I pegged it back to 4-4 and then a few rare mistakes from Joao meant I could hold serve again and break to win 6-4. Joao, you hit some incredible winners again - I was very relieved to get the win. Until next time! 1-1 in the H2H. 19.06.22 - Great consistency from Joao as always. Too many unforced errors from me but I hung in there to take the 2nd set.

Player Comments:

  • "Thank you, Carlo, for a thoroughly enjoyable match to end the round! It was played on a humid evening, which made for a tough, draining encounter. I got off to a strong start and won the first couple of games. But things got closer as we settled into the match and it was nip and tuck and with few unforced errors until the last couple of games and the set went my way. The second set started in the same vein but fatigue and mistakes on both sides set in a little, and the rallies became both longer and more error strewn. A bit more consistency on my part, perhaps, was enough to see it go my way in the end. Thanks again, Carlo! "  -- Ralph

Player Comments:

  • "Thanks, Hamish, for a really fun match! Played on a surprisingly humid eveing, Hamish got off to a super-fast start, taking the first three games quickly and the first set not long after that. We were both having one of those days though when too many shots landed, frustratingly, in the net, but Hamish's more aggresive play paid off. With a little more consistency setting in though, the second set was a closer affair, with some fairly epic rallies, especially towards its end. It was then my good fortune that the lottery that is a match tiebreak went my way. A pleasure playing Hamish, as always, good luck with your remaining matches! "  -- Ralph

Player Comments:

  • "Played on a sunny, blue-skied Saturday morning, the heat of the day made itself felt still and proved more challenging than expected. And as always, Carolos was a tough opponent. Both of our serving was a little inconsistent at times, but that aside there were plenty of hard-fought, tactical rallies. The scoreline flattered me somewhat, given there were lots of deuce games. The initial games of both sets went my way which seemed to give me just enough momentum to see them through. "  -- Ralph

Player Comments:

  • "Played on a perfect summer's evening, this was a thoroughly enjoyable, highly competitive match that brought out the best of both our tennis. Lots of variety and the winners from both sides far outweighed the unforced errors. I had the better start to the first set, being 4-0 and 5-1 up, before Ahmed got his serve and forehand going and pegged the scoreline back; I was fortunate in the end to take the set. The second set was more of nip and tuck affair, the crucial game being a long, epic seventh one, which went my way and gave me a bit of momentum to close out the set.

Peter raced into a 3-0 lead playing a heady mix of big serving and returning together with some short low slices and fine volleying. I was grateful to get on the scoreboard, weather the storm and restore some respectability, Peter coming out on top 6-4. I then established an early lead in the second set and could sense the momentum shifting slightly in my favour. Peter wasn’t hitting so hard and was making more errors while I found a better more consistent rhythm and started to win a greater proportion of the longer rallies.

Despite playing reasonably in some tight exchanges, I found myself 0-3 down in the first set and facing a minor existential crisis. Mercifully my serve re-appeared to help me grab my first game and banish desperate thoughts of a championship tie-break escape. We both played steadily though Em’s serve not as reliable as mine today. I matched then overtook Emily before breaking her service game to clinch the set.

  • "Very enjoyable match played on a hot evening with the sun shining low across the court making conditions quite tricky. The score doesn’t reflect the closeness of the contest. After a good start I managed to hold on and take the first set but Rachel immediately responded to go 3-1 up in the second. She then made some errors at key moments which I was fortunately able to capitalise on to turn the set around, culminating in a long game on Rachel’s serve at 5-3 with many deuce points. Looking forward to a rematch."  -- Nick

Lots of epic rallies and challenging points and his serve was really starting to fire in what was a marathon second and he just edged the tiebreak to take the set. With a set each and due to a lack of time a champions tiebreak ensued…. I was thrilled to come out on top this time after losing it in three in the previous round! Thanks for a great match today Rich and best of luck with the rest of the round. D "  -- Don

Thank you so much and good luck with the rest of your matches."  -- Isobel
