  • "Couldn't cope with Simon's first aggressive serve plus good returns that gave him an early brake on my first serve. 2nd. and 3rd. set were a different story. I attacked more on his backhand and didn't allow him to give so many good returns. Always good fun to play against Simon. "  -- Andres

Player Comments:

  • "Relieved to finally break my long losing run, but I had to battle for for every point. It was the closest 6-1, 6-3 match I have played (and the coldest). The match could easily have taken a different (and much less satisfactory) course had Andrew converted on of his break points when 2-1 up in the second set."  -- Simon

Player Comments:

  • Both sets started at 2-2 before we pulled away, and it was closer than the score suggests. I seem to remember saving lots of break points on my serve. We had some excellent rallies - Jack in particular dug out some very difficult returns! Well played all - very fun match - Alex

  • Jenny/Marco - can you check this is the correct score? I seem to remember the 1st set going to a tie-break but may be wrong?! Really enjoyed this match - both sets very close and some very enjoyable rallies. Jenny and Marco were both great at the net and had good doubles tactics. Well played! - Alex
