Player Comments:

  • "Another enjoyable match with Deji. Very similar to the last one we played, with Deji’s fitness and stamina an encouragement for me to try and shorten the points! I didn’t always succeed, and we had several long rallies with a particularly tough game on my serve mid-way through the second set with multiple deuces, which I eventually edged. A closer contest than the score suggests. Well played Deji, good luck with your remaining matches, and look forward to playing again."  -- Bob
Reveal CommentPavel Novotny bt Kevin Lomas (Sep 10) 6-2, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "It was lovely to play Kevin after almost many many months, always a great match with his annoyingly good backhand slice. It was off to a unlucky start for Kevin as he injured his eyebrow area during warm up, bless! After I administered a plaster (all I am capable off), Kevin carried on - a true fighter. And Kevin started well, broke my very first service game but I regained control of my game and won the next 4 games. Kevin played well throughout and I don't think the scoreline is just. As I said his annoyingly good backhand slice made me dig deep. Thank you Kevin. Hope your injury is not too bad and your lock is fixed :) Play soon! "  -- Pavel
Reveal CommentDeji Jaiyesimi bt Toby Sweeney (Sep 4) 7-6 (7-4), 2-6, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Very even, up and down, and physical match, lasting about three hours! Managed to save set points in set one at 6-5 after Toby recovered from a slow start to the match to play some good tennis. I took the set to a tiebreak and managed to edge that. Toby came through in set 2 with some good consistent play, and then some cramping on my part affected me and the match, with a poor end to the 2nd set and poor start to the 3rd. I managed to recover enough to take the third set. Could have gone either way. Well played Toby and all the best with your remaining matches!"  -- Deji

Player Comments:

  • "Match played in lovely conditions and with a few competitive rallies ensuring the first set was tight, but in the second set I managed to sat ahead and close out the match after a double break. Thanks for the game Nick and all the best in your future matches :)"  -- Deji

Reveal CommentChristopher Perry bt David Mincer (Sep 9) 6-2, 0-6, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "An epic game of shifting momentum. A very long opening game set the scene. My forehand was working today enabling me to win some crucial points in the first set. David found the response to my forehand in the second set and absolutely crushed me 6-0. The 3rd set was back and forth with the lead switching a few times. I managed to save 3 match points at 5-4 down to bring things level. I failed to convert my first match point and thought we'd head to a tie break but a rare miss from David saw me steal the match on my second match point. It's often said but this one really could have gone either way! "  -- Christopher

Player Comments:

  • "A fun game, neither of us had decent balls, so frustrating for both of us, I worked out how to use this to my advantage at 4/5 down and I didn’t loose a game after that. First time I’ve ever beaten Tim in probably 5 matches. Can’t wait to play again."  -- Tim
