Player Comments:

Reveal CommentDean Proctor bt James Castelino (Jul 21) 6-2, 4-6, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Hot but not impossible. Sun going down and getting a bit tricky to see some of the high balls. Great 2nd set with James getting everything back and me losing the ability to hit a winner. We had some exhausting baseline rallies most of which James won out of sheer doggedness and ability to stay in the point. He also played some fantastic lobs. I think that 2nd set took a lot out of us and although he didn't play badly in 3rd set, parts of my game came back. Exhausting.Thankfully it was only 3 sets. Well played, look forward to the rematch." -- Dean

Player Comments:

  • "Too hot for tennis. Hardly any breeze. Great to meet Stefan. It was rather one sided but good to play non the less. His first serve could be a very useful weapon if employed more often. Dean "  -- Dean

Reveal CommentDean Proctor bt David Barratt (Jul 15) 6-4, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Great to play against Dave. We had tried last week but had to postpone due to unfortunate circumstances early in the first set ( Dave was winning). This time the wind was a factor and it took a while to gauge the massive differences at each end. Enjoyed the game and look forward to playing again. "  -- Dean
Reveal CommentJonathan Clarke bt Stefan Lapworth (Jul 14) 6-1, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Thanks for the game Stefan. Pretty windy morning which made it hard to really get any rallies going properly. I think under different conditions the scoreline might have been quite different. Good to meet you and thanks for coming all the way over from Sandwich!"  -- Jonathan

Player Comments:

Reveal CommentGareth Williams bt Duncan Lewis (Jul 30) 6-2, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "A very windy afternoon but a very enjoyable match. The first game took 10 minutes to complete so we both were ready for a long match and some long rally’s and games did follow. I had to get my first serve in as Duncan was attacking my second. The wind got stronger and it put us both off our flow and I managed to get the win. The score doesn’t really show how close it was at times. Thanks Duncan I hope we can play again soon. "  -- Gareth
