Just an update and catch up re the singles box league.
First, a report on our latest result (and what a match!)
Just before I went on my hols, Tom took on Colin in Division 2 and as I said, what a match it produced!
These two have history of course, and with their last meeting going right to the wire we should have expected nothing less this time and they did not disappoint. Colin set off like a house on fire and raced off into an early lead which Tom clawed back with some aplomb. Both players were now right into the match and playing some tough tennis. The games came and went until eventually Tom took the first set 7-5. The second set was equally tight and the tennis physical right until 4-4 when Tom had a point to take a 5-4 lead which Colin saved and then went on to break Tom’s serve! Colin then consolidated with a hold to take the match into a Champions Tie Break and it felt like deja vu!
Tom raced off into a 4-0 lead in the Breaker and it looked like the momentum may carry him through to the finish line, but Colin wasn’t finished yet and hit back to draw level and then forge ahead himself. Tom then hit back and the match was poised at 8-8 and was anybody’s. It was Colin though who got his nose in front for 9-8 and with his serve to come he went for a big first, and it paid off! Colin eventually winning 10-8 in the Champions Breaker. Well done to both players. That’s what the Box League’s can produce!!!
And on that subject, I’m awaiting some more results from you guys so get in touch with your opponents asap and get yourselves some serious singles in. There really is nothing like a tight singles to really get the tennis juices flowing!!
