Match(es) of the week
So many close three set matches, we couldn’t give our match of the week to just one, so we picked three!
First up, Ethan Lim vs Chris Parks in our Brisbane Tennis League. Ethan coming out on top 6-4, 5-7, 1-0 (10-6). Ethan climbing the table and getting himself in the mix for a grand final place.
“Enjoyable match was close and Chris was getting more consistent as the match went on. Great sportsmanship too.” Ethan
Second up Paul Kang (pictured) beating Yusuf in our Sydney Parramatta Tennis League. Paul losing the first set 2-6, but battled on to take the second 7-6 and closed out the third set champions tie-break 10-4.
“Rollercoaster of a match. Yusuf really went for his shots and it was very difficult to counter them. My game was really under par today, but somehow was able to scramble through two tie breakers with a couple of lucky shots. All the best to Yusuf for the remainder of the comp.” Paul
And finally, John Strachan playing Ryan Skorzewski in our Perth North Tennis League. Two players who have been playing in our Perth North League for a while battled out an epic three set thriller. John eventually coming out on top 6-2, 4-6, 7-5.
“A classic England vs Scotland match-up. We both gave it everything and had some great rallies. Each time I snuck ahead, Ryan pegged me back with some big forehands. Ryan was a very generous player and always gave me the benefit of the doubt on some close lines calls. Very much enjoyed the match and look forward to a re-match next season.” John
Great tennis everyone!
