A tough day for the boys against a very solid West Scotland team. Howerer the score didn’t give a totally fair reflection on the days play as many of the matches came down to small margins and were very competitive. A point here and there and the tie would have become far more scoreline competitive.
John Taylor and Dom Lea had hard fought matches losing in close sets, full of break point opportunities and half chances, but unfortunately coming up just short. The same could be said for Charlie James, losing in a third set tie-break.
The doubles and Cambridge showed their classy play, at times blitzing past their opponents. Most noticeably John Taylor and Alex Wardley, who played very disciplined and clinical doubles in winning their first set 6-2, only to lose three sudden death Duce points in set two, to drop that and lose on a match tiebreak. Similarly, Josh Wilson and Maki Zivotic couldn’t get the right side of three 1st set sudden death points.
