Player Comments:

  • "I think the score-line says it all. A nearly 3 hours three setter played in two days, in which every point was fought to the end by both sides. You played an incredible tennis for a large part of the second day. Fortunately I managed to stay in the match and make my games to bring the match to the tie break. Unfortunately there are no draws in tennis, this would have been a clear draw. I do not know if anyone deserved to win but it is clear that no one deserved to lose. All the best in the rest of the matches."  -- Pablo

  • "Congratulations Julian on your win, thanks for inviting me to your club to play our match. I have to stress though that I’m not happy with the way it went, the match tiebreak should have been agreed before the start of the match and not at 1:1. The chances are very different playing the whole set than playing the tiebreak. Also being under time pressure when you got other people around waiting to get on the court is far from ideal. But never mind, I should have said that before the tiebreak, you were the better player in it and deserved to win. Good luck in your next matches!" -- Radoslaw
