Reveal CommentAlastair Kirk bt Aviral Mittal (Jul 29) 7-6 (7-5), 3-6, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "This felt more like a cricket Test Match over three days than a tennis match. Day 1: Avi led 4-1, but the set was postponed due to heavy rain. Day 2: I managed to come back to 4-4 with the first set going to a tie break that I won 7-5. Avi bounced back in the second set, winning 6-3 before our time was up. It was a great night of tennis with both of us taking something positive away from the unfinished match, which was close with long rallies. Day 3: This had now become a one-set decider. Avi got off to the better start and at 5-2, it seemed like it was heading in his direction. However, I came back to 5-5 and then narrowly won 7-5 after a long and tense 12th game of the final set. Thank you Avi for three days of enjoyable tennis. "  -- Alastair

Player Comments:

  • "A great match spread over two days. Day 1, Yogesh took the first set 6-2 and I took the second 6-4. On the second day we had one set to start and finish. I took the lead 4-1, but at 4-3 it really could have gone either way with both of us have advantage points in a lengthy game. This was a long match considering neither set went to a tie break. Thanks for the game Yogesh, I look forward to our next match."  -- Alastair

Player Comments:

  • "Great to play Puranjay again and a very good, enjoyable match. Puranjay found his serving rhythm in the first set and came back to lead 6-5. Some lucky breaks and net cords swung the set for me. The second set score bore no relation to the games with loads of juice points and, again, luck on my part gifted me a number of games. Thanks very much Puranjay for the match and thanks for travelling to Pewsey so we could get it played."  -- Mark

Player Comments:

  • "Really close match played under windy conditions. Alastair is really consistent with his groundstokes which made it very difficult through both the sets. The first set was closely fought throughout and I was lucky in the first set tie break with my serves. The second set was very close as well as Alastair kept pushing me and I needed some help from the net cord on match point to get over the line. All the best for your remaining matches."  -- Puranjay

Reveal CommentPuranjay Das bt Aviral Mittal (Jul 8) 3-6, 7-6 (7-5), 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "A real roller-coaster battle with the first set played under rainy conditions. I couldn't get my serve going and with the score at 3-6/2-5 (15-40) on my serve, I finally managed to hit an ace. I won the next 4 games and at 40-15 and 2 set points in hand, I ended up double faulting and the set went into a tie-break. In the tie-break Avi took a 4-0 lead, but I won the next 6 points and managed to win the second set. As Avi started to get tired and an old injury flared up, I could close out the third set 6-1. Well played Avi and wish you all the best for the remaining matches. "  -- Puranjay

Player Comments:

  • "enjoyed this match with Jaroslaw, long rallies and very evenly matched, first set neither could win our serves early on and i was consistent enough at the end of set to take it, Jaroslaw played really well second set and probably deserved to take it, he had a set point at 5-4 on my serve, i manged to produce my best serve of the match and grab an ace to save the set point and eventually hold serve. Jaroslaw was then struggling with his serve and double faulted a couple of times to give me the upper hand in the set and i broke him to go 6-5 up, i then served out to win the match 6-4, 7-5. great to play you Jaroslaw looking forward to our next match. best of luck for the rest of your matches!"  -- Grant

Player Comments:

  • "Excellent match with Abhishek, we had to play over 2 nights due to awful rain, Abhishek played really well on the first night and probably should have won the game 2 sets to love, but I battled back in the second scraping points as I wasn't playing well at all. 3rd set was in alot better conditions and Abhishek raced into a 4-1 lead and then 5-3 and I thought the writing was on the wall, but I found some consistency with my serve and Abhishek started to struggle with his serve and it let me back into the game we ended up needing a tie break to settle it, which I was very consistent in and came through 7-2, if I'm honest I feel like I got away with a lucky win there. Well played Abhishek look forward to playing you again."  -- Grant

Player Comments:

  • "Great weather for tennis tonight. Ed started strong leading 0-2 in the first set. I struggled to find form - my first serves wasn't working and I was making one too many unforced errors. By 4-4 I decided to just try and stay in the game. It worked and luckily I won the first set 6-4 after coming from behind. By the 2nd set I was playing and serving much better. I was leading 5-0 and finished 6-1. All the best in your remaining games Ed. "  -- Uchenna
Reveal CommentAbhishek Sharma bt Jaroslaw Pieta (Jul 7) 6-4, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Not sure it was the courts on the far side (#9 is a bit uneven), the heat, or the new Soderling Pro balls we were trying out (which btw are a little heavier than the normal ones) but both Jarek and I genuinely struggled throughout the match to really get into our stride. Thankfully, the first set went my way though and after some better, more consistent rallies in the second set I was able to get the win. Overall, definitely not the most competitive match I’ve had with Jarek (all previous matches of ours have gone to 3 sets) but I think the next time, given better conditions, it will definitely be much tougher. Look forward to playing you again!"  -- Abhishek

Both had a lot of unforced errors and a fair amount of mishits which the wind thankfully kept in to keep the rally going. Under better conditions, I think it’d have been a much tougher and longer battle!"  -- Abhishek
