Round 10

Our top 4 Mens Teams all had strong wins on Saturday to maintain their positions in the top 4 in their grades.  All the other teams suffered losses. With 4 rounds to go all points are vital now.  Lots of our affluent members are away on their Europe sojourns so a lot of our teams may be weakened in the next month.

Badge Results Round 10

Mens 1.1 Won 5-3 v Roseville at home.  Bosko/Jono led the way by winning 3 sets whilst Todd/Thomas won 2 sets.  Boyd is now back for 5 weeks from college and was sitting on the bench to support the team.  He is awaiting a call up from Captain Sean.

Mens 1.3 Won 5-3 at home v Killara 2.  Jon/Harald kept up their excellent form to win 4 sets again. President Craig/Fernando won 1 set.

Mens 1.4 Won 5-3 away at Neutral Bay.  Sean continued his great form by combining with Alec to win 4 sets . Father and son Craig/Jarryd won 1 set.

Mens 2.1 Won 5-3 away at Sydney University.  Tim/Jono won 3 sets whilst Scott/ Tom won 2 sets.

Mens 2.2 Lost 5-3 at home v Killara.  Lots of action here with racquets thrown over to court 4 and balls smashed to Sydney Rd.  However we still had an honorable loss to the top team. James/Denis won 3 sets.  Carl/Matt played also.

Mens 2.5 Lost 6-2 at home to Chatswood.  Daniel/Roger won 2 sets and Stu/Ray Dummett tried hard.

Mens 2.6 Lost 5-2 away at Strathfield.  Bob/Ray and Peter/ Ian both won 1 set. There was an unfinished set by Bob /Ray.  Strathfield had one very strong player so we have protested his grading and await a reply.

Ladies 1.1 Lost 0-8 away at Longueville.  The top team were too strong for our ladies, Yvonne/Sarah and Kirsten/Carolina .

Ladies 1.2 Lost 5-2 at home.  Olivia/Sophie won 2 sets whilst Julie/Sharna had an unfinished set. The ladies remain in 2nd position.

PAIR OF THE WEEK:  We had two pairs who won 4 sets each and conceded 15 games each so they are joint winners. Congratulations to Harald/on and to Sean/Alec.

No Badge last weekend but a great result at Paris for Ash Barty and Australian tennis.

She continues on the tradition of small Aussie tennis players in height but big in talent and heart.  As were Evonne Cawley, Ken Rosewall and Rod Laver. There will be lots more wins in store for Ash.

Ash Barty: Newest Family Member

Ashleigh Barty (born 24 April 1996) is an Australian professional tennis player and former cricketer. She is the top-ranked Australian in both women’s singles and doubles, and has been ranked as high as No. 2 in singles and No. 5 in doubles by the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA).

Barty has won five singles titles and ten doubles titles on the WTA Tour, including one Grand Slam singles title at the 2019 French Open and one Grand Slam doubles title at the 2018 US Open with partner CoCo Vandeweghe.

Born in Ipswich in Queensland, Barty began playing tennis at the age of four in nearby Brisbane. She had a promising junior career, reaching a career-high ranking of No. 2 in the world after winning the girls’ singles title at Wimbledon in 2011. As a teenager, Barty had early success in doubles on the WTA Tour in 2013, finishing runner-up at three Grand Slam doubles events with veteran Casey Dellacqua, including at the Australian Open while still only 16 years old. Late in the 2014 season, Barty decided to take an indefinite break from tennis. She ended up playing cricket during this hiatus, signing with the Brisbane Heat for the inaugural Women’s Big Bash League despite having no formal training in the sport.

Barty returned to tennis in early 2016 shortly before turning 20 years old. Although she won her first tournament back on the ITF circuit, her year was ultimately marred by an arm injury. In 2017, Barty had a breakout year in singles, winning her first WTA title at the Malaysian Open and rising to No. 17 in the world despite having never been ranked inside the top 100 before her time off. She also had another prolific year in doubles with Dellacqua, culminating in her first appearance at the WTA Finals. She continued building on that singles success in the next two years with high-level titles at the 2018 WTA Elite Trophy and 2019 Miami Open, before winning her maiden singles Grand Slam title at the 2019 French Open. Even with Dellacqua’s retirement in early 2018, Barty has also continued to improve at doubles, having since won the five biggest doubles titles of her career, including her first Grand Slam title at the 2018 US Open.

Round 9

Climate change happened on June 1 as Autumn became Winter and it seemed to affect our Badge Teams!  We only had three winning teams!!

However our two top Mens teams had big wins to become league leaders, and our Manly 7 Mens team also had a great victory and are now 2nd.

It was not so good for our NRL teams on the weekend. The Blues could be in trouble in State of Origin as no Bulldog players were selected and only one Manly player.  The Maroons however have Cherry-Evans as captain and Dylan Napa from the Bulldogs so maybe the Maroons will be victorious?

