A week is a long time in tennis! This week we had only 2 winning teams, one drawn match and a couple of close losses on games!
Mens 1 4 sets all drawn on games. Playing away on terrible hardcourts at Hunters Hill was hard work and the men did well to get away with a draw. Boyd and Harry won 2 sets as did Andrew and Todd.
Mens 2 Won 5-3 Playing at Wakehurst the men had a great win to charge into the top 4 on the table. Mike and Jon won 3 sets and Harald and Craig Stevens won 2 sets.
Mens 3 Lost 4-4 on games. A one game loss at Neutral Bay shows this team is very competitive when Andrew Longfellow can add strength to the team. He partnered Tim to win 1 set and went close in the other 3. Sean and Scott again combined well to take 3 sets.
Mens 4 Lost 3-5 at home. With all the young guns out the oldies lost a close match.Graham and Chris won 2 sets and Bob and Denis one set

Mens 6 Lost 4-4 on games. Same story as the others with a 1 game loss.Tommy and Ray won 2 sets and Emerson and David won 2 sets.
Mens 7 Lost 3-5 A close loss again at Cheltenham shows this team is going well and just a bit unlucky in several matches.Peter and Tom won 2 sets and Gordon and Andrew 1 set.
Ladies 1 Lost 2-6 at home. A very competitive match against the top team.Yvonne and Janelle won 2 sets and Kirsten and Marina played well with no luck.
Ladies 2 Won 6-2 at home. The ladies are now 12 points in front on the table and flying high. Danni and Sarah won 4 sets and Carolina and Emily won 2 .Keep up the great tennis,ladies.
Ladies 3 Lost 3-5 away. A close loss keeps this team in the top 4 and they are improving each week. Jane and Erryn won 2 sets and Johanna and Suzie 1 set.
