Reveal CommentAaron King bt Maciej Smajda (Oct 8) 6-2, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "I found a good rhythm early. At 4-1 in during the second set.....I thought that i would be home in time for lunch. Well, Maciej had other ideas. He levelled it at 4-4. Then I went 5-4, then 5-5. By this point I regained the momentum and won the next 2 games and the match. Maciej did save a match point when I was 5-4 up. We both played some good winners and first serves. There were lots of good rallies. I expect that Maciej to be a dark horse in the group and will win many matches in the future. Well played :)"  -- Aaron

Player Comments:

Player Comments:

  • "A pleasant morning to play tennis although there was same wind, which affected Jarek’s game more then mine.We all have bad days and good days and today wasn’t Jarek’s day.The first set was well contested but the second set was uneven maybe because of the wind and also lack of confidence. Good luck for the next games Jarek. Carlos Tavares "  -- Carlos

Reveal CommentCarlos Tavares bt Maciej Smajda (Sep 11) 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (7-3)

Player Comments:

  • "A very emotional game. I really enjoyed playing with Maciej. I had to sweat a lot and believe that it was possible to win. First set won 6/4. Second set I lost 3/6 ( game very well played by Maciej ). Third set Maciej was very rightly winning by 2/5 and serving to win the set but faithful to what I believe that “ the game only ends when there is a winner” I recovered from 2/5 to 6/5 making Maciej the 6/6. In the tiebreak, losing by 1/3,I recovered again and won by 7/3. Nice morning to play tennis and a great opponent. Good luck for you in the next games. Carlos "  -- Carlos

Player Comments:

  • "It was on serve in the first set until 3-3. I found a rhythm from that point and managed to maintain the momentum. Some solid first serves from Jarek in the first set and some very good passing shots from him when I approached the net. Quite tough light with the dark clouds and a lot of noise. It was difficult to maintain concentration for both of us during this match. "  -- Aaron

Reveal CommentNicholas Newton bt Aaron King (Sep 1) 6-4, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Really tough battle with Aaron, with lots of enjoyable hard hitting rallies. The first set was pretty even until 4-4, when I took the last 2. Then Aaron hit top form at the start of the 2nd, hitting me off the court to lead 4-0. I just hung on hoping his form would dip again, and luckily for me it did, though it still could have gone either way."  -- Nicholas

Player Comments:

  • "Really fast paced and fun match against Dean. At one point, when Dean was 4-1 up in the second, I thought we’d end up over running our booked slot and go to three sets. But thankfully, it went to tiebreak instead. Good to hear that Dean has joined the club - look forward to playing him more!"  -- Abhishek
Reveal CommentAbhishek Sharma bt Martin Lee (Oct 8) 7-5, 7-6 (7-4)

Player Comments:

  • "Really enjoyed playing against Martin! It’s always a little tricky when playing someone new as it takes a while just to get used to each other’s playing style. I was 5-3 up in the first set but Martin suddenly stepped it up and played some amazing drop shots at critical points to make it 5-5. Same thing happened in the second set too - I was 4-2 up at one point and thought I had the match in the bag but Martin’s persistent play and constant attacks on my backhand took it all the way to a tiebreak! Overall an extremely fun match that could’ve easily been a three setter which could’ve gone either way."  -- Abhishek
Reveal CommentAbhishek Sharma bt Tony Wilson (Oct 4) 6-3, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "It feels like every time I play Tony, he makes me run more and more! A little wind here and there but otherwise it was a great evening for tennis - all of the games were really straight-forward, with only 2 going to deuce. The longest game was probably the last one, where Tony kept saving match point after match point but thankfully, it went my way in the end."  -- Abhishek
Reveal CommentUchenna Adimonye bt Dean Mitchell (Oct 2) 5-7, 6-2, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "First time playing Dean, and what a match! The match lasted about ~2hrs 45mins overrunning the initial 2hr slot. We had to extend the booking and get the flood flights on to finish. First set took over 1hr 15mins with Dean coming from behind to take it 5-7. In the second set, thankfully, my serves improved and I started hitting my shots a bit better. I lost count of the number of deuces we played, most games went to dueces. The match could have gone either way with both of us nearing exhaustion towards the end, but I somehow managed to hold on to win. Great tennis from both sides tonight. All the best with your remainig games and I look forward to playing you again. "  -- Uchenna
Reveal CommentMartin Lee bt Tony Wilson (Oct 1) 6-4, 7-6 (7-4)

Player Comments:

  • "A really enjoyable hard fought battle in windy conditions . Just the first game had 6 deuces..I eventual won it. Tony got the better of me and the conditions and got a few games lead before I managed to peg him back to edge the first set. Much the same in the second set with many deuce games and which I just edged in the tie break. Almost out of time and good light by then too. Look forward to another match up."  -- Martin

Player Comments:

  • "Very good fun game with Lucie. The scoreline doesn't reflect the match. Lucie nearly broke my serve in the first game of the first set with about 4 deuces before I managed to win it. The last game of the second set was similar and had no fewer than 8 deuces! Thanks for the match and all the best for your remaining games."  -- Uchenna

Reveal CommentAbhishek Sharma bt Paul Stevens (Sep 15) 6-4, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "The last time we played, I wasn’t able to give Paul much of a match but this time around it was an absolute slugfest. Nearly every game went to deuce, including the final game where Paul managed to keep saving 5 match points in a row! The score in the second set doesn’t do justice to Paul’s persistence and play - he had me running all over the court! Really really enjoyed the match and look forward to the next time we play 🙂"  -- Abhishek

I think the worm got in Uche's head having been two points away from finishing the match as the third set produced a lot of unforced errors. Great game Uche. Thanks."  -- Tony
