Collapse AllWandsworth All Star Women's Singles - Round 8 | Thursday 18 April 2019 to Wednesday 12 June 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 15 May 2019)

Congratulations to everyone in this league for getting so many matches played - 100% in Group 2 which is brilliant! Lovely to see this league growing each time as we welcome the new faces as well as the returners and it looks like you've all enjoyed some great tennis this time around. It's lovely to read so many positive commentaries and competitive matches too - so many deuces, tie-breaks, 3-setters and matches played over several days. Plenty to fight for in the next round too, so sign up now!

Group Summary:

Great to see this new league continue to go from strength to strength with some super tennis played by everyone. Congratulations to newcomer Nicole who stormed to victory in her first LTL league with 4 wins and bonus points. She was closely shadowed by Weronika, who also had 4 wins and bonus points but lost their head-to-head match. Good to see that our famous third opponent, the weather, also played its part with rain delays and wind providing tricky situations for some, although offering glorious sunshine for others, which makes a change! Maria and Weronika had a great match with lots of deuces and long rallies leaving them both out of breath, and a similar situation for Weronika and Natalia - looks like Weronika is our deuce queen! We look forward to seeing all of you again in the next round for more fun!

Player Comments:

  • "We played this match on a warm but very windy afternoon. The wind was changing direction of the ball and it made the match tricky and interesting. When we were not playing the wind;) we had some great rallies, Camilla was hitting nice winners from her forehand. The first set was very close, lots of games with few duces, lots of breaks of serve. the second one although quicker, really fun and with really interesting rallies:) Thanks for playing Camilla!"  -- Weronika

Group Summary:

Congratulations to everyone in Group 2 for getting ALL matches played - this is a great achievement, no wonder so many of you also picked up bonus points! Welcome also to our newcomers Philippa and Laura. Looks like you both had some great matches in your first round; well played. Congratulations to Marilena for taking the top spot this time with 4 wins, and Jane in a close second with 3. We wonder if this would have been even closer if they'd been able to complete their head-to-head? Certainly a match to look out for next time!
