Wonderful tennis, superb and long rallies, very few unforced errors, we pushed each other all the way and that brought the best in each of us. By far the best and toughest match in this round for me. Many thanks Pete, until next round."  -- Pavel

Player Comments:

  • "good tennis as always, fair to say though that there were a lot more unforced errors on both sides than usual. Very close match all the way, either set could have gone either way. I might have just had that little bit of extra luck today to win the match, especially in the last game when Andrew served a double fault on my second match point. Until next time Andrew, many thanks again."  -- Pavel
Reveal CommentPeter Shearman bt James Douglas (May 1) 6-3, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Damp courts outdoors at Batchwood made for a few slip-ups, James started well using drop shots v effectively. It was a close first set which I narrowly won 6-3. At 4-1 in the 2nd set James upped his consistency, particularly on the slice, and fought his way back to 5-4, saving a couple of match points at 5-3. I only just managed to break serve to finish 6-4. Well played mate"  -- Peter
Reveal CommentPeter Shearman bt Steven Dunn (Apr 30) 6-3, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "A close match in blustery conditions, the first set went on serve until I secured the key break to lead 5-3. Steve had two break points at 5-3 to get it back on serve but I held to close out 6-3. The second set I managed a 4-0 lead and closed out 6-2. Well played Steve"  -- Peter
Reveal CommentPavel Novotny bt James Douglas (Apr 30) 6-3, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "What can I say? Another amazing match. The opener : close all the way, every single game went to deuce bar one, needless to say I was lucky to take it. Second set, I took a 5:2 lead only because we had to switch courts and James was caught off guard. At 5:2, James served simply superbly, I had no chance at all of return. Had he served like this throughout the match, I wouldn't stand a chance. Another amazing match, it is for matches like these that I play the league. Superb tennis, amazing pace and some awesome rallies. Cannot wait till next round. Cheers James. "  -- Pavel
Reveal CommentPeter Shearman bt Thomas Abrahams (Apr 23) 3-6, 7-5, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "Ideal conditions, and at 6-3, 3-1 Tom was dominating the match. He had a break of serve in the 1st set and two more in the 2nd, hitting winners on pretty much everything. I made some adjustments to my serve and return game and switched from slice to topspin backhand. Tried my best to avoid his deadly forehand and keep the match centred on cross court backhand exchanges and net play. Still he very nearly took this match and at 5-5 in the 3rd it was extremely close. Well played mate!"  -- Peter
Reveal CommentAndrew De Csillery bt Steven Dunn (Apr 12) 6-0, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "One of those matches where everything came off the middle of the racket and most of the shots went where I wanted. I think Steve struggled a bit with an unfamiliar surface. But there were some nice rallies. Thanks for the game Steve. "  -- Andrew

Reveal CommentMiles Robinson bt Jonny Hatchman (May 9) 6-2, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "I took the first set fairly comfortably, helped by Jonny's serve misfiring. The second set was much tighter, with some good rallies and an epic final game with about ten deuces before I finally closed out the match. Enjoyable games despite neither of us being at our best.

  • "Unfortunately for Amir he was hampered by a shoulder injury that meant he couldn't serve at full power, which made it much easier for me than it should have been! In the first set I went 5-2 up, then Amir battled back to force a tie break, which I eventually edged 8-6. The second set was less close and I closed it out 6-2.

Player Comments:

  • "This was the nicest game I have had in the leagues so far. Susan has got gorgeous ground shots and if you give her a short ball you can kiss the point goodbye. The first set was even and in the second set Susan had a lapse for 15 minutes before we had some good games again at the end. A very enjoyable match even though I got passed by about the best running backhand down the line I have ever seen. It was past me before I moved. "  -- Philip

There were plenty of close games in the second but I managed to find a little more consistency on my serve, which was perhaps the difference.

Dave upped the aggression in a few games and when he won games - he won them comfortably with some strong forehands and drop shots I couldn't get anywhere near to!

