Match Report

Tennis Blues in hard-fought win over Warwick
Cambridge followed up their dominant win over Nottingham last week with a hard-fought 6–2 away win at Warwick.
Captain Tim Prossor, fully fit after retiring from his match last week, recorded a 7–6, 6–3 win at no. 1 singles. He recovered from a 3–5 deficit in the first set to win in the first set tie-break and never looked back in the second set.
At no. 2 singles, Neil Cordon prevailed 7–5, 6–7, 6–4 against a big-serving opponent. He remained composed after losing the second set. After he got the break early in the final set, he held serve comfortably to win in almost 3 hours.
However, Michael Pedersen lost 5–7, 4–6 at no. 3 singles. Pedersen paid the price for not returning well and not converting on his break point chances.
Alex Cole wrapped up the win for the Blues at no. 4, winning 7–5, 7–5 after saving three set points in the second set.
Due to the unavailability of courts for doubles, Cambridge won the tie by virtue of winning the singles matches.
