"Very friendly and comeptitive at the same time! Always a pleasure",

Herve Lagadec

"Just a quick note to thank you for organising these leagues - they are a lot of fun and you guys do a great job,"

Saverio Grazioli-Venier

"​I had a blast being part of the league. This was my first experience with playing tennis through the Winter. Back home I only played recreationally with friends during the summer. So this was a treat for me. Really appreciate that I was able to get in touch with so many other players. You made playing so available for me,"

Philip Furgiuele

"​I must be one of your oldest players at 73 and the court seems to be getting bigger with every year that passes.  These young lads hit the ball too hard and run for ever.  Still the leagues are great fun.  Where else could I play a Frenchman, an Australian and a Latvian in the space of a couple of weeks?  I have claimed my bonus prize!"

Collapse AllWestway Singles - Round 37 | Thursday 19 April 2018 to Wednesday 13 June 2018 (Midpoint: Wednesday 16 May 2018)

The Westway enjoyed a great round with lots of effort put in to organise matches - almost two thirds of all possible matches being played. We know it is not always that easy to get courts at the Westway, so well done. Thank you for the support of the league and thanks too to everyone who supported the Westway and the local community in its commemoration of the Grenfell tragedy. All that tennis is a reminder that life goes on, but none of us will forget the devastating events of a year ago.

Group Summary:

The battle for the top spot was as close as it gets between Ben and Flavio who finished with the same points tally. We had to look to their head to head match to determine the group standings andafter what looked to be an epic three setter where Ben came back from losing the first set, Ben claimed first place of the group in his debut round. That means Flavio secures the silver position in his comeback round. Congratulations both! A special mention to Kashef, Marcus and Flavio who all earned their bonus points. Everyone made a brilliant effort to play their matches so well done to all!

Final Rankings:

  1. Ben Carey [W6] 12 WINNER
  2. Flavio Taffoni 7.2 [W4, L2] 12 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP

Reveal CommentKashef Reid-Bashir bt Bulent Isik (May 15) 6-1, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "A match where Kash served much better than the previous Westway league matches and as a result dropped very few service games. Kash found returning the Isik slice serve was a challenge in the second set but otherwise, this was a relatively comfortable win. Isik improved as the match drew to its conclusion," -- Kash
Ben Carey bt Marcus Williams (May 15) 7-5, 6-4
Reveal CommentMarcus Williams bt Kashef Reid-Bashir (May 11) 6-2, 7-6 (7-2)

Player Comments:

  • "After the last Westway league encounter, this match was light relief. Once again, Kash really struggled with returning the Marcus first serve in the first set (around 90 mph) and the serve-volley was still concerning. However, the baseline exchanges were much more even with neither player taking much risk on the serve or groundstrokes. Both the Kash and Marcus second serve was weak but there were very few double faults. Overall, the result was a fair reflection of the match. I will look forward to playing Marcus again at some stage soon,"-- Kash
Reveal CommentFlavio Taffoni bt Kashef Reid-Bashir (May 8) 6-0, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "After returning to singles competition after some time, Kash really struggled on the return of serve and the serve volley. Flavio’s serve was on point and he placed the ball well throughout the match, generating pace at appropriate points in key exchanges. Kash’s second serve was weak with a number of double faults. Overall, it was a frustrating match from Kash’s perspective but congratulations must go to Flavio on a convincing 6-0, 6-2 win. It was decisive and well deserved." Kash

Wish him good recovery till the next encounter."  -- Herve

Group Summary:

This round saw Roddy racing into the lead with 3 wins from his 5 matches as well as being the only player to earn his bonus points. This meant that he secured back to back titles so well done on a superb round! The battle for second place was as close as it gets since Thomas and Anthony finished on the same number of points so we had to look to their head to head to determine second place. In a three set match and Thomas' debut round, Thomas beat Anthony to claim that runner up spot; congratulations! We warmly welcome back Mark after his break from the leagues who played 3 of his matches - we hope you enjoyed them.