Reveal CommentPhil Chin bt Richard Washbrook (May 6) 6-2, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Another hard fought match full of big hitting and big serves. The first set went my way, I was able to be more clinical and consistent on my serve and close out in a relatively straight forward manner. The second set was when the match came alive with lots of big hitting forehand rallies and a topsy turvy score line. I took the first 2 games to lead 2-0 before Richie took the next 4 before I then took the following 4 games to take the set 6-4 and the match. Very enjoyable match!"  -- Phil

Player Comments:

  • "A 2 hour 45 minute battle! Neither of us were able to pull away in the first set and it went to a tie breaker. It was going with serve at 3-3 when Charles stepped it up broke my serve and took the breaker with some good agressive tennis when it mattered. I got a lead in the second at 5-2 and was 30-0 on Charles serve, when I missed an easy volley.. a huge momentum switch and fight back it was back to 5-5. I somehow dug out 2 games to take it. A move to centre court for the 3rd set (due to coaching bookings not due to the quality!). Another long set and we both had chances to get a lead, at 5-5 anyone could have won. A great match in good spirt and lots of fight, shame someone had to lose! "  -- Richard

Reveal CommentNigel Stevens bt Richard Washbrook (Apr 25) 6-2, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "We started off on the outside courts (because there was an error in the booking time) which had an erratic bounce to say the least but managed to fit a set in before going indoors. The first set was a bit nip and tuck despite the scoreline. Richard found his feet indoors and managed to take a 2-4 lead until I won 4 games on the trot. A good game with some really good rallies. I particularly remember one half volley from Richard which was a joy to watch.... but unfortunately for me, bounced in! "  -- Nigel
Reveal CommentPhil Chin bt Charles Whitehead (Apr 23) 7-6 (7-4), 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "A long and hard fought match, the first set was very tight and tense with breaks of service consistently being swapped throughout before crucial holds for both took the set to a tie break which I managed to sneak 7-4. I managed to break for a 3-1 lead in the second set before a crucial long service game of my own which went to deuce many many times, saving many break points, managing finally to fend off the break back and take the momentum to seal victory."  -- Phil
Reveal CommentRichard Washbrook bt Samantha Calderwood (Apr 23) 6-2, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "A much closer first set than the score suggests, at 2-2 I just held my serve which ended up being an important game. Sam pretty much won all the long rallies early on which forced me to try shorten the points. I got off to a good start in the second which i managed to keep on to the lead with lot of close games. A fun match in the sun with some good rallies, Sam's whipping cross-court forehand for me to try and retrieve from the side fence a few times was tough going! "  -- Richard

Player Comments:

  • "A really enjoyable game. Dave started off like a steam train going 3-1 up but managed to get some consistency and win the next 5 games. The second set was a bit more straight forward. Ended up having a knock up which ended the night well. Look forward to catching up again in the future."  -- Nigel

Player Comments:

  • "A great match, in warm and sunny weather on artificial grass at Greenwood Park LTC. I managed to play some or my best tennis in the 1st set to win in straight games, but Tim came storming back in the 2nd when his serve started working really well, with fast first serves and impressive topspin on the second. My serve took a bit of a dip at the same time and Tim broke twice in the first 4 games. I then staged a bit of a comeback, getting one break back, but Tim managed to serve it out at 5-4. We both struggled with our serve in the third set, every game going to the returner up to 5-4. I then finally managed to pull my serve together to hold and take the match. Tim it was great to meet you, thanks for the match and I hope we meet again soon."  -- Ed

Player Comments:

  • "A good game on a nice spring evening. The first set started with a series of breaks with the first service not until the 5th game. I took the set and then managed to turn around an early break in the second set to close out the match. Thanks for the game Tim!"  -- Jonathan
Reveal CommentJonathan Sandars bt Ed Blake (Apr 11) 6-4, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "A really good, competitive game to start the new round. I managed to get a break in the first set, and close it out. The second set hinged on an epic game at 4-4 that felt like it lasted forever; the advantage swung one way, then the other and at one point it felt like neither of us would be able to win it, but i eventually managed to scrape the break and close out the set. Ed played really well, getting almost everything back and hitting some good, big serves. Thanks for the game Ed!"  -- Jonathan
