Player Comments:

  • "Kristen and John raced into 3-0 lead before it became an entertaining and competitive match, consisting of endless deuce points in the searing Wimbledon Park heat. A close match that could have gone either way, with more deuce games than we care to remember, that thankfully ended before anyone got heatstroke (and we'd all run out of water). Thanks to Kristen and John for a fun morning tennis match. "  -- Michael
