Fixture: Oswestry Ladies 3 v Hollies Ladies 3
Result: Won 4-0
The team got off to a great start with a 4 - 0 win at home. The weather forecast was for thunderstorms but we decided to take a chance and not to postpone. We were very lucky and just had to put up with some rain for 20 minutes.
The team played some excellent tennis. Linda Davies partnered Carolyn Yates for the first time and had a tough very close first rubber with games evenly won by both teams until the Oswestry pair sneaked ahead in the final games of each set winning in straight sets, 6-4 6-4. Their second rubber was a one sided affair with Oswestry only losing 3 games.
Jo Dalietos partnered Liz Newsholme in the other 2 rubbers. They dismissed the Hollies pair quickly losing just 4 games in their first rubber but had a far closer contest in their second rubber. They won the first set 6-3 but let the opposition back into the game losing the 2nd set 4-6. So the rubber would be decided by a tie break. This was a very tense affair and Hollies took an early lead, but Jo and Liz kept their concentration and pulled ahead to take the tie break 10-5. Well done.
