Player Comments:

  • "First match of the year for Ryan and he played some steady tennis with a number of excellent winners. Unfortunately due to the lack of tennis this year lead to some unforced errors. I am confident this will be rectified with more court time."  -- James

Reveal CommentJames Rice bt Dylan Macvicar (Apr 26) 6-1, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Dylan is a powerful player with a very strong forehand and tremendous first serve. He made very good use of his height and power and kept me on the back foot for many of the rallies. Many of the games could have gone either way and I had to play my best defensive tennis on many an occasion. Some great rallies and clever shots. "  -- James
