Men's B vs. Wantage 5

Sat 01 Oct, 2022 - Away

Won - 3-5

The squad consisted of Victor and Makoto as 2nd pair with Jie and Peter being 1st  pair. 

We arrived just after 12:30 pm to bright sunlight and warm temperatures and after a 30 minute warm up the match started. 

Victor and Makoto did brilliantly against a very solid and consistent 1st pair to keep in front throughout the two sets to win 4-6 and 3-6. 

Peter and Jie on the other court were not doing as well against the 2nd pair losing the first set to a tie break but regrouped and won the second set quite easily 3-6. 

So going into the reverse rubber it was Wantage 1 set NGLTC 3 sets. 

Makoto and Victor were leading their 1st set but the opposition steadied to force a tie break which they eventually won. Undaunted Victor and Makoto didn’t lose focus and won the second set 2-6. 

Peter and Jie were also taken to a tie break in their first set and once again Wantage prevailed. In the second set Peter and Jie were leading but the  very consistent Wantage 1st pair kept keeping the ball in play and forced another tie break. This time Peter and Jie won the 4 of the first 5 points and took the tie break 7 point to 4 and thus  won the final set.

 So after nearly five hours of tennis Makoto and Victor won 3 sets with  Peter and Jie winning 2 sets and placing us second in the league.

Well done squad.
