I remember having county squads with him and a few others in Bolton - one of the most consistent players I ever played against when I was younger. Didn't hit the biggest shots but made up for it with his court craft which was always high even when we were young.

Great effort in a tiebreak v Ward -Hibbert in Sheffield Futures. I know W- Hibbert is young but Smethurst double faulted twice to give W-Hibbert 3-0 serving in the breaker and then wins the next 7 points to take it 7-3 . won the second 6-1. semi now

Yeah , well last year was a great year for him, hopefully he can keep himself locked in the top 400 and maybe cause a upset or two .

Qualified for a Challenger in Poznan Poland on the Clay . Can't believe he's still hovering around the top 400 after a average year . 1 title and 1 final in futures in Britain .

What do you find so hard to believe. 300-400 is about his level.
