Mark Avery was in imperious form for the Surbiton Easter Open (16th-17th Apr), winning 7/7 with six TPs.
While some of the usual big guns - Patel, Burch, et al - were sunning themselves in California, the competition was still intense, with Carter (Christian, not the other one), Cordingley, Myers, Noble, Ormerod, Parish, Murray (Sam), Taylor (Joel), Town, Wilkinson, etc. all wanting to topple the favourite. In the end, many of these proved to be a tad rusty, and second place went to Sam Murray, who beat everybody but Avery, and in third place was Campbell Morrison, ditto.
The courts were as fast as they would be in July and the temperature was typical for December.