Badge Results Round 9

Mens 1.1 Won 8-0 away at Mortdale.  An easy win has put our team now 12 points ahead on the ladder. Both pairs had easy 4 set wins
Well done to Bosko/Andrew and Sean/Jono.

Mens 1.3 Won 8-0 at home to Royal Sydney.  Another easy win to put them on top of the ladder. Milton/Harald and Jon/ Roberto continued their strong form to win 4 sets each.

Mens 1.4 Lost 3-5 to Riverview at home.  A close loss against the top team. Sean/Vincent did well to win 3 sets and Jarryd/Justin played well also.

Mens 2.1 Drew 4-3 away at Eastern Suburbs.  A close match against a strong team. Scott/Tom won 3 sets and had an unfinished set whilst leading. Carl/Tim won 1 set.

Mens 2.2 Lost 3-5 at Cheltenham.  The coach played for Cheltenham and won 4 sets; it would appear that he is too strong for this grade.  Denis/Graham won 2 sets and Richard/James won 1 set. We are still 4th.

Mens 2.5 Bye

Mens 2.6 Won 6-2 v Mosman at home. The guys reversed the away result to Mosman and charged to 2nd on the ladder.  Tommy/Ray and Ian/Peter both won 3 sets. With plenty of talent on the sidelines , this team is a real chance now to be minor premiers.

Ladies 1.1 Lost 2-6 at home to Longueville.  Emily/ Carolina won 2 sets and Kirsten/Yvonne went close in their sets. The ladies are only a few points away from 4th position.

Ladies 1.2 Lost 4-4 on games away at Royal Sydney.  Virginia/Olivia and Johanna/Sophie won 2 sets each.  They are still 2nd on the ladder.

PAIR OF THE WEEK: Four pairs won 4 sets each this weekend but Bosko/Andrew only lost 7 games so they win our pair of the week.

Round 8

It was another great weekend for our Badge Teams with 7 winning teams.  The 7 winning teams are all in the top 4 now and our Ladies 1 team is a half point away from 4th.  Not so good on the football side of things although Bulldogs 2nd grade won 52 -22 !

Badge Results Round 8

Ladies 1.1 Lost 3-5 away at Kooroora.  Emily/Julia played well to win 3 sets whilst Carolina/Sarah went close in their sets. The ladies are now a close 5th on the ladder.

Ladies 1.2 Won 5-3 at home v Eastern Suburbs.  Danni/Virginia won 3 sets again to keep up their high percentage and Julie/Sharna played well again to win 2 sets. The ladies are a close 2nd now.

Mens 1.1 Won 5-3 at home v Kooroora. Andrew/Thomas won 3 sets and Sean/Jono won 2 sets and lost two tiebreakers.  The guys are 1st on the ladder.

Mens 1.3 Won 6-1 away at Western Suburbs.  Milton/Harald won 3 sets and Jon/Roberto won 3 sets and were leading 5-3 in the final set when time ran out. The guys are now in 2nd position.

Mens 1.4 Won 4-4 on games away at NeutralBay.  A good tough win takes this team to 3rd position after a slow start to the season. Sean/Vincent won 3 sets and Craig/Jarryd won 1 set.

Mens 2.1 Won 5-3 at home v Collaroy. This was a great win against the top team. The guys are now in 4th position after a similar slow start to our 1.4 team. Hugo/Jono won 3 sets with Scott/Ben winning 2 sets, one set on forfeit.

Mens 2.2 Won 6-2 away at Beecroft.  This was another good win as it is difficult to play at Beecroft. Graham/Carl won 3 sets again; James/Denis also won 3 sets including a 6-5 set after being down 5-0! Now in 4th position.

Mens 2.5 Lost 2-6 at home v Killara.  Michael/Hamish won 2 sets whilst Stu/David went close in their sets.  This team is missing Daniel who is overseas at The French Open.

Mens 2.6 Won 7-1 at home v Syd Uni.  The seniors gave the juniors another tennis lesson. Bob Amaral/Ray Dalgairns won their 4 sets easily. Des/Ray Dummett won their first 3 sets easily lost a close 4th set.  They are now in 4th position. Next week they play the old foxes from Mosman at home so maybe we need some youth in our team by playing Tommy !

PAIR OF THE WEEK: Our Pair of the round goes to Bob Amaral and Ray Dalgairns who won their 4 sets and lost only 8 games.  They won the award easily. Well done.

Good luck to all our teams this Saturday

Hylton Mace

New Seniors Trophy

A huge crowd turned out to farewell Hylton Mace last Friday. His funeral was held at The Uniting Church in Balgowlah.

Many club members were present and again on Saturday at our club barbecue. Paul Wigney delivered a moving eulogy to his old mate of 75 years last Saturday.

We will be naming a new trophy in Hylton’s honour and it will be contested each year by our combined mens doubles. Hylton chose this event himself so I am sure it will become an honour for our senior members to get their name on this trophy.
