Back to the box league! and amid all the recent rain, today we had lovely conditions, no rain, no sun, no wind, but therefore no excuses! First set was deuce heavy including a marathon third game which seemed destined to never end as missed opportunity followed missed opportunity for both of us. Eventually it fell my way, and that consolidated break kept me just ahead, though every following game went to deuce too. Second set was somehow absent of any deuces but the games were still close fought but again I just managed to edge the key games. It was a good game, cheers Graham and best of luck in your other games.

Having initially ill-advisedly planned our match for 11am on a saturday, we weren´t much smarter in deciding to re-arrange for 5pm on a tuesday evening, as I completely forgot how busy the courts are even in October! However once we got under way Jon and I had a good game, me having dusted the box league cobwebs on the previous Saturday helped me in the first set, and I was able to start faster in set two, but at 1-4 down Jon fought back really strongly, hitting some great winners, and I was more than a little anxious in trying to stay ahead, losing one break back as Jon´s tennis shot up a level, and at 5-4 I was thanking a lucky netcord from a volley to put me 30-0 up that helped me creep over the line. Had we gone to a tie-break it would have been anyone´s guess which way it would have gone. Good luck in your other games Jon.
