Reveal CommentWinston Balfourth bt Muhammad Noor (Feb 8) 6-4, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "I look forward to playing Mo, just like Christmas. You never know what you're going to get but it's always a surprise. It's a great H2H with neither of us getting away from the other. Even Stevens now and long may our matches continue. Mo broke me in the first game of the first set and held serve to go two up. I knew I had to stick with him as once he gets away then it's nigh on impossible to catch him. Game 9 I managed to get in front and then break for the set. Today was my day but I know Mo and the next time will be just as competitive as all of our matches. Until our next eventful meeting I will just reflect on how great it is playing against Mo, win or lose. Kudos my friend."  -- Winston

Player Comments:

  • "What an enjoyable sportingly played match. It really could have gone either way. Both of us had to contend with blustery conditions and a slippery court. Alan started well and took the first set. I fought back to level the match. The final set every time there was a break there was an immediate break back. Finally in the 11th game I managed to break Alan and serve out for the match. I say serve out but there were multiple deuces until it finally finished. Thanks again Alan for a great match and we'll definitely play each other again."  -- Winston

Player Comments:

  • "A great match was played in cold windy conditions. Sebastian came with aggressive mindset, his skiddy first serves had Raj in troubled . He won 5 continuous games of the first set and easily won it 6-1 . In the second set his first serves deserted him and gave Raj a chance to make a come back in the match. Raj won 4 games in a row to win the set 6-2. Serve troubled Sebi again in the third set but it was a well fought set with multiple deuces Raj took it with 6-2 scoreline but it was tougher than the score suggests. Sebi has come a long way since I last played with him, he is a tricky customer got good first serve and developing spin second serve which was missing last time. "  -- Rajendra

Reveal CommentSebastian Ambrozie bt Ynda Jas (Jan 22) 6-1, 1-6, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "An epic rematch. This time, Sebastian started out strong and dominant, only dropping one game on the way to taking the first set. At the start of the second set, I made a big change-up, switching from cap to the classic headband. Perhaps the intimidation of this move precipitated a reversal of the first set: 6-1 to me. The deciding set was tight: after four games, we each had two games in the same set for the first time: 2-2. Sebastian pushed on to build a dangerous two-game lead, after which I nervously brought it back to 4-4, but Sebastian proved mentally tough in closing the final set out 6-4. Well played!"  -- Ynda

Player Comments:

  • "It felt a bit like who can beat the wind kind of game, where you need to adapt to constantly changing gusts, hitting wild directions to make the ball not being blown off the side of the court, or preparing for the ball to rapidly change its trajectory after a bounce just at the moment when you're all set and ready to hit it. But even with all that it was a very good and tense game: long rallies, plenty of winners and successful volleys from both sides. Definitely enjoyed it and am looking forward to a rematch!"  -- Vitalii

Reveal CommentMG Bouchard bt Donna Booth (Feb 8) 6-2, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "A great battle on a lovely, spring-like day at West Ham Park. A rusty start saw a 10-minute game with eight deuces to begin proceedings and no holds of serve through the first four games. We were both playing partially blind at one end because of the low sun, but there were still some well-constructed points and fun rallies throughout. Once I managed to hold serve from the good end of the court, I adapted my game to play to Donna's weaknesses and try to make her do most of the running while battling to survive a calf strain despite some of Donna's sneaky short shots requiring some net sprints. On another day, the scoreline could have been very different. Thanks for the hit, and best of luck with your remaining games."  -- MG
