Player Comments:

  • "Another epic battle with my regular playing partner Tom. Tom's serve and backhand slice were bang on form today which made it difficult for me to find too much rhythm on my baseline game. The match swung one way and then the other and was extremely competitive. As always a really challenging match whenever we play each other. Well played today Tom and i look forward to our next battle next week!!"  -- Chris

Reveal CommentChris Moran bt Veronica Broughton-Shaw (Sep 21) 6-0, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "A really enjoyable match with Veronica and the playing styles suited us both as we both like to drive through the ball from the baseline. The score line does not really reflect the competitiveness of the match and we had some really good rallies and Veronica served and volleyed well and most notably returned very well on my serve hitting some stunning service return winners. We had lots of good chat as well and i enjoyed playing on the courts at Romsey in what were very nice surroundings. Veronica and I have agreed to play again at some point. Well played Veronica and thank you for the game!!"  -- Chris
