Reveal CommentMaddie Maxwell v Paul Bhanji (Sep 20) 3-6, 1-0 TBC

Player Comments:

  • "I felt a twinge on my backhand in the knock up, but decided to play through it as I thought it might loosen up. However, as the set went on, it was spreading to other shots, so Paul very kindly suggested that we finish this match another time. It'll be ok in a week or so - just needs resting. Thanks Paul, and see you soon."  -- Maddie
Reveal CommentTim Lundberg bt Maddie Maxwell (Sep 15) 6-3, 7-6 (7-0)

Player Comments:

  • "Such a pleasure to play with you Maddie, a fierce and skilled competitor. I had to fight for every point and was really quite lucky to get a result. Thank you, I look forward to playing again. "  -- Tim
Reveal CommentDaniel Kellard bt Tim Lundberg (Sep 11) 6-2, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Lovely weather and enjoyed meeting Tim for the first time. I played nicely retrieving the ball well and was able to get some momentum early on. I capitalised on some errors from Tim who struggled for consistency. There were patches where he struck the ball really well and it was clear the serve could be a real weapon. Look forward to playing again."  -- Daniel
Reveal CommentSarah Jolley bt Tim Lundberg (Sep 9) 6-1, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "The score did not do Tim justice - lots of deuces and some great backhand slices. Good luck Tim in your other matches this week. Sarah"  -- Sarah
Reveal CommentMaddie Maxwell bt Ian Fraser (Sep 1) 7-5, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Good to see Ian again. I was a tad rusty having not played singles for a while, and Ian was feeling the aftermath of moving a piano and decorating! Not the best prep for a match, but we had a good game, with Ian taking a 3-1 lead, then down 4-3, then up 5-4, at which point I managed to push thru' to win the set 7-5. Good luck with the rest of your matches Ian - and don't move any more pianos!"  -- Maddie
