Tennis: National Club League – 29th Sep

1 10 2013

Dumfries Men’s Tennis Team are currently taking part in the Aegon National Club League. In the first match against Dunfermline the team won in a match shoot out 7 – 6.

Last Sunday, 29th September they took on Craigmiller Park, Edinburgh at Nunholm. Lister McKiddie who had to play at 1 due to the ratings system was well beaten by his opponent – 6 – 0, 6 – 2. At 2 , Dan McKiddie had a comfortable win 6 – 1, 6 -0. Ritchie Cunningham had a very good win against a useful opponent 6 – 2, 6 – 3. Kyle Singh produced another excellent performance, growing in confidence from his win last week, winning 10 – 7 in the third set match tie break.

That meant Dumfries were 3 -1 up after the singles. In doubles, Lister and Dan McKiddie combined to take on strong opponents on paper. However,the McKiddie’s doubles experience from having played together a lot made the difference and they had a solid win 6 – 2, 6 – 3.

In the other doubles, Richard and Kyle combined in what was to become a dead rubber, lost a close match 7-6, 7– 6.

That means that Dumfries have won its first two matches and now play Stirling University at home on Sunday in what could well be the title decider as Stirling have won both their matches so far comfortably.
