Last night we won our section 8 KDNTA Tennis Grand Final against Guy Turner Reserve. We started a little slowly with Joe & I losing the first four games but we managed to tie it up 6 all only to loose in the tie-breaker. The girls did a little better winning 7-5.
Suzie and I played woefully in the 2’s game and got wiped out 6-0, but Joe & Jewel picked up 6-2 to leave us 1 game behind going into the last set. Jewel and I rocketed through our last set winning 6-2 which meant the flag was sealed because the others were up 4-3 at the time. The wheels then fell off Joe & Suzie’s game as they relaxed, and they only ended up winning 7-6 in another tie-breaker, but it was enough to bring us home by 4 games.
It was a great night though I have to say the standard of tennis seemed a little lack-lustre (especially my own) but we came through on the night. Thank you to the team from Monbulk for Umpiring and especailly to Heather (our fifth player) and Bernie & Bec for braving the cold to come out and watch..
I’ll post some photos of the Flag and the Glass soon.
