Congratulations to “Oh Danny Boy” who won the grand final and by so doing took out the most prestigious title in tennis in greater Aspendale. Sorry St Louis. They did it in style by losing only one match during the season. Sorry to Rafa your records are falling but please don’t end up like Tiger Woods. Injuries and pain killers take their toll. Alas, we did not sing the “song” as Adam Palmer was not there.
The match was full of drama with the “Smithsonians” winning the first set as Coby and Aya were on fire. The second set was on a knife edge when Danny hurt his twice reconstructed knee and had to come off. At lease it wasn’t Dan Menzel. Kate and Matene then had a monumental struggle with Coby and Rod as Aya was unable to watch from the stand. Matene and Kate prevailed 7 games to 5 and Rod was dragged off the court by Coby and Aya. The guru thought Rod had played well but this is big time tennis and there is no place for sentiment. The third set was an anti-climax 6 games to 1 as Matene and Kate played at full rat power and Aya had seized up after sitting out the second set.
Great effort by all concerned including the peanut gallery who did not miss a shot.
We will get back to all concerned about next season but will have a break from comp through July. Expect a start first or second week in August. I am happy to go down for a hit if the weather is good, but use the time to recover from injuries and shake out those mental demons.
Always next season.
