John almost came back in the second set as I was serving out for the match and John won the next 10 points on the trot but luckily for me I managed to get over the line.

The tarmac court was wet from heavy rain and the low sun and cross wind made play something of a lottery. At one end the lines were almost invisible. Richard tried to dominate the net on several occasions but Lydia's accurate lobs drove him back again and again. Only Lydia's understandable caution playing on a slippery surface was the difference between the players. Richard's decision to wear rubber-soled Converse trainers appeared to be the right one as they gave him the confidence to chase down the ball."  -- Richard
