Player Comments:

  • "A fun match, Robyn and Delali played with a smile on their faces regardless of the score. Very topsy turvy, after cruising the first set, Tim and Kasia relaxed maybe too much and were 0-4 down in the second set. A major and very worrying wobble. Fortunately we recovered to win it but they gave us a real scare and made the match much more enjoyable. "  -- Tim

Player Comments:

  • "An action packed match played in arctic conditions however we all warmed up pretty quickly thanks to a fast-paced first set that had lots of hard fought points and challenging rallies… it really could have gone either way, we were lucky to get the break at 6-5 avoiding the tiebreaker that looked like we were heading to. Winning the first set gave us the confidence boost we needed and we managed to gain the upper hand in the second and held our nerve to take the match. Well played Masumi & Yo and thank you for an enjoyable evening of tennis! D&J "  -- Don

Many long deuces, one break each, and a tie break, where we just managed to recover from a mini break down. A thoroughly enjoyable match that has all the doubles elements, thanks Alex and Alex "  -- Yo

Player Comments:

  • "A very windy day with low sunshine so quite difficult playing conditions with balls flying onto our court from other courts and our balls flying out of the courts altogether. The first set was really close with many games going to deuce and an equally close tie break. The second set we found our rhythm . Thanks Yo and Masumi for a fun start to this round and good luck with your other matches "  -- Kate
