Bourne v Grimsby Tennis Club 2 on Sat 21st March 2015  

On a cold, windy Saturday afternoon Bourne hosted a Grimsby Tennis Club Seniors team vying for promotion to the first division.  Bourne’s first pair of Iain Ross and Nigel Bridgewater started strongly in the first rubber and took the first set 6 – 4, however the Grimsby first pair fought back strongly as they got to grips with the conditions on court and took the second by the same margin.  Bourne’s second pair of Martin Slater and Keith Wallace, playing together for the first time this season, halved their opening rubber after fighting hard to secure the first set by winning the deciding tie breaker 7 – 1.  Going into the second round all square the Bourne team realised that an upset was possible and raised their game accordingly.  Iain and Nigel stormed into a commanding lead and won the first set 6 – 1, the Grimsby second string rallied in the second set but could not quite level the rubber, Bourne coming through 6 – 4 in the second set.  It was now down to Martin and Keith to hold their first string opponents.  The first set was really competitive with each pair playing some of their best tennis, it went to tie break and the Bourne pair narrowly won through 8 – 6.  Grimsby won the second set but by then Bourne had done enough to cause an upset and win the match by 5 sets to 3.  With one match still to play Bourne now lie in fourth place in the league.
