Hi Tennis fans, it was time for West lakes purple to play West lakes green in perfect tennis conditions on 16th November. Green team has Jake, Dimitri, Dylan and Marco. Purple team is Riley, Alex, Ciaran and Evan. Jake and Dimitri defeated Riley and Alex in the first doubles 6-2, the score did not tell the story as it was a tight match with several games having numerous deuces with the boys on both sides fighting to hold serves. This could have gone either way but the boys played a really good match allround, it was good to watch.
Second doubles was Dylan and Marco against Ciaran And Evan. Evan and Ciaran were off to a flyer heading out to a 4-1 lead with Marco and Dylan looking for answers. In a blink the momentum swung around to Marco and Dylan with scores suddenly level at 5-5. Marco under the pump served the set out well to secure the set 6-5, good game both teams.
Jakes week out for the purple team so Riley was number 1 up against Jake from the green team. Big welcome to Riley who came across from Orion club and has slotted in to his team well and a pretty handy basketballer also, good to have you with us Riley and family. Jake has been in good form so this was going to be a good test for both kids. This was their first match against one another and Riley played a good set taking Jake by surprise with a solid 6-2 win, looking forward to next time they meet. Dimitri, Dylan and Marco all had convincing wins. Dimitri beat Alex 6-3 in a match with good rallies from the baseline, well done lads. Dylan beat Ciaran 6-0 playing steady consistent tennis, I know Ciaran can bounce back next week and start hitting some good balls again. Marco was up against Evan in the battle of number 4, Marco won 6-1 in convincing fashion but I’m sure Evan will find some form again next week. This was Marcos first game this season and was great to see him back on court in the club shirt, well done Marco Overall a 5-1 win to the green team but we know the other lads will bounce back from that next time the west lakes boys meet up again, well done guys and keep up the good work.
Enjoy your tennis, happy hitting!
