McEnroe & Borg Downed in Straights

It was a woeful day for Playroom tennis's Doubles pairing of John McEnroe and James Borg. They were thoroughly beaten in straight sets this morning 6-0, 6-3, 6-2 by the Balaclava Models, Jamie Curtis and Seb FM. Unforced errors were the order of the day with a few double faults thrown in for good measure. Both Borg & McEnroe were visible dispondant after the fixture in which McEnroe smashed a record 14 rackets including 3 of Borgs. Borg only had this to say: "We made too many f#%king mistakes. I could not hit the f$*king ball in at all. F^!k this game".

They were out played by a well grooved pairing and have a lot of work to do if they hope to be contenders at the end of the tournament. They will have to put in some practice and now realise that they cannot just rely on natural talent anymore.

James Borg also set a record when he became the first man in Sporting Koekenda Cup history to serve an entire game of double faults. 4 in a row. Fuck me thats horrible.
