Collapse AllWestway Singles - Round 46 | Thursday 24 September 2020 to Wednesday 4 November 2020 (Midpoint: Wednesday 21 October 2020)

A real shame we had to end the round 2 weeks early due to lockdown but the top 2 groups in particular were well contested nonetheless. It was great to welcome 7 new players to the league and it was a great effort all round, so we're looking forward to getting going again soon!

Group Summary:

It paid to get off the mark early in this round with the early finish for lockdown, and so Herve's 6 wins and midway bonus points left him as the clear winner, a full 11 points clear of runner up Jose. Jose took the champ to 3 sets though and forced him to "dig deep" on a few occasions before getting "a bit lucky" at the end to clinch the win.

Final Rankings:

  1. Herve Lagadec 7.2 [W6, UF1] 15 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Jose Godoy [W1, L1, UF1] 4 RUNNER UP
  3. Jake Meskell [W1, L2] 4

Player Comments:

  • "Another long game against Jose. Jose made fewer errors in the second set to have a well deserved 4-1 lead and had to dig deep to come back to 5-4 but I couldn't close the game and Jose took the opportunity to take the lead game and close the second set the second time we met. We played the 3rd set in a rush pace leading to some mistake, however there was good volleys at the net from each of us, and I got a bit lucky at the end to clinch the victory in the last two points. A rematch should be well deserved!"  -- Herve

Player Comments:

  • "The score does reflect a tight game. Had to recover from a 4-1 deficit to get the first set in the last few points. The second set was a close race all the way through with lots of points decided at the net as Johannes was putting a lot of pressure from there. Again it was decided only during the last few points. Very entertaining game!"  -- Herve

Group Summary:

It was a successful return to league action for Gabriel and Giulio as the pair took the top spots in a quiet group. It's shame the round had to finish early as you lost a couple of weekends to finish your matches in. Credit to Patrick for making Gabriel work hard in the second set before eventually winning it [9-7] in the second set tiebreak.
