Ryan HattyMatch of the week

This week’s match of the week goes to Ryan Hatty (pictured) vs Tanya Louise in our Melbourne Inner City Tennis League.

A brilliant match, played over 3 sets, with Ryan, come from the brink of defeat not once, but twice, digging in and eventually, coming out on top 5-7, 6-4, 1-0 (8-6).

“It was a very even match with plenty of momentum swings. After being up a break early in the first set by the end of it Tanya had all the answers and played well to take the first set 7-5. She continued on in the 2nd set and before I knew it I was 0-4 down and in big trouble but I was lucky enough to come back and take the 2nd set 6-4. Again I was in trouble with Tanya leading 6-2 in tiebreaker and once again I was lucky to get out of it and managed to win 8-6. Really enjoyed the match, lots of great rallies, thanks for the match Tanya!Ryan

And finally..

Some great match notes that highlight the Oz Tennis Leagues spirit 🙂

“A very exciting and enjoyable match (vs Taylor)! Great rallies and much more of a fight than what the score suggests. It took 12-15 deuces to settle the 8th game of the first set. I was serving at 3-4, and I guess we both knew this was the game that would decide at least the set, if not the entire match. In the end, I managed to take the game and maintain the momentum long enough to win the set and the match.” Renate Smitham, Adelaide Tennis League

“Wow, toughest natch so far. Glad to have had this match with Manish. The score doesn’t really reflect the details of the whole game because Manish really dominated the game with lots of winners. And Manish’s slice backhand was so deadly. Eventually pivotal points went my way and a lucky night for me with lots of first serves going my way. I think I will play more rounds with Manish outside the comp setting since we had much fun and quite a work out.” Paul Kang, Sydney Parramatta Tennis League

“We had an epic match which went right down to the wire. Mirjana was a fierce competitor and great fun to play against” Elder Scouller, Melbourne Inner City Tennis League
