Player Comments:

  • "An absolute belter of a match on a hot summer's evening. I can't remember too much except there were some bloody close sets and some terrific tennis. Im not usually so gentlemanly but I had to applaud Max's forehands down the line on a number of occasions - fantastic. Max led early on and for a lot of the first set, but I somehow got back in and won the tie-break. Second set was close throughout and went to tie break which Max this time won. We decided to play a 3rd set match tie-break as we were both pretty shattered after 1hr 45 mins, which Max won. Look forward to the next one! "  -- Mark

  • "After winning the first 4 games Callum made a strong come back with powerful ground strokes, continuing into the 2nd set. After Calum led most of the 2nd set we ended up playing defensive tennis, and I managed to scrape the tie-break 2nd set. An enjoyable game in the sun played in good spirit!"  -- Mark

  • "This was probably one of my toughest wins ever. Fabio played much the better tennis and consistent too. He dominated the first set with strong ground strokes finding the corner on most shots. I focused on consistency and running the ball down, took the 2nd set and then pipped Fabio for the tie break. Shattered...just what was needed!"  -- Mark

Group Summary:

It was tight at the top of Group 4 with Linus and Stephen both recording 4 wins and earning 9 points. Sadly their head to head was unfinished so Linus was able to sneak top spot by the narrowest of margins, as one of Stephen's wins involved a match tiebreak in lieu of a third set. That was close!

The 2nd set had a number of long rallies, which I certainly felt after 90+ mins on court, but a few more of those close games just seemed to drop my way, and after 90+ mins on court I was pleased to hold on for a win in a really competitive match."  -- Mathew

Player Comments:

  • "I had a good time meeting and playing with Dimitris. He was a tough opponent, and the scoreline doesn’t show how close some of the games were. Dimitris is good at extending rallies, so I had to be aggressive with my groundstrokes, and this aggression served me well, till the match ended in retirement. I definitely hope to play and chat with him again soon!"  -- Ibrahim

Player Comments:

  • "It was nice meeting and playing with Tim at King George’s Park, the only negative being the gloomy weather brought about by Storm Evert. The score line hides how good a player, and particularly how good a returner Tim is! My serve was under threat in several games, and he did break me in the opening game of the 2nd set. He would have done it again if not for some good serving from me. Momentum on my serve and some good, pacey returns helped me win in the end. I hope to play with Tim again, as it was lovely chatting with a fellow tennis enthusiast!"  -- Ibrahim

Reveal CommentIbrahim Bolarinwa bt William Cutts (Jul 13) 6-1, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "It was a nice sunny evening to play at King George’s Park. While the score line would suggest a straightforward match, it was anything but, as there were several deuce games and break points I had to claw myself out of. William started to find his range more in the 2nd set, and broke early to go 2-0 up. It could have been a double break if I didn’t somehow save break points! The set turned at that point as I started to focus more on being consistent, and not going for winners every time. We played a practice 3rd set that was definitely less nervy and more free flowing for both of us. All in all it was quite nice meeting William. I wish him all the best in his remaining matches, and hope to play with him again some time."  -- Ibrahim

Reveal CommentIbrahim Bolarinwa bt Declan Keane (Jul 3) 6-2, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Declan and I played a good match with some good rallies today. I started a bit slow as I was getting accustomed to the courts, but started to find my range more, which ultimately helped me close out the 1st set. Unfortunately for me Declan started to find his as well as the 2nd set progressed. He was very good at keeping the ball in play, making me go for more pace on my shots, and drawing errors as a result. I was unable to hold serve in the latter stages as a result of this, but I managed to edge the game by making enough good returns on his serve. All in all a good, tough match! I wish Declan all the best in the rest of his matches!!"  -- Ibrahim
