Thrilling Open final

It was a perfect late Autumn day,  no wind and soft sunshine, today.
Tobie and Eric began their match at about 10.45 and finished 2 and a half hours later.
By all accounts it was the best single final we have had at the club.
A thrilling battle that could have gone either way.
Eric took an early lead with the first 3 games.
Tobie came back in the 5th and 6th game but Eric took the first set 6-4.
Tobie started the next set by taking the first game 40-0.
We were treated to long rallies, going to deuce at least 4 times, each player testing each other at the base line and Tobie took the advantage in the 3rd game and broke Eric's serve in the 4th game.
Tobie took the 2nd set 6-2.
The third set  was won by Tobie to take the championship title , 6-1.

This has been a great championship and we look forward to the challengers returning next year.
