Player Comments:

  • "In the first set I held my serve in the third game but every other game was a service break. The first set was very close. The second set was a bit easier for me but Hesham wasn't feeling well today and it was good of him to play the match to a finish."  -- Laurence

Player Comments:

  • "One more very leveled and epic match with Sam where we each had our moments and it could easily have gone either way. 1st set went to the breaker which I won by the narrowest margin. Sam dominated the 2nd to come back one set all. In the 3rd I got the break and the score was 3-2 when we agreed after 2.5 hours to continue the festivities another day. Which we did last Friday and Sam quickly came back to lead 5-4 when the rain decided to play its part and forced us to postpone again. We started this morning with myself serving to stay in the match. I had to save two match pts but hanged in there. We agreed to play Wimbledon rules (no tie break) and after saving 3 more match pts I eventually came in front 9-7 ! Really enjoyed it, thanks Sam! "  -- Loris
