The match was fiercely contested. In the first round, Lister McKiddie teamed up with another local, Fraser Patterson, of Dalbeattie who played doubles against a strong first couple and lost 6-2, 6-3. There were a lot of close games however Lister and Fraser could not quite win the crucial points.

Derek Lauder of Esporta Hamilton (originally Prestwick) played first singles and had a very long match going down 6-3, 6-4.

Terry McGuigan of Ayr played the second singles and pushed his opposite number all the way despite having picked up a calf injury early in the match.

In the second round, Lister and Fraser teamed up again and although in a winning position in both sets could not close out the match and lost 6-4, 7-5. The last match involved Derek and Terry teaming up in a doubles and going down 6-4, 6-2.

The overall result therefore was a 5-0 defeat but there are promising signs for the future league matches and they hope to bounce back in the next matches.

The third round of the Aegon National Tennis League Games took place last Sunday when Dumfries took on Waverley (Edinburgh).

Waverley are a well respected Edinburgh team and one of the strong contenders for Division 3. Dumfries continued their good form by winning the match 4-2. Dan McKiddie at one continued his good form being unbeaten in all matches so far and won a tight match in the third set match tie break.

Ritchie Cunningham at two put on an impressive performance to win convincingly 6-2, 6-3. Next at 3, Graeme Cross in his first match stepped up to the mark with a fine performance winning 6-3, 6-3. The last singles rubber was lost by Kyle Singh 6-3, 7-6 in a close encounter.

In the doubles, the scratch pairing of Dan and Graeme with their excellent double skills combined well to win 6-4, 6-3. The final rubber was lost by Ritchie and Kyle 6-3, 7-6 to make the overall result an excellent 4-2 win for Dumfries.

That sets up the grand finale against Stirling University this Sunday with both teams having won all their matches. Dumfries will have to play their best to beat a strong Stirling team.
