Player Comments:

  • "Mervin, brilliant first set, was a great contest. We both had our chances and in the end Mervin took the set in the tie-break. Despite the scores in the 2nd and 3rd set, virtually every game was a workout. We had some good rallies, but we both went for winners as well. I respect the speed you had around the court and some of your brilliant passing shots. Shame your serve didn't stay consistent after the first set which along with my service improving meant I got the upper hand. Looking forward to playing again, your court coverage had me on my toes all throughout the match. "  -- Paul

Player Comments:

  • "Always have a great hit with Paul! First set was very even but I got the best of the first few games showing just a touch more consistency. Second set, a couple of bad games at the start and Paul capitalised. Third set I went for it a bit more and Paul’s forehand re-deserted him. All in all very enjoyable game dominated by who was being the least inconsistent! A lot of fun as always, all the best with the rest of your games!"  -- Luke

Player Comments:

  • "Pat, we had a great match, thank you. The games went tit-for-tat almost all the way through. You have a great set of strokes and rhythm and style. You have a good serve, unfortunately it let you down towards the end and allowed me to scrape through in the second set. Your ground strokes were accurate, and we both managed to get in some brilliant passing shots. So all up, we had a close game. I wish you much success for the competition, and hope to play you again soon."  -- Paul
