Player Comments:

  • "It was a real tussle which could have gone either way, featuring long rallies and many momentum shifts. Eren's tricky and covers the court well, his accurate attacking lobs were winning him the majority of points whenever i got to the net so i needed to follow in only good approach shots which were proving difficult under the pressure of his good court coverage."  -- Rodney
