I am not sure what would have happened if you had taken the match to a third set. All the best in the rest of your matches."  -- Pablo

  • "A three hour epic between two very similar players. Given how many games went to deuce, each set could have gone either way and my aching legs and arms are testament to how hard we both had to work for pretty much every point."  -- Rico
Reveal CommentRico Harris bt Tom Saunders (Apr 29) 6-1, 6-4

Reveal CommentRico Harris bt Radoslaw Kempinski (Apr 25) 6-4, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "A good match in glorious sunshine and howling wind. A topsy-turvy turvy first set saw one player sail into am early lead before being pegged back. The conditions made it tough for both players to play their usual game but some memorable points nonetheless. The second set saw more errors as a result of the conditions and some heavily wind assisted points. All in all an enjoyable game, looking forward to the rematch!"  -- Rico

Knowing eachother's game inside out makes for long, gruelling points and the addition of brunch as the reward added even more incentive.

I have been lucky to be the first playing against you because I am sure that as soon as you play a couple of times more you will be unplayable for me.
