After Sultan Gangji promised a can of tennis balls as a prize to the winner of the first tournament match played, the tournament started in earnest with three matches on Thursday 29 July.
Bruce Rigal won the can of balls by beating Paul Rubie in a tight match 7-6 6-1. He also had competition from Logan Mair who beat Michael Siviter more easily 6-0 6-0 and Matt Wasser & Eugene Belin who beat Charles Rubinstein & Richard Nightingale 6-2 6-2.
On the Saturday the weather looked dodgy, but a couple of matches were played. Ed Fitzpatrick beat Charles Rubinstein 6-0 6-1 in the singles, and Bruce Rigal & Aaron Watkins beat Magnus Stuxberg & Pavel Markiewicz 6-3 6-2 in the doubles.
Does anyone have any pictures or more detail on the matches?
