Player Comments:

  • "This match followed the usual pattern - Andy out of the blocks, firing rockets at me, serving really well, and taking a good lead. I then woke up and clawed my way back and stole the first set. A more even second set which Andy deservedly won. In the final set, Andy once again took the early initiative and after going two games down, I managed to get my serve going and put pressure down the backhand finally forcing some errors which gave me heart with which to build on to take the set. As Andy Murray would say - A really tough match played in good spirit and lots to take away and work on. Thanks Andy"  -- Christopher

Player Comments:

  • "A great game, nearly two and three quarter hours to play 3 sets. Was close the whole way through, Danny is exceptionally quick around the court which makes it hard to close out points. Some very long drawn out rallies and games. Enjoyed it, thanks Danny."  -- Mark

Reveal CommentMark Green bt Arturs Reinis (Nov 4) 6-2, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "A great game with lots of long rallies. Artur has a solid all round game, strong forehand and a double handed backhand as sweet as you’ll find. Allied to his general fitness and pace all around the court it was difficult to close out points without hitting good angles. Great game Artur, hopefully hit again soon?"  -- Mark

Reveal CommentPeter Ferrett bt Howard Davies (Nov 10) 6-0, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "It was good to meet Howard for the first time. It was another match played on the all weather asphalt at Birkenhead Park after earlier rain; the still damp court making the balls stay low. We had quite a few long rallies on various points during the course of this match. Howard's placement of the ball improved as the match progressed and increasingly I found I had to move more to get to the ball. I had to concentrate as Howards rallying forehand was sometimes quite low over the net and rather tricky to play, so ended up trying to move him to one side then drive a forehand or backhand slice into the other corner. Howard was watching the ball well so I didn't get many cheap points just by adding sidespin which I sometimes get. Thanks Howard. "  -- Peter
Reveal CommentMax Liu bt DAX BALE (Nov 9) 6-3, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "A first set characterized by unforced errors and double faults. Neither of us got into any sort of rhythm – no-one held of serve for the first 6 games! The set was close with lots of deuces games. I thought we both played better in the second set. There were better rallies and we tried to move each other round the court a lot more. Thanks for the match Dax. "  -- Max

Reveal CommentPeter Ferrett bt DAX BALE (Nov 2) 6-2, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Another Parks League match played with Dax at Birkenhead Park after the day's earlier rain had ceased, this taking longer than a 6-2 6-2 score might imply, there were some long rallies and Dax was advantage point up several times on some of the games that he lost. Today a lot of the time I had to play a waiting game, just keeping rallies going while trying to move Dax around the court and then occasionally hitting a deeper slightly harder slice to try to win the point. Finishing points, from my view, was not that easy as most of the time as Dax stayed in rallies well and would place shots well if I gave him too bland a ball, though occasionally he may have tried to go for too hard a shot to finish things off. Thanks again for the match Dax."  -- Peter
