Luckily, my angles and lobs found the court more in the second set allowing me to build a lead. A nervy match tiebreak eventually swung my way.

Player Comments:

  • "When the first game of the match lasts about 15 minutes, you know you're in for a long, gruelling battle. Such was my match with Ewa, who it was a pleasure to meet and play against. Ewa possesses a good serve, was extremely good at moving me around. It was quite exhausting! Most of the games were tight, with several deuces narrowly edged out. I also didn't do myself any favours double faulting so many times. All in all, I am happy to have edged out the win, and expect it'll be an even closer match if we do play again. "  -- Ibrahim

Player Comments:

  • "Incredibly fun match with great rallies and shots from the both of us. My serve decided to be somewhat consistent today and it made up for all the unforced errors I was making. Jane played great as she really made me work for many points throughout the match. Fortunately, I was able to close it out right before it went completely dark. Many thanks to Jane and good luck in your remaining matches!"  -- Peace

Reveal CommentIbrahim Bolarinwa bt Jane Worsey (Sep 8) 6-2, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "It was lovely meeting and playing with Jane at Wandsworth Common. I had a bit of a slow start adjusting to the court and new balls, but was later able to find a bit of my range. Jane is really good at extending rallies, and pouncing on my 2nd serve. I made quite a few errors trying to aggressively close out points. The score line would have been closer if Jane didn’t make a few errors too due to the pace of my groundstrokes. I wish Jane all the best in her remaining matches."  -- Ibrahim
Reveal CommentIbrahim Bolarinwa bt James Toseland (Sep 6) 6-2, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Don’t be deceived by the score line, it was anything but straightforward against James, who was a very formidable opponent. I quickly realised it wasn’t going to be a walk in the park after getting broken in my first service game. James has a good serve, and good consistent groundstrokes. I had to adapt quickly, go for my shots more, while recognising when to rein it in a bit. The 2nd game in the 2nd set was crucial for momentum. I was 0-40 down on my serve, acutely aware that I’ve suffered early breaks in the 2nd set in some of my matches. After managing to claw my way back to winning the game, I was able to build on my aggressive returns and pacey shots to close out the match. All the best to James, I quite enjoyed playing against you."  -- Ibrahim

Player Comments:

  • "Incredibly competitive match that was decided on the thinnest of margins! The first set was a strong one for James as he stayed steady while I struggled for consistency. I was able to heat up in the second set and was able to take it after breaking in James' last service game of the set. The match tiebreak went all the way down to the wire! Several mini-breaks and long rallies resulted in me edging out a match that really could've gone either way. Thank you very much for the match James and I wish you the best in your future games!"  -- Peace

Player Comments:

  • "Nice meeting and playing with Tom! We used new balls, and it took some time to get my timing right because of how fast they were. The match was also made difficult by Tom, who’s a good hitter of the ball, and is quite good at returning. Ultimately, finding the balance between consistency and going for pace and placement helped me edge it. Hopefully we’ll play again. If it’s at KGP though I’ll have to spray myself with insecticide because of all the flies!"  -- Ibrahim

Player Comments:

  • "It was a good, fun match with Peace. The fact that we are both lefties made the matchup an interesting one. I probably spent the first set marvelling about how well Peace plays for someone who only started playing recently! Peace’s groundstrokes and movement were really good, and he made some of my service games a lot less straightforward than I would have liked. Ultimately being just a bit more consistent enabled me to edge both sets out. I wish him the best in the rest of his matches!"  -- Ibrahim
