It was tight at the top of Group 2 with John and Jon both winning 3 matches and finishing on 9 points, so the title came down to their head to head which John managed to win in 3 sets, "scraping past" Jon in the third set in some "very chilly conditions". Congrats to Jon for winning a "marathon encounter" against Matt though, a match with "really fine margins"... great tennis!

Group Summary:

Well done to all of you for getting lots of matches played before lockdown, and there were plenty of close scorelines too. Not surprisingly the winning margin was narrow with Greg clinching the title by a single point ahead of Joe. Greg was the only player to go undefeated with 5 match wins, although Peter took the opening set in their match in lashing rain proving again that Local Tennis Leagues players are a hardy bunch!
