McEnroe & Borg Cruise through 1st round


The Playroom's entry into the Sporting Koekenda Tennis cup cruised through their first round match aggainst Tor Stewart and The love Muscle on Sunday at Kelvin.

The Playroom Team consisting of James "Bjorn Borg" Brown and John McEnroe were too strong for their opponents when they breezed past them in straight sets 6-4, 6-3, 6-4. Both teams played some stupendous tennis at times with Borg showing glimpses of the form that had him winning all those grand slams in the late 80's. It was a tight game that was marred by the fierce sunlight blinded the players at time. It will be remembered for the players inability to hold serve at crucial moments. All in all it was a good day out and a full complement of points for the playroom side.
They face much tougher test when they face Seb and Jamie Curtis of The Balaclava Models in their next round match on Sunday.

I would like to appeal and rescind what was stated about last weeks Koekenda game.

There was no cruising whatsoever, and Mr. McEnroe was asked on repeated accounts to lower his voice and refrain from such foul profanity on Kelvin Groove's Center Court. He found himself being more careful with his final racket, after throwing his other three into the crowds.

The Playroom struck it lucky, Sky Flint's ankle injury from his previous weeks lion hunting had left him unable to play.
