Collapse AllWaterlow Park Singles - Round 33 | Thursday 30 January 2020 to Wednesday 8 April 2020 (Midpoint: Wednesday 26 February 2020)

Some groups were busier than others in this round but it was the cold time of year and of course the round ended early. Here's hoping for a cracking round when we can start playing again and if you are struggling to play or to hear back from anyone another time, please let us know and we will help if we can.

Group Summary:

With just over two weeks to go when this round had to be cut short, Mark was winning, Eric had yet to start and Daniel had beaten Mark. Alas, we will never know what happened had the round been able to continue but as it is, Mark wins!

Final Rankings:

  1. Mark Przyrembel 8.1 [W3, L1] 8 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Daniel Petersen [W3] 6 RUNNER UP
  3. Kevin Matthews 10.1 [W2, L1] 6 includes 2 bonus points

Group Summary:

As Jamie said when he played Arina, 'It’s been a very open group and after failing to serve for several sets (and a match), happy to finish with a win. Hoping to play everyone again in the next round, it’s been great having such an even group." Wehen it was cut short, Robert was in pole position, and wins the group. So it is congrats to him and commiserations to Liu Lee who was just two pints behind and beat the champ!

Player Comments:

  • "A great game with Frederico... I fully expected him to win comfortably. Looking for weak points in his play at the start of the match I couldn't see any! But with a bit of luck, trying to reduce errors especially in serving by keeping it simple, focusing on following through & trying to keep calm managed to get a good result which was especially rewarding after being 4-2 down in the final set."  -- Robert
