Another enjoyable and friendly game against Sam. It was only the second time Sam had played since the local lockdown. However that meant he generally went for his shots less and played a bit more consistently than in our match last year, so it was actually a more enjoyable match with some good rallies. As with many of these matches, this one was all about just one or two points here and there. After being 9-6 up in the tie break on serve, losing the next point, and double-faulting the next, I was very pleased to get over the line on the final point after one of the best rallies of the match. Thanks Sam, and all the best for your other matches.

I don´t think either of us was feeling massively keen to play tennis on a not very inspiring day weather-wise, but it was enjoyable to run around the court in the end! I feel like Cat let me off a bit lightly today as she took a bit of time to get going, and I raced into a 3-0 lead before she got into her groove. She nearly came back to 3-2, but I managed to get over the line for 4-1 in the first set after a bit of a tussle in the 5th game. With Cat serving 1st in the 2nd set, she took an early lead, but I managed to keep my concentration - even when a seagull tried to poop on me from above(!) - and pull ahead to finish off the match in 2 sets. Thanks for the match Cat; I think this is going to be a tough box, so all the best in your other matches :-)
