ETC Open 4th Round Preview (Prepared by Peter Drake)

The tension mounts for the last of the group stages. Who will join Darren and Adrian, the

seventh and fourth ranked players respectively, in the next round?

Damian - Angela (10)

H2H 0-0

No head to head between these two players though Damian must fancy his chances lying third in the table after three rounds. Meanwhile how will Angela react after her nail-biting defeat to Nigel in the previous round? A confidence booster hopefully in what counts as a tough assignment against the talented Damian.

Danny (1) - Slaw (5)

H2H 1-0

2016) Danny - Slaw 2:0 6-1 6-3

Two years ago in their only meeting Danny had a 6-1,6-3 victory, but that was two years ago. Has Slaw the ability and the will after defeats to Pete and Damian, to reverse that result? Danny looks to be back to top form and will cling tenaciously onto his number one ranking. Should be fascinating.

Ahmad (2) - Nigel (6)

H2H 0-0

The stakes are high for number 2 seed Ahmad as he takes on Angela’s narrow conqueror from round three. Ahmad comes into the game after a couple of walk-overs and a close loss to the table-topping Darren. He will want to make sure he makes no mistakes here. No head to heads so history is being written in this tie.

Roy (9) - Pete (8)

H2H 3-0

2013) Roy - Pete 2:1 4-6 6-3 7-5

2013) Roy - Pete 2:0 6-2 6-3

2015) Roy - Pete 2:0 7-6 6-3

This match-up has history, unfortunately for Pete a history all in favour of Roy. Since their first three set epic in 2013, Roy has had the upper hand with a couple of two set wins. Can Pete rewrite history in this intriguing match between two mid-table players?
