Collapse AllWandsworth All Star Singles - Round 18 | Thursday 16 March 2017 to Wednesday 10 May 2017 (Midpoint: Wednesday 12 April 2017)

Thanks to everyone who got involved in this round, although turnout was mixed amongst the groups we still hit over a hundred matches played which is a good number. Congratulations to the new group champions and we hope to see you all next time for more matches in the warmer weather!

Group Summary:

A shame not to see more matches played in a quiet group one, particularly as those that were contested were very competitive affairs. Good scheduling made all the difference at the top of the table in this round. Tom, Andres and Jochen all recorded two wins each but crucially Tom bagged his bonus points too, to move into the lead. Andres and Jochen also miss out on the silver, as Stuart's battling performances and organisational skills give him the points boost he needs to take second.

Final Rankings:

  1. Tom Edwards 8.1 [W2, L2] 8 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Stuart Lawrence 8.1 [W1, L3] 6 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP

  • "Another tough match with long rallies against Tom. Came back from 1-4 in the first set which gave me some confidence for the tie brake. He recovered well for the second one and brake my serve twice. I started braking his serve in the definitive one and managed to go through quicker than in the other two. Thanks Tom for another good match like always. Andres"  -- Andres

Player Comments:

  • "I felt more comfortable than Jochen in a new slow re surface court at Tooting. He didn't manage to finish his aggressive passing shots to win games on serve. Very flat aggressive and fun tennis from both sides though. Thanks"  -- Andres

Group Summary:

Edward's rise up the ranks continues, as he finishes four wins to the good to take home his second title on the bounce . Paul once again gave Edward a run for his money and Tim joined in on the act too as both of their head to heads went the distance. Tim pips Paul to the runner up spot thanks to his additional bonus points - getting matches set up early really does pay off!

Group Summary:

Lots of closely contested matches in a very committed group three. Alex fought his way past the competition to chalk up a magnificent seven wins and with bonus points in the bag too he takes the prize in style. Andrea pushed Alex to the max in their epic head to head but couldn't quite prevail, however this excellent form saw him secure second place with a fantastic five victories. Hats off to Joseph too for getting all his matches in.

Player Comments:

  • "Epic match! I stormed to a 5-1 lead in the 1st set but, even though I held on to win it, I knew Andrea was coming back strong. Andrea is a very good player and, to be honest, technically much better than me - and he went on to dominate the 2nd set to set up a decider. The 3rd set however was a real battle and great tennis! I fought back again and got back into the rallies. Pretty much every game went to deuce and, with fading light, I didn't think we'd finish in time. We had a really great rally around 2-2 which upped both our games, and made for some good tennis. So many break points for both players. I was serving for the match at 5-4 but was 15-40 down so it really could have gone either way. A very enjoyable game "  -- Alex

Lots of breaks of serves, long deuces and momentum swinging back and forth. I won a crucial few points at 4-5 down and then pushed hard to close the match out. Charlie rarely misses a thing and has a powerful shot in him, going for the lines. Fortunately I was able to stay in the rallies but it took a great deal of effort! Well played Charlie."  -- Alex
Reveal CommentAlex Beaumont bt Joseph Harker (Mar 27) 6-2, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Joseph can count himself unlucky not to have picked up at least a point here, after a very tight second set that could have gone either way. In fact, Joseph had the chance to put away a winner to have taken the set to 5-4 for the chance to serve for the set, at a time he was serving very well - fortunately for me, he hit the ball out and I won the game in deuce. A shame in some ways as a third set would have been very interesting! It got a bit nervy/safe towards the end of the 2nd set but we had some good rallies and Joseph massively stepped up his serve and general play (changing tactics) to make this a great match!

Group Summary:

John showed no signs of nerves on his debut with five straight victories moving him ahead of the rest into top spot.

This win for Brice kept his momentum going and he finishes unbeaten with six wins to his name to take the crown.

Group Summary:

We could have done with a few more matches being played in this group, but as it is Sandy, Liz and Pamela all finish with two wins to their name to tie on four points apiece.

Collapse AllWandsworth All Star Doubles - Round 7 | Thursday 9 February 2017 to Wednesday 19 April 2017 (Midpoint: Wednesday 15 March 2017)

Great to get the doubles league in Wandsworth back underway in 2017. Thanks for all your efforts, we appreciate it's tricky to find times when four people are available but there was a good percentage of matches played this time round. We hope to see you next time for more matches in the summer months!

Group Summary:

James and Luke finish three wins to the good to improve on their runner up position from the previous round. This was no easy feat though with Philip & Paul and Richard & Alex putting up strong challenges. Philip & Paul edge into second thanks to the crucial point they earned in their unfinished marathon match against Adam & Chris.
