Notts Ladies County 60s Report 2014

Div 2A – Captain Jill Shelvey

A reasonably successful season, some really tight matches with “if only we had won the 3rd set tie-break” being said rather too often!
We finished 3rd in the league missing out on promotion back to Div 1 by a couple of those 3rd set tie-breaks!

Results in order of matches played:-.

Match 1- Notts 4 Leics 0

Sue Copestake/ Sue Reesby won 5-7,6-1,10-3
Jill Shelvey/ Helen Drummond won 6-1,6-0
Sue Copestake/Sue Reesby won 6-2,6-0
Jill Shelvey/Helen Drummond won 6-4,6-0.

A good start to the season, home advantage always helps and the team were confident after a great win.

Match 2 - Notts 3 Cambs 1

The one-way system in Cambridge was as testing of our skills and patience as was the tennis. Jill Beardsall stepped down from the 65s and proved a very able replacement-

Jill Shelvey/Helen Drummond lost 4-6,4-6
Sue Copestake/Jill Beardsall won 6-3,6-2
Jill Shelvey/Helen Drummond won 6-2,6-4
Sue Copestake/Jill Beardsall won 6-3,6-4.

Many thanks to Jill B for playing, travelling and her navigation skills.

Match 3 – Notts 1 Shrops 3

A visit to Shrewsbury. This was the downfall of our season; a winnable match but on the day we were second best.

Sue Copestake /Sue Reesby Lost 4-6, 3-6
Jill Shelvey/Helen Drummond Lost7-6, 3-6,8-10
Sue Copestake /Sue Reesby won 6-1,6-1
Jill Shelvey/Helen Drummond Lost 6-4,6-7, 7-10.

The match was a 3-1 loss but it could easily have been a 3-1 win “if only we had won the 3rd set tie-break”!!

Match 4- Notts 2 Herts 2

Well it couldn’t have been closer!

Sets equal. Games equal – 39 all!!

The rules were searched and the referee contacted but it comes down to one point each team; a real draw!!

Sue Copestake /Sue Reesby
Jill Shelvey/Helen Drummond

Both pairs won one match and lost the other closely.

Match 5 - Notts 1 East of Scotland 3

A loss in the final match to the league eventual winners who were unbeaten throughout the season.

Despite their record our team put up a good performance to make it difficult for them.

Sue Copestake /Sue Reesby
Jill Shelvey/Helen Drummond

Sue & Sue managed a win against their second pair in the 3rd set tie break.
