Player Comments:

  • "What a thriller! As the score suggests, it was an epic match that could have gone either way. All sets were very disputed and extremely long, so a match that started on a sunny Saturday morning in Malvern Park had to be put on hold at one set all and finished (indoors) on a rainy day in Tudor Grange. Although I was more aggressive and thought I had the match in hand a few times, Nav's experience and skills helped him come back and he was very close to claiming the win. This was probably our best match together since we started to play in the league, I hope we will manage maintain the same standard in the future! Nav, thanks for the two great tennis sessions and looking forward to the next one(s)!"  -- Vlad
Reveal CommentRichard Randle bt Krzysztof Waldon (May 9) 6-2, 7-6 (7-3)

Player Comments:

  • "Second time playing Krzysztof so I knew what to expect. He covers the court superbly and chases every ball. From 1-2 in the first set, I managed to hit a few winners to take the set 6-2. The second set was extremely close and I was relieved to take it to a tie break at 5-6 down. A third set would've been tiring and could've gone either way so I was happy to leave the court with a win in two sets. Thanks for another great game, Krzysztof."  -- Richard
Reveal CommentRichard Randle bt Silviu Herbei (Apr 30) 6-4, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Having played Silviu several times indoors, this was our first outdoor match. It was played in lovely conditions in the sun. Silviu started well and was 4-2 ahead in the first set before I improved and his level dropped a bit. Silviu is a very strong tennis player and the next match we play will be very different. "  -- Richard
Reveal CommentRichard Randle bt Chris Linsell (Apr 29) 6-1, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "It's obvious that Chris is a good player but the hard courts at Malvern Park don't suit his game. Despite that, he hit some great shots in the sun in Solihull. I was relatively consistent and managed to take the majority of the points. I would like to play again on Chris' preferred surface - I think the scoreline could quite easily be reversed! Thanks for the game."  -- Richard
Reveal CommentRichard Randle bt Nav Aulkh (Apr 28) 6-1, 3-6, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "Nav and I have played a few times over the past couple of years and despite a couple of close matches, I had never previously managed to win. Today's match was extremely close with many momentum swings. I got off to a fast start to take the first set before Nav's inevitable comeback, in which his serve & volley game was too much for me. At 1-4 down in the third, my aim was to win as many points as possible and make the score closer. Fortunately for me, I managed to win enough points to take the set 7-5. Another fantastic match with Nav - hoping for more of the same next time! "  -- Richard
Reveal CommentSilviu Herbei bt Vlad Giurcaneanu (Apr 27) 6-4, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "A very tight contest throughout against Vlad this evening with no difference between us We had lots of high quality rallies, trick shots and long deuce games. I was lucky to get in front at the end of both sets otherwise we would have had a very long match. Really enjoyed our game today and hope to play again soon..Thanks and well played Vlad Kyrgios"  -- Silviu

He had numerous set points in the 2nd set but I managed to hang in and see it out. Well played and look forward to playing you in better conditions next time."  -- Nav

Player Comments:

  • "Neither Krzysztof or I were in top form. It was Krzysztof’s second match of the day, so although he still chased every single ball his accuracy suffered, which allowed me to come on top in the end"  -- Vlad
Reveal CommentNav Aulkh bt Krzysztof Waldon (Apr 15) 6-2, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "First time Krzysztof and it was a good battle. He got everything back and played some delightful backhand passing shots. Lots of deuce games so the score line doesn't reflect how close the match was and the amount of running by both of us. Well played Krzysztof and looking forward to our next match "  -- Nav
Reveal CommentRichard Randle bt Vlad Giurcaneanu (Apr 8) 6-1, 7-6 (8-6)

Player Comments:

  • "Vlad and I always play good matches but this wasn't quite up to the standard of our last few friendly games. He came back in the second set and dominated it but I somehow stayed in it and won the tie break. If I hadn't, he would have had the momentum going into a third set. I was fortunate to win it in two sets, leaving time for more friendly tennis and the traditional beers. "  -- Richard
Reveal CommentNav Aulkh bt Chris Linsell (Apr 4) 6-3, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "First time playing Chris on a windy day at Malvern park. I knew from the warm up I was in for a good match. I think there was only one break in each set so it was a close match. Chris can hit winners from both wings and many games went to deuce. I managed to win more of them then Chris. Well played, looking forward to our next battle. "  -- Nav

Lucy found her rhythm towards the end of the first set and this carried through into the second. We had some really nice long rallies and there were some nice winning shots being played. The game was a lot closer than the final score and we were drawing 3 - 3 in the second with lots of games going to deuce. Well played Lucy, I look forward to playing you again :)"  -- Richard

Player Comments:

  • "Thankfully the rain had stopped before our game, it was also bit windy which took the pace off a couple of shots. Anish hit some nice topspin forehand shots, some of which were winners. Unfortunately he hit a few double faults in his service game which gave me the advantage. We had some nice rallies. It was lovely to meet and play an enjoyable game of Tennis with Anish. Looking forward to the next game! Hope you have a nice holiday :)"  -- Richard
