Match Report
Sherborne School Boys-U18A vs  LTA Wincanton Festival Tennis Grade 5
On: Saturday, 14 Sep 2019
Venue: Away

The players and parents who attended at Wincanton on Saturday enjoyed watching the tennis on a very warm and sunny and afternoon. Euan Jardine and Cosmo Henderson both won their opening matches 4-0 4-0, to set up second rounds with the number one and two seeds respectively at this 18/U event. Following them on court, Nick Morris and Sam Vincent met some strong resistance from their first round opponents, both losing by the score 4-2 4-0. The quarter final matches were tough! Euan and Cosmo played some good variations, but in the process a tie break in each of their matches shaped the destiny for the semi finals. Euan lost 4-3 4-2 to Frankie King (Somerset) in a feisty contest and Cosmo after much endeavour to Jasper Pover of Avon, 4-1 4-3. Nick Morris took charge of his first consolation match winning 4-1 4-0. Sam Vincent won his last match 4-3 4-2 to finish 9th. There was to be another tie break in the 7th / 8th placed match with Nick beaten 4-3 4-1 by William Edlin (Avon). Cosmo was top placed for Sherborne in 5th following a play off match with Euan (finishing 6th) in the very late afternoon. No doubt the boys gained a lot of feedback on where they are with their singles game skill, physical and mental toughness. The aim now is to work further on those key areas, especially tie breaks- before the next tournament or Club match.
