Player Comments:

  • "In a tennis showdown that played out like a Hollywood blockbuster, Adam delivered James Bond-worthy serves that left Luke and Emy shaken, not stirred. Alice's forehand was as hot as a red carpet debut, whilst Luke's backhand was as cold as a Bond villain's heart. Emy's volleys had more twists and turns than a Fleming espionage mission. When the final score was tallied, it was Luke and Emy who took home the victory, proving that even in the world of tennis, plot twists can be as unpredictable as a spy thriller"  -- Luke

Reveal CommentMandy Furstenberg & Alison Berresford bt Katie Roberts & Matthew Rowland (Sep 22) 6-3, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "With the first chill of winter in the night air, two solid teams came to fight an epic battle on a soggy carpet court. Matt used his vast carpet experience to slice, blinding serves to the opposition, who had little chance of returning them. Katie leveraged her paddle board skills to tip returns into the doubles channels - making Ali look like chopped liver. Mandy was Mandy - solid and consistent, forcing long baseline rallies that she triumphed in. Ali managed to get her serve in, which helped to seal their win. It was just a fun crisp evening to be out playing - forging new friendships over our love for all things athleisure wear and northern America. Thank you for the game! "  -- Alison
Reveal CommentLuke Bryant & Emy Lun bt Mandy Furstenberg & Alison Berresford (Sep 12) 6-2, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Ah, rain delays – the unscheduled intermissions where tennis players turn into meteorologists. Finally, we could commence our dramatic exchanges and nail-biting rallies, proving that tennis can be as exhilarating as a theme-park rollercoaster. Emy's forehands were so precise they could have pinned a tail on a donkey blindfolded, while Luke volleyed with all the finesse of a caffeinated squirrel on roller skates. Mandy scampered around the court like a hyperactive border collie herding tennis balls, while Ali seemed to mistake the game for a lob-a-thon, sending balls soaring into orbit. Looking forward to playing again, preferably when the rain has better things to do!"  -- Luke
Reveal CommentMandy Furstenberg & Alison Berresford bt Adam Costello & Alice Banbury Morgan (Sep 9) 6-4, 7-6 (7-5)

Player Comments:

  • "The heat was immense - so much so we felt the camaraderie with our fellow players in Flushing Meadows. The first set started strongly for Mandy/Ali with a 3-1 lead, but then Adam and Alice fought back to within a 1 game deficit. Ninja Mandy struck again though - finishing the set with a solid service game. The second set was also closely contended - with Adam and Alice taking an early lead. Desperate not to have to play a third set in the heat and have someone die, Mandy and Ali found another gear, levelling it at 6-6. The tie break was nail biting with lots of great retrievals and shots that hit the line. All in all - a really fun game, and a miracle that we survived without getting heat stroke!"  -- Alison
