Collapse AllWandsworth All Star Singles - Round 32 | Thursday 28 May 2020 to Wednesday 22 July 2020 (Midpoint: Wednesday 24 June 2020)

It was fantastic to have 14 groups in Wandsworth All Star League this time meaning lots of new faces as well as a welcome return of many of our regulars! It seems you were all keen to bring friendly, competitive tennis back to the courts of Wandsworth after lockdown which was great to see, with nearly 75% of all possible matches played. Great work and we hope to see you back on court in the next round!

Group Summary:

It was a successful return to League action for Ozan who topped the group with 6 wins, however the standout match saw runner up Brian fend off determined opposition from James in 3 tiebreak-ending sets. Brian's ace at match point down in the third set tiebreak helped him across the finish line, what a contest... and we look forward to the re-match next round! There was scorching heat and slippery courts to contend with in other matches so good commitment across the board!

  2. Brian O'neill 6.2 [W4, L3] 10 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP

I was keen to avenge my defeat to James last time out but this was a serious arm wrestle with neither of us able to take control of the match. I saved a match point at 8-9 in third set breaker with my one and only ace of the match... I was pretty proud of that one!

Group Summary:

It was Yannick's first time playing in Wandsworth All Star league and he adapted well with 6 wins out of 6 to top the group 3 points clear of runner up Jack. Yannick had to come from a set down to beat Jack in a match with "some very long rallies and some wonderful defensive shots from Jack". Yannick was very nearly taken to a third set by Thomas who played well on his return to tennis from a one year break... not to mention the rustiness we've all been feeling from lockdown!

Group Summary:

A tie at the top with Fabio and James both winning 5 matches and earning midway bonus points to finish on 12 points apiece and sadly no head-to-head to separate them... so the eventual winner was determined by who conceded the fewest sets, in this case Fabio! It goes to show that every set counts... and winning in 2 sets can help you over the line! Thomas recorded a nailbiting win over third placed Andrew by edging the final set tiebreak, and commiserations to Duncan who played 6 matches without reward (although he did earn himself midway bonus points)!

Group Summary:

It was tight at the top of Group 4 with Serge, Max and Dario each finishing with 4 wins however Serge edged clear by one point (earned by picking up a point for taking the first set in his retirement against Dario). The head-to-head between Max and Dario was "a very tight game with lots of good rallies" while Serge's match against Max "could have easily gone either way". A highlight has to be Serge's match against Garrod played on 2 different surfaces... quite a rarity in the Leagues!

Group Summary:

Congratulations to Nick for retaining his group title with 6 wins and a 2 point cushion over runner up Stephen who made him work hard in their head-to-head. Nick showed his fighting spirit again in a close 3 setter against Darelle which was "nip and tuck", while Stephen and Keith have the honour of playing out the longest tiebreak which went to 10-8 in the first set. The longest match was probably Ben versus Charlie played over 2 days!

Group Summary:

Sammy made an impressive debut in the League with 6 wins out of 6 including a gutsy 3 setter against runner up Enrico "on a wet court in tricky conditions". Sammy had to dig deep to win in 3 sets against Christopher too while Christopher won a tight match of his own against James, also in 3 sets. Francois and Christopher completed their match at a later date due to "so many deuces"... and that's not to mention James' "absolute marathon of a match" against Francois. Great effort everyone!

Daniel gave Matthew a good run for his money too in a "very close hard fought match" while Cornelia (Conny) has to be the unluckiest player in the group having being on the losing side in 3 close matches including an epic 3 setter against Andrei!

  • "A hugely intense match right from the go. I could barely return Josh’s first serves in the first game and vice versa but when worked out each other’s serves, the point became a lot more interesting with us trading a variety of shots and tactics. I got lucky with a break of serve in the first set, lost the momentum for the second set but came back from 2-5 down in the third to level it, only to lose in the tie break. It was a well-deserved win for Josh - great closing match for me for the round! Thanks again for a fantastic match Josh!"  -- Jenny

Collapse AllWandsworth All Star Doubles - Round 16 | Thursday 30 January 2020 to Wednesday 8 April 2020 (Midpoint: Wednesday 4 March 2020)

Lots of good matches and generous in this very active group and a real shame to have to stop before the end. Here's to the next one, whenever that may be!

Group Summary:

Brian is playing in the doubles with Amy for the first time and being 'lethal' at the net made her a great choice of partner. Her volleys and Brian's great all round game lobbed them to the top of this group with 3 wins in 3 matches. Well played! Kate and Danielle led the chasing pack and finished as runners up, and there was a 'great match' between Laura & Anne v Jordan and Nina and a close one between Angie and Mary and the same opponents. We also like the sound of Jenny's 'speedy serve and dastardly slice'! Well played all.
