Player Comments:

  • "Thanks for the game. Definitely caught Winston on an off day. The match was summed up on match point. We were trading balls when Winston hit a good approach shot and then came to the net to volley a ball, which dropped near the net. I sprinted forward to attempt a passing shot but managed to frame it instead, which then the shot somehow turned into a lob that sailed over Winston and sneaked in. Very bizarre!! Look forward to our next match."  -- Alan

Hugo has a super fast serve and super athletic so it was very tricky to play him. I managed to go into a 5-2 lead before Hugo hit another gear and pushing me into the corner. We had one deuce game lasting 15 minutes and luckily I won that and held my nerve to the take the first set. Second set started with holding serves with eventually Hugo being broken and I led 5-2. Knowing how tricky Hugo is to pass by, I luckily closed the set on my serve. Great playing you H and look forward to more playing in the future. Good luck with remaining games. "  -- Asad

The match took two days to finish and every point had to be earned. Lady luck was on my side and I managed to take the first set. On the second set, Keng, as American Football Player Marshawn Lynch would say, went into Beast Mode (a term referring to a player being unstoppable) and started leading the set - It felt impossible to win a point off of him. I had to crawl myself out of the hole and managed to level the score. Thankfully, lady luck stuck by my side and i managed to win the second set. Honestly it could have gone either way. Keng - thank you for the match. thanks jeff wan"  -- Jeffrey

Player Comments:

  • "I have been playing tennis in West Ham Park for the last 10 years and Reg is someone that I have admired from a distance as I have never played him but always used to watch his game and was in awe. So playing him for the first time was a nerve wracking experience as I knew that he was a complete game player and this was going to be a tough day. I had booked a court for three hours we ended up completing it in nearly 4 hours. The match started in a very fast fashion way, Where I took the lead in the first set and closed it quickly before Reg hit back hard and took the second set. Most rallies will be in counted at 20+. Luckily for me I scraped through in the final set. Thank you Reg for being an amazing opponent and it was my pleasure."  -- Asad

Alexei had promised he was going to do everything he could to come back and take the match in 2 sets, even sending me a link to the infamous match where Nadal did something like that. I told him he's not Nadal. Oh but did he try! With a flurry of big plays and a superb confidence Alexei took the game, winning 3 in a row until I managed to close it out at 6-3. But the drama didn't end there. As if one big comeback wasn't enough he saved two match points when I led 5-2, 40-15 in the final set and saved another in the tie break before I managed to step up and close this epic tie.

Reveal CommentDaniel Boulton bt MG Bouchard (Aug 30) 2-6, 6-3, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "A challenging and highly educational match on my part - Mathieu is able to get a very impressive amount of spin on his shots and serve, and I definitely struggled in the first set to deal with the unpredictable nature of his game. Fortunately managed to find a way to get balls back in more consistently as the match went on (particularly in the 3rd set, played at a later date on a less than ideal court) and was very pleased to get the win. Will hopefully set up an interesting end to the group also!" -- Daniel

Reveal CommentMG Bouchard bt Nicoleta Moise (Aug 27) 6-3, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Great hit with Nicoleta. Made me work super hard at times, especially when trying to close out the match! Definitely the most running so far. Match had a good mix of shots and was great to cover so much of the court to get to sneaky angle shots and short balls (not always successfully). Thanks again for the hit and best of luck for the rest of the round!"-- MG
Reveal CommentMG Bouchard bt Jack Gillions (Aug 24) 6-1, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Don't be deceived by the scoreline, this was a tough morning hit with Jack. We kicked things off with an 18-point game and ended with a 12-pointer -- 27% of the total points played were in first and last games! We were both struggling physically at times (got to love a 7am start time!), but there were still some great rallies and miraculous gets on both sides of the net. Jack also found time to audition for Bambi On Ice! Even the random spectator in the park during first set enjoyed the show. Jack saved 9/15 break points, of which six were set points and five were match points. Definitely had to dig deep to get it done. Thanks for the hit, Jack. Best of luck for the rest of the round. Hopefully we can hit again soon!"  -- MG

Reveal CommentMG Bouchard bt Thomas Mears-Alcaide (Aug 19) 6-2, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "A very fun hit to open the new round and lots of running. 11 of 18 games went to deuce and the less said about first serve in percentages and number of double faults for both of us the better. Admirable effort from Tom, who said he hasn't played in 10 years (mind games, perhaps?), but it was evident he's still fit enough to chase after the sweetest of drop shots and acute angled shots, although not quite enough in the penultimate game at 4-4 when he was done like a kipper three points in a row. A couple of bad service games at the wrong time didn't help his cause either, but he should get better later in the round. Thanks for the hit, Tom, welcome to the league, and I look forward to seeing what your attempt at revenge looks like!"  -- MG
