Player Comments:

  • "A thrilling match with Joshua under the floodlights of St Marks on an unusually warm October evening. A two set 6-3, 6-4 really doesn't show how tight this match was, going the full two hours. At 4-4, Deuce, we completed a rally that we estimate was at least 30 hits from the back line. It was that kind of match. From a neutral point of view it would have been an entertaining match to watch, but sadly it won't be appearing on Amazon Prime any time soon. Thanks for the match Joshua and I look forward to our next encounter."  -- Alastair
