Monika, Anna, Tanya and Chloe travelled all the way into the depths of Peterborough for their first match of the season against Bristol first team. It all started with the doubles. Everyone was a little rusty and sadly although we put up a fight it just wasn’t quite enough. Monika and Tanya lost 1-6 2-6 but still managed to bang out a lot of aces! Chloe and Anna, despite a poor start, managed to fight in the second set, the final
score being 0-6 4-6. By the time
we started the singles we were getting into our stride. Monika played her twin sister who was surprised at the standard. It was a hard-fought match but twin psychology was too tough for Monika and she lost 6-7 (6-8) 4-6. Anna came up against a inspired opponent. This was her first match playing for Cambridge and it has made her eager to fight hard next week! Tanya is shattered after a good run around. She almost took the second set but her opponents consistency proved too strong. Chloe sadly was out powered by her opponent who whacked her off the court. Despite the loss we are looking forward to our coached sessions and proving ourselves next week and during the rest of the season.
