SENIOR MATCH NEWS

Men’s singles

Mike Richardson bt Louis Peacock 7-6/3-6/11-9

Epic battle with both players having opportunities to win. Mike saved 4 match points from 5-9 down in the championship tie break to finally break Louis’ resistance and get his name on the board of Lev.

Ladies singles

Zoe Mortimer-Ford bt Melissa F 7-6/6-2

Melissa played some excellent tennis (especially in the first set), but was finally worn down by the all round consistency of Zoe’s game.

Men’s doubles

Louis Peacock/Will Faux bt Craig Davies/James Cuthbert 6-4/7-6

Another tight tussle which could have gone either way. Inspired tennis from Peacock/Faux towards the end of the second set was enough to take them over the line.

Ladies doubles

Jane Overington/Zoe Mortimer-Ford bt Suzanne Broadbridge/Melissa F 4-6/6-2/10-7

A great match up between two pairs at the top of their game. Greater matchplay experience finally paid off for the Overington/Mortimer-Ford partnership in a nail biting championship tie break.

Mixed doubles

Zoe Mortimer-Ford/Will Faux bt Melissa F/Mike Richardson 6-2/6-2

Some great shots by the F/Richardson combination, but just not enough to cause the champions too much concern.

Mixed doubles h’cap

Yvonne Faux/Phil Sansom bt Hilary Clifton/Jonathan Nott 6-4/7-5

Quality doubles tactics from the Faux/Sansom partnership finally overcame the Clifton/Nott pair, with a special mention due to Phil who extended his unbeaten run at the club to four sets.
