nevertheless, Doug surprised me with his greatly improved serve and several splendid drop shops. A very nice afternoon of tennis, sprinkled with a very enjoyable chat - as ever!"  -- Vlad
Reveal CommentRichard Randle bt Carlos Miranda (Sep 10) 6-1, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "A very enjoyable Friday evening of tennis at Tudor Grange. We actually played a solid two hours as we managed an additional two sets following the match. The scoreline doesn't reflect Carlos' shots and his impressive first serve. I was lucky enough to find some consistency but it was far from a one sided game. Thanks for the game, Carlos, and I look forward to playing again soon."  -- Richard
Reveal CommentVlad Giurcaneanu bt Nick King (Sep 6) 6-3, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "From our previous match I knew to expect a clever and aggressive play from Nick, so I did my best to hit the balls hard while being consistent. This seems to have done the trick, helped by the fact that Nick hit quite a few unforced errors, including double faults, at important points of the match. With the pressure of the match off Nick was very close to snatch the third (friendly) set. Thanks for the match Nick, looking forward to our next encounter - maybe a few doubles matches to mix it up a bit? "  -- Vlad
Reveal CommentVlad Giurcaneanu bt Jonathan Winspeare (Sep 4) 6-2, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Good to see Jon returning to the league after almost two years. Unfortunately his game was a bit hesitant and inconsistent - as expected after a long break. He hit a few wonderful cross-court winners, but these were outnumbered by the unforced errors, which helped me win the match easier than expected. All in all a very nice Saturday afternoon on the surprisingly deserted tennis courts from Shirley"  -- Vlad
Reveal CommentVlad Giurcaneanu bt Richard Randle (Sep 3) 3-6, 6-4, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "At 6-3 4-1 for Richard it looked like we would be heading for the pub earlier than planned. I somehow managed to shake the errors off, to serve a bit better and to force Richard to make more errors himself. The third set was the best, with both of us hitting quite a few beautiful winners. Quite a rollercoaster it was, Richard lead again by 4-2 but I somehow found more energy and wrapped it up. As ever, a very pleasant match followed by a few rounds of similarly pleasant refreshments. Cheers Richard!"  -- Vlad

Player Comments:

  • "I got what I expected. Another close match that could have either way. Vlad is a exceptional tennis player that adopts to all scenarios. The first set was straightforward because Vlad lacked matchplay. Second set was when Vlad stepped up a gear with winners from both sides. The tie break could have gone either way. Well played Vlad. Next time you go on holiday lets play again :)"  -- Nav

Player Comments:

  • "Second time playing Nick and this was even closer than the first game between us. We both made errors at times but overall played a steady match which I was fortunate enough to win. The sun played its part and made it difficult to serve from one end of the court. Overall, an enjoyable game. "  -- Richard
