Match Report

Women’s blues vs oxford

You can’t say that the tennis team are not willing to go to extreme lengths for their University; wake-up alarms at 5.40am and still not complaining (that much). Monika ate her lunch at 9.44am.
The day started with doubles; newly-paired Monika and Cassie played at number 1 and although they were feeling the effects of an early morning they improved towards the end, losing 6-2 6-3. The pairing seems to be promising for the future.
At number 2 pair was Jane and Beth, who were still asleep by the time they came off the court and lost 6-2 6-3.
Monika played Amy Partridge in singles who was just slightly too good in every department and better at actually “winning” points.she lost 6-1 6-0.  Things took a better turn in the next two matches.

Cassie won against Camille Goodman 6-1 6-1. Pretty easy you would think, apart from the fact that Cassie stayed tomato-coloured for a good half an hour after vacating the court.
Jane at number 3 had a “wobbly and stressful moment” when she lost one game in the first set. After a very much needed pep-talk from the captain didn’t have that problem again ,and won 6-1 6-0.
Beth was at number 4 and lost against Frances Benson 6-2 6-1. We shall use “rustiness” and “old age” as an excuse.
Despite this 8-4 loss against Oxford we are hopeful for the next match and for Varsity when we will SMASH THEM.
