Another 8-7 nail biter! This match featured two very contrasting players, underdog Charlie, left-handed, gives the ball a fair old whack and imparts a lot of spin especially on his serve, vs Andrew, a little more measured, great shot placement and never gives up. Andrew had the better of the early stages but got stuck down the Hazard end as Charlie reeled off 3 (might have been 4) straight games en route to a 7-6 lead. Finally Andrew got a chase and managed to calm the frenetic pace a bit to get his side of the scoreboard moving. It is worth watching the final few games on the stream! (Sound is a bit dubious). But if you can’t Andrew edged a classic match 8-7!

Congrats to both players for a  worthy contribution to Finals Day!

Andrew Barker vs Charlie Foreman, 40 Category Final, 26/6/21
