Collapse AllWandsworth All Star Singles - Round 35 | Thursday 3 December 2020 to Wednesday 6 January 2021 (Midpoint: Wednesday 30 December 2020)

It's a shame this round had to end early due to lockdown but at least we managed to get past the midway point meaning that you'll all receive a 50% round pass discount for next time! Well done for braving the often wintry weather to get so many matches played and we look forward to seeing you back in action before too long!

Group Summary:

The early finish favoured those who got off to an early start so Brian was rewarded for his 6 match wins with the group title. Max's "monster serve" helped him secure runner up spot and take the first set off the champ, but Brian managed to "get a read on the serve" in the next 2 sets. Max's efforts were rewarded as he won a battling 3 setter against Simon though, his serve again coming to the rescue in the third set.

Final Rankings:

  1. Brian O'neill 6.2 [W6] 14 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Max Budny [W3, L2] 10 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP

Reveal CommentMark Roberts bt Luke Zakrzewski (Jan 3) 6-3, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "A very enjoyable game with some great ralies. Some great serving from Luke and incredible winning backhand volleys from my attempted lobs. Today my ground strokes were slightly more consistent and as Luke said he didn't quite get into his stride in time."  -- Mark
Reveal CommentSimon Gravatt bt Mark Roberts (Jan 2) 6-0, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "In a match between two ultra defensive players, I prevailed simply by keeping the ball in court during our long rallies one shot more than Mark. With hardly any outright winners, the match was decided on who made the least errors. Today, aided in no small part by the blinding Wandsworth sun, that was me. On another day it could easily be Mark."  -- Simon
Reveal CommentBrian O'neill bt Steffan Lloyd (Jan 2) 6-2, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "It was all going swimmingly for me until Steffan saved two match points in the second set and suddenly played much better and more consistent. I managed to survive the scare and clinch the second set... If he played like that for the whole match could have been a different game! Look forward to the next one. Cheers, Brian"  -- Brian
Reveal CommentMax Budny bt Steffan Lloyd (Dec 31) 7-6 (7-4), 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Lovely early start in the -1 degree weather! We both have very similar play styles so it made for a great match. In the first I managed to (accidentally) draw blood from both Steffan’s knees by sending him out wide on serves into the ice patches. It was a really tight first set with neither of us going more than a game ahead. I just clinched it in the tie break. In the second I pulled away to a 4-1 lead just hitting a bit more consistently than Steffan. I bottled a number of match points along the way but edged the 6-4 win. Really enjoyable game. Might have been a different story if Steffan had found his serve earlier in the match!"  -- Max
Reveal CommentSteffan Lloyd bt Alex Webb (Dec 30) 6-4, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "Alex is a solid player with a great forehand. We were both still pretty rusty from an indulgent Christmas. The 2nd set was better quality with some solid serving but I was just able to get ahead and take the match. Really enjoyable! "  -- Steffan

Player Comments:

  • "Really tough Match, score doesn't reflect how close the games were. Simon makes you play every point and capitalises on any short \ soft ball. We both managed to keep are calm with invaders from other courts. Hard fought game - good level of tennis throughout. "  -- Luke
Reveal CommentSimon Gravatt bt Fabio Franco (Dec 18) 6-4, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "The British weather versus Brazilian finesse: Sadly for Fabio, the cold, the wet and the wind of a Wandsworth December morning prevailed."  -- Simon
Reveal CommentBrian O'neill bt Max Budny (Dec 17) 4-6, 6-2, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Again, very tricky conditions with a slippery court and heavy, wet balls...not to mention blazing sun! Max has a monster serve and got an absolute tonne of free points first set. It went with serve, and just one break meant Max clinched the first. Second and third sets I began to get a read on the serve, whilst playing a tad more aggressive. Tough but fun game!"  -- Brian
Reveal CommentLuke Zakrzewski bt Alex Webb (Dec 15) 6-4, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • " High quality match, with hard fought rallies in both sets. Alex has a really good strategic game, mixing in slice, top spin and flat shots really well. Both broke each other serves in both sets, with an added variance of sun set making it hard to find rhythm on one side of the court. Really enjoyable match - with proper strategic rallies throughout. Thanks for a top game."  -- Luke
Reveal CommentBrian O'neill bt Eoin Haughton (Dec 15) 7-6 (7-4), 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Very close first set, with Eoin coming out all guns blazing! A real battle, that was made very tricky with a low winter sun scorching our retinas. Some great shots from Eoin - very difficult to know how to counter his ambidextrous style!"  -- Brian
Reveal CommentSteffan Lloyd bt Mark Roberts (Dec 15) 6-3, 7-6 (7-3)

Player Comments:

