Tough loss for 4.5 men


Once again the Simsmore Men’s 4.5 team ran into a deep and competitive
squad from Newington, where the 5-0 defeat did not do justice to how close
each match truly was. There were no sets that were 6-0 or 6-1; rather,
the first two doubles teams had tie-breakers and the 3rd team of John
Wright and Chris Kent went three sets. Many of the Newington players had
big serves. And on their faster surface, we found ourselves struggling,
at times, to get the point started.
