  • "Really tough but enjoyable game with Alexandros. 3 contrasting sets in which the last set was nip and tuck.. where we both struggled to win our service games.. I managed to win my serve right at end at 6-5.. Match could have gone both ways this time in my favour.. looking forward to next time Alexandros.. hoping for less gruelling game please"  -- James

Reveal CommentJames Castelino bt Rob Gilham (Nov 19) 6-2, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Really enjoyable game with Rob. I was fortunate that this was Rob's first game in three years and he was definitely growing into the game with some of his shots. I can see future encounters being closer or a reverse once Rob starts playing more. Even todays game both sets could have swung both ways and were determined by decisive points in the middle of the set in my favour. Rob is a sporting gentleman as I took a tumble towards the end of the game where rather that hit a winner he caught the ball and made sure I was able to continue.. literally I hobbled over the finish line but looking forward to our next game. Good luck in next matches Rob."  -- James

Player Comments:

  • "At least there was no wind this time. A competitive game again with Adam. This time I managed to take big lead in both sets but still nerve racking as Adam never gives up any points. The difference today was mainly he made more unforced errors than me but the sets still could have swung as we had many deuce games. Good luck in next game Adam"  -- James
