Luke lost to Duckworth 63 62.
Opening the encounter with an ace, Duckworth was in fine form from the early stages of the match. In stark contrast, Saville was forced to fend off break points in his opening service game, which added to the mounting pressure. The break came in the fourth game, as Duckworth moved ahead into a 5-2 lead and later closed out the set 6-3.
In the second, Duckworth broke a dejected Saville in the first game, later having to save break points against his own serve to lead 4-2. Moving around the court with ease, Duckworth appeared to have all the answers to Saville's game. He took the second set 6-2 but insisted that he must improve if he is to take out the final.
“I think we were both a bit nervous, probably wasn't both our best match ... it's always tough playing a friend.
