Christ’s have been unlucky to lose their last few matches.
The one against Fitzwilliam in particular went to the wire with a 5-4 loss. The men’s captain doled out a 6-1 6-2 thrashing to hiss opposite number and a strong singles and doubles win from Ian, albeit by forfeit, pushed us forward. Ilana was unlucky to lose 6-4 6-4 against very strong opposition against their no.1 seed and many would say James Bartram should have done better when up 5-3 in his singles. At that point you have to assume the mind, and not the body, just folds. In fairness to the lad, he did rectify his mistakes when he and I partnered an epic doubles group in which we won after being a set down. Will Heilpern, over whom many had concerns, played a scorcher at no.2 and almost got a scalp. Sadly not though.
Keep up your head Christ’s. There have been some strong performances and the results will come.
