Premier League Cambridge 1 vs Hatfield 1

Posted on April 1, 2008 | in Match Report, National League | by

A full dedans watched four players they knew well – all having spent their formative years playing at Cambridge. Peter Paterson, defecting to the Hatfield team for the evening, played at a higher level than expected; most felt that he had a chance of taking the first set. But the Cambridge no.2, Jamie Douglas, showed great confidence, a determination to play a controlled game and, one would imagine, superior fitness to win through in straight sets.

As expected, Mark Hobbs would sweat blood for Hatfield and in the early stages, when the ball was mainly on the floor and in the corners, the score reached 3-all. It was at this point that David Woodman, now Dr. Woodman after being awarded his PhD the day prior, stepped up the pace with number of life-threatening forces. Hobbs just could not cope with the sheer aggression of Woodman and was defeated in quick fashion after his promising start.

Although all players made their contribution to a great night of tennis it was Dr. Woodman’s quality and the rising star from the University, Douglas who were always ahead. Cambridge won all matches and took 7 points.

Jamie Douglas defeated Peter Paterson 6/4, 6/2
David Woodman defeated Mark Hobbs 6/3, 6/1
Woodman/Douglas won the doubles 8/2
