Match Reports

Monday 22nd June 2015 Junior League results

TTT beat Bicester FD 4-1.
For TTT - Kiarash 2, Scott 1, doubles 1.
For Bicester FD - Dylan 0, Faith 1, doubles 0.

Although the Bicester FD v TTT match was a good win for TTT it was not a whitewash. The outstanding match saw Faith beat Scott 11-9, 11-7, 10-12, 9-11, 11-9. The win was not sufficient to boost TTT's position in the League.

No Name beat Fulham 4-1.
For No Name - Jamie 2, Nick 1, Doubles 1.
For Fulham - Adam 0, Arthur 1, doubles 0.

The Fulham v No Name match saw an unlikely win for No Name. Fulham had only lost once in the season but were comprehensively beaten this time. No Name got off to a good start winning the first two singles. Nick beat Adam 5-11, 11-0, 11-9, 11-6 and Jamie won a marathon against Arthur 12-10, 12-14, 10-12, 11-7,11-9. Fulham's only win was Arthur v Nick 11-6, 11-7, 11-4. The win ensured that No Name would be runners up. Fulham's earlier record was enough to make them Champions of the Junior League for 2015.

Monday 15th June 2015 Junior League results

Fulham beat TTT 3-2.
For Fulham - Adam 1, Arthur 1 doubles 1.
For TTT - Tobias 0, Kiarash 2, doubles 0.

Adam and Arthur edged through in the doubles in the Fulham v TTT match. Tobias Doye subbed for Scott and ran up against an experienced pair who had played together in every round in the Junior League. That was most evident in the doubles where Tobias and Kiarash had no time to work out their tactics before Adam and Arthur won in 4 sets, 11-3, 11-5, 7-11, 11-9. In the singles Kiarash dropped 1 game to Arthur but otherwise won his other games. Tobias put in a lot of effort with some good attacking shots but lost to both Adam and Arthur in 3 sets.

No Name beat Bicester FD 4-1.
For No Name - Jamie 2, Kiarash (sub) 1, Tobias (sub) 1, Doubles Jamie and Adam (sub) 1.
For Bicester FD - Faith 0, Dylan 1, doubles 0.

Nick was unable to play in the Bicester FD v No Name game but Jamie and subs managed to triumph. Bicester's only win was Dylan against Tobias in 3 sets, 11-8, 11-9, 11-6.

Monday 8th June 2015 Junior League results

Bicester FD could not make this evening so there was only one match again.

TTT beat No Name 3-2.
For TTT - Scott 0, Kiarash 2, doubles 1.
For No Name - Nick 1, Adam (sub) 1, doubles 0.

Adam subbed for Jamie in the singles for No Name and Arthur subbed in the doubles. Kiarash is clearly getting into his stride as he won his singles very easily. Nick and Adam can see what they should be aspiring to. A closer doubles but Scott and Kiarash were winners 11-7, 11-13, 11-4, 11-6.

All players in the League are attack minded and need to develop more defensive skills. The serve of some players is illegal and some attention is needed to ensure correct, and therefore fair, serving is achieved.

Monday 1st June 2015 Junior League results

This week saw the closest results so far.

TTT beat 3-2 Bicester FD.
For TTT - Scott 1, Kiarash 2, doubles 0.
For Bicester FD - Faith 0, Nick (sub) 1, Arthur (sub) 0, doubles 1.

For TTT against Bicester FD the doubles were not the conclusive sets. Nick (a sub for Bicester) and Faith beat Kiarash and Scott 11-7, 10-12, 11-9, 11-9. Nevertheless, Kiarash with two wins and Scott with one saw TTT as winners.

Fulham beat No Name 3-2.
For the Fulham - Arthur 2, Adam 1, doubles 0.
For No Name - Jamie 1, Nick 0, doubles 1.

