Player Comments:

  • "What a match! Over 2 hours of high quality tennis with long rallies and a fair number of winners. Errors were mainly forced. The match swung one way then the other but ultimately I managed to find the decisive breakthrough at 3-3 in the final set. Christophe defends so well I had to go for the lines many times every rally just to win the point - even on match point! Played in great spirit too - thank you so much Christophe, this is why I enjoy the local leagues so much."  -- Andrew

  • "What a game against Andrew, with long rallies and some very good winning shots from both of us. Took 2 days to complete, yesterday ending on 4-3 to me on the last set with Andrew to serve and today, 12th December, where Andrew took the game comfortably to make it 4-4 and then 40-love up on my serve. Lucky managed to power 3 serves through to get to deuce and convert the point to win the game. Last game was very unlucky by Andrew, losing 2 crucial points played an advantage for me. Very nice game as usual mate. Looking forward to the next one! "  -- Eren

Player Comments:

  • "Finally managed to meet and finish our Match. 1st set Szabolcs was very consistent and kept pushing me towards unforced errors. Second set i had to come a bit harder but there was nothing in it still, I just managed to break and take the set. 3rd set which then finished today (13th Nov), I had to come in all power and take the lead at 2-0. Szabolcs then started pushing back and defending very well but a few winners allowed me to take the set. We then carried on playing couple more sets and Szabolcs seemed to have found more energy towards the end with his side to side defending and winning some good points. Thanks mate, see you again soon."  -- Eren

  • "A wonderful match with a challenging duce start and great come backs by Andrew. Score is not representative of the match. A lot of games went to long point battles. Strong cross court back hand returns by Andrew on my serves. Great play and hope to play again - will make sure to bring some lovely Hungarian wine to enjoy after. Koszonom szepen! "  -- Szabolcs

Player Comments:

  • "What a great match, it’s been a while since I’ve played and Andrew made me earn every game. First set I was able to get out to a 3-0 lead but Andrew fought his way back, with some great serving and well played points. Second set was a battle, I was up 5-2 serving for the match and Andrew came back with a break and a hold of serve. In the end I was able to serve it out and take the win. Really enjoyed the match and looking forward to playing again in the future. "  -- Justin

Player Comments:

  • "Scoreline not reflective of the match and a bit unfair on Szabi, a lot of games went to deuce and I just won vast majority of them. Some superb winners by Szabi and yes that annoyingly good slice on his serve caused me serious trouble in returning. Well played Szabi, until next time."  -- Pavel
Reveal CommentPavel Novotny bt Andrew De Csillery (Oct 31) 6-3, 5-7, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Marathon, 3 hour match played over 2 sessions. Andrew played amazingly well, putting me under constant pressure and not letting me hit winners. First set unfair on Andrew, nearly all games went to deuce and I was just lucky to take most. Andrew totally dominated the 2nd set, not sure how I managed to win those 5 games. I improved in the third set; there were a lot of long, quality rallies and superb shots by Andrew, one of them was just world class that I had to go over to his half of the court and give him a high five. Tennis Maestro Csillery! I don't hink I've ever hit such an amazing winner so despite having won the match, I am just a little bit envious of Andrew's shot quality :)"  -- Pavel