  • "2nd time playing Mark and another really good match. Mark’s a very hard player to break down with long rallies where you’re having to wait for a chance to attack or an unforced error. I managed to put away enough winners to get past him this time around. "  -- Steffan
Reveal CommentMax Budny bt Mark Roberts (Dec 14) 6-2, 0-6, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "Really interesting game! Lots of solid rallies & a range of shots being played. I got off to a good start in the first, hitting consistently. After that my weekend on the beers caught up with me and I was getting pretty gassed with Mark sending me all over the court. After losing about 9 games on the bounce, I got my head back in and brought it back to 4-5 in the third. After saving 2 match points the momentum swung my way and I managed to just edge the win. Really enjoyable monday morning, thanks Mark!"  -- Max
Reveal CommentBrian O'neill bt Fabio Franco (Dec 12) 6-2, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "I got off to the better start, despite some iffy serving on my part. Second set Fabio came out all guns blazing with much more aggressive tennis, along with a few more first serves. I had to claw my way back from 3-1 down and it got a bit nervy at 4-4. My extra match time post lockdown probably helped me in getting over the line. Enjoyed the match, cheers! "  -- Brian

Both of us become tight on our serves during tie break, lots of mini breaks and momentum shifts. I got a few lucky net cords to break the dead lock. Game was played in great spirit, really enjoyable points played throughout the match."  -- Luke
Reveal CommentBrian O'neill bt Mark Roberts (Dec 10) 6-1, 6-3

Reveal CommentMax Budny bt Simon Gravatt (Dec 8) 6-2, 6-7 (5-7), 7-6 (8-6)

Player Comments:

  • "Back to back days of 2 and a half hour matches for me! Remind me never to do that again. Such an whirlwind game. After winning the 1st set comfortably, I left a nice chunk of my knee on the court after falling over while sliding for a well-placed shot from Simon. It threw me off my game and in the 2nd set Simon capitalised well. In the 3rd, I couldn’t buy a forehand for love nor money while Simon stayed consistent. Luckily my serve got me out of an initial 0-3 hole to win the set. Thoroughly enjoyed it."  -- Max
Reveal CommentEoin Haughton bt Max Budny (Dec 7) 7-5, 4-6, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Very close, 2 hour+ marathon match. First 2 sets very close and few key points deciding the sets with most games going to Deuce. I managed to find a bit more consistency in the final set and edge the win. Thanks for the game! "  -- Eoin
Reveal CommentBrian O'neill bt Simon Gravatt (Dec 6) 6-4, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Good to be back playing tennis! Simon took an early lead in the first set, before I clawed back to 4-4 and then broke for 6-4. A few games where I got lucky with some iffy mishit returns swung momentum my way, and my shot confidence grew as the 2nd set progressed. Fun as always - hopefully no more interruptions to tennis and we can resume the rivalry in due course!"  -- Brian
Reveal CommentSteffan Lloyd bt Simon Gravatt (Dec 4) 6-1, 7-6 (7-2)

Player Comments:

  • "Great to get back on court after lockdown 2.0. The 2nd set was a lot more even and Simon came back much stronger. Competitive first match back! "  -- Steffan

Group Summary:

It was tight at the top of Group 2 as Tim and Ben both earned 12 points, but Tim recovered from a set down in their head to head to finish on 5 wins and take the title. Tim employed his slice to good effect again in a "battle of the slices" against Alexandre, a close match played against a backdrop of "every type of weather" the British winter had to offer!

Alejandro stormed to a 5-1 lead in the first, absolutely painting the lines, before I started to wake up and gain some momentum. Unfortunately when we resumed play for the third he took a nasty fall in the first game, so was effectively playing one-legged. Looking forward to playing again next round!" -- Ben

Group Summary:

Sadly just 3 matches were played in this group before lockdown struck, and there were wins for Elisabetta, Jamie and Johnny, so final standings came down to who lost the fewest sets and games in their match wins. Top spot therefore went to Elisabetta for her straight sets win over Enrico, while Jamie held his nerve in a second set tiebreak against Charlie to claim runner up spot.

Final Rankings:

Well 5-0 became 5-5 and thankfully I closed it out at 7-5 but Dimitris really made me work for it and he was unlucky to take it to a 3rd set!! Really enjoyed it buddy, best of luck with the rest of your matches"  -- Sonny

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.

Final Rankings:

  1. Brian O'neill & Amy Ilyine [W3] 8 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Kate Marsh & Danielle Price [W2, L1] 6 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP
  3. Angie Bland & Mary Foley [W2, L2] 6 includes 2 bonus points

Player Comments:

  • "Horrible weather once more for tennis! Thankfully Amy was lethal at the net (again!) and kept the points short in very wet conditions. A mix up of tactics paid some dividends in the second set by Kate & Danielle and we thought there might be a come back on the cards, but thankfully we served it out (at which point it stopped raining and the sun started to shine!!). Hopefully drier conditions next time! Thanks, Brian & Amy"  -- Brian
