Player Comments:

  • "What a match! 1st set was very even, both of us holding our serves apart from when I managed to break Elliot’s. 2nd set Elliot started playing amazingly well, and broke my first few service games racing to a 4-1 lead before I managed to come back at him. Some of his shots were sensational. Props for the tweener! Thanks mate"  -- Thomas

We are looking for a time to finish either it is the last game of mine or it is his amazing fighting back story after this break period which gives him long enough time to receive some additional training ;)) "  -- Liu

Player Comments:

  • "Good match, intensive in the first set where I more luck than Rob. Second set I managed to break two games and hold my own and used that momentum to secure the second set. It was Rob's second day of tennis in scorching heat and had he been anywhere near his usual performance, it would have been a very different result. Overall very enjoyable match with mixed shots and some pretty challenging rallies, looking forward to our re-match in near future. Thanks Rob!"  -- Lukasz

Reveal CommentAdrian Pottier bt Ed Blunt (Jul 26) 6-4, 3-6, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Well, this was another mother of a match, even tougher than our previous encounter. Pretty level in the first set, multiple breaks, but neither player really in control or running away with it. 2nd Set - Ed ran away with it. Started to unleash some stinging returns of serve, earning him a double break, I think I got one back but he had enough to close it out. 3rd Set - Like last time, Ed jumps into a 3-0 lead, only to be reigned in, game by game to 3-3. Match stopped at deuce, have the feeling he may have won it if we could have played to completion on the night. Can't wait to complete the trilogy." -- Adrian
Reveal CommentAdrian Pottier bt Ben Diamond (Jul 24) 6-3, 2-6, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "The Ben Diamond arrived, confident that he would impose his stifling game of slice and dice onto another opponent. SO confident in fact that he literally appeared to be asleep during the 1st set. Anyway, 1st Set - Ben holds for 3-2 after some early breaks, but somehow I counter slice him and then throw in an underarm serve as payback for his dropshots. 2nd set - The Diamond slice cuts me up. Bad. Ultra short, spinning returns of serve sap my spirit and I resort to hitting balls at Ben during changeover. 3rd Set-Feared the worst after suffering thru a world class exhibition of slice, but somehow found a way to win the Battle of the Bantz." -- Adrian

Reveal CommentAdrian Pottier bt Genoveffa Pagano (Jul 14) 6-2, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Thanks Gen, was kind of crazy to need to come back for a single game to finish the match off - a consequence of a stubborn 12 minute, multi-multi-multi deuce service game of mine chewing up our hour. Some lovely rallies, deft dropshots - and even a few volleys in there as well, so a great match for both of us develop our respective repertoires. Awesome to play so early in the morning with the sun in our eyes - that 8am slot is the tops. Take it easy, good luck in the forthcoming rounds. Cheers." -- Adrian
