In the mens doubles match two father and son teams battled it out – Philip & Walter Reid versus Bruce & Joseph Rigal. Although Walter was easily the elder of the two fathers, he played well during the very tight match. There were no breaks in the first set, taken by the Reids on a tie break, and in the the second set only Bruce was broken for a 7-6 7-5 victory for the Reids.
The consequences next day of the effort by Walter Reid were that he was rather tired for the next round against Logan Mair & Sam Evans, the third seeds. See Thursday’s match report for the result.
