Men’s Chelsea Cup 24th March - Round 7 vs Whangaparaoa
“Tipping Point”. These two words sum up the evening for me. The score sheet was full of 6-4s, 7-5s and 7-6s. Well done to all the boys for holding their nerve when it counted. The matches were closely contested and when Adam casted an eye across the other matches he thought he better win or at the very least win a set in case we went down to sets in the count back. Suspense, uncertainty and scintillation prevailed for a while as a partisan Whangaparooa crowd cheered. But to no avail, it was tough to compete with the passionate roars of “come on” from Semisi as he pumped himself up to win 7-5, 7-5 against close rival Freddie Cashmore. It was a double duo debut for Semisi, as he doubled up with Brendon Furness to win their first doubles together 7-6, 6-2 against Teo Susnjak and Fraser Croad. Another noteworthy performance was from our “junior” on the night, Connor van Dalsum. He managed to win 6-4, 7-5 against Fraser Croad, with a score like that the momentum could have shifted in both sets. The Campbells Bay Fan Club was also treated to some unbelievable tennis from Mark Nielsen and Alex Hamilton who used the length and breadth of the court at every opportunity. It was a great match, the only thing that didn’t match up was the score of 6-3, 6-3. And it looks like our Captain and the team will be peaking for the semis! Adam is saving his best for, last only narrowly losing his singles in 3 sets. In the end we chalked up a very good win 5-1.
Yes we are in the Semis we have ended up 2nd on the leader board and will be playing Beach Haven at home this Friday, Whooooo hoooooo!
So it will be a double header at home this Friday 31st March, as our women’s team who are also in 2nd place will be playing Milford.
