How to use match in a sentence?

  1. Alan Gilpin:

    We are planning right through from what happens if a team hotel is lost, what happens if a training venue is lost, through to what happens if one or more match venues are lost, where do you relocate matches to, what are the time frames, how does that affect transport, planning, moving teams around? We are working through all those scenarios.

  2. Milos Raonic:

    It was a great tennis match. I stayed out there, competed, gave it my all. I gave Milos Raonic a chance after being down a set and a break, i think it just shows the development I've been able to make over the last little while. You put me in that same situation a few months and weeks ago and I think I could be out of that stadium pretty quickly.

  3. Lleyton Hewitt:

    It was an easy decision for me because I'm not risking him before we have a quarter-final match tomorrow, he'll be getting treatment tonight and icing it. Hopefully it pulls up well for tomorrow night.

  4. Warren Gunnels:

    It's a very, very generous match.

  5. Iga Swiatek:

    This match was crazy.