Similarly, the doubles winners in the Fulham v No Name match were not the match winners. In the closest match old rivals and team mates Arthur and Jamie served up a long 5 setter with Fulham's Arthur winning 8-11, 16-14, 9-11, 15-13, 11-6. The doubles went to Jamie and Nick 9-11, 11-8, 12-10 11-3 but other singles wins for Adam and Arthur meant Fulham winning the match.

Monday 18th May 2015 Junior League results

This week saw two matches played without the need for subs. Kiarash Shaddel joined the League. In order to make the teams more balanced Kiarash joined with Scott in TTT and Nick moved to play with Jamie in No Name. The move resulted in closer matches.

TTT beat 4-1 No Name.
For TTT - Scott 1, Kiarash 2, doubles 1.
For No Name - Jamie 1, Nick 0, doubles 0.

Kiarash won his 2 matches for TTT, dropping only one game to Jamie of No Name. It clearly inspired Scott as he beat Nick in a 5 setter 8-11, 11-8, 8-11, 13-11, 11-6. The doubles was also a 5 setter and after a shaky start, Kiarash and Scott came through to beat Jamie and Nick 6-11, 4-11, 12-10, 11-5, 11-9.

Fulham beat Bicester FD 3-2.
For the Fulham - Arthur 1, Adam 1, doubles 1.
For Bicester FD - Dylan 0, Antony 2, doubles 0.

In the other match Antony replaced Faith in the Bicester team and managed 2 wins including one in three sets against Arthur of Fulham, no mean feat for a starter, 11-8, 11-7, 13-11. These 2 wins were not enough as Arthur and Adam won their other singles and, together, took the doubles in three sets.

Monday 11th May 2015 Junior League results

Unfortunately Bicester were unable to field a team this night so just one match was played.

Fulham beat TTT 5-0.
For Fulham - Arthur 2, Adam 2, doubles 1.
For TTT - Scott 0, Nick 0, doubles 0.

Fulham powered through TTT in a match that saw Adam gaining revenge for his defeat by Nick the previous week 11-9, 9-11, 11-8, 11-9.

Monday 20th April 2015 Junior League results

A week of clear cut results.

Fulham beat TTT 4-1.
For Fulham - Arthur 2, Adam 1, doubles 1.
For TTT - Scott 0, Nick 1, doubles 0.

TTT avoided a whitewash when Nick just triumphed in a 5 setter with Adam 11-13, 8-11, 11-5, 14-12, 11-9. A case of not being prepared to give in as far as both players were concerned.

No Name beat Bicester FD 5-0.
For No Name - Jamie 2, Arthur (sub) 2, Doubles (Jamie and Scott (sub)) 1.
For the Bicester FD - Faith 0, Dylan 0, doubles 0.

No Name came through convincingly against Bicester FD. However, they were helped by Arthur subbing for Jamie's team. Both these players are older and more experienced than the Bicester players and it showed. However, it would have improved the Bicester players by having such strong opposition.

Monday 13th April 2015 Junior League results

These two games showed that experience counts.

No Name beat TTT 4-1.
For No Name - Jamie 2, Adam (sub) 1, Dylan (sub) 0, doubles (Jamie and Faith (sub)) 1.
For TTT - Scott 0, Nick 1, doubles 0.

Both Jamie and Arthur gained maximums. Jamie had to have subs with him and Adam and Faith, in the doubles meant that No Name ran out winners against TTT. Adam's match with Scott was the closest with Adam winning 15-13, 11-6, 11-13, 11-9.

Bicester FD beat Fulham 3-2.
For Bicester FD - Dylan 1, Faith 1, doubles 1.
For the Fulham - Arthur 2, Adam 0, doubles 0.

The other match was decided in the doubles with Dylan and Faith beating Adam and Arthur 11-9, 11-7, 5-11, 14-12. The best game saw Dylan edging it against Adam at the death 6-11, 11-8, 8-11, 11-7, 11-9.

Features of the matches were the attacking styles of all players and the ability to maintain rallies. A good start to the competition.
