The spectators were on hand. They usually cheer for the underdog, and that is usually me! So they made quite a ruckus when I played!

When the score was 6-2 against us, I told Richard, "They won't give us a wave unless we score a point! Richard scored that point!! The spectators came through with a big wave and cheer!! We won another point, and another. At the end of the match Richard and I were the winners!! I think that's the only match I won on Saturday!! Thank you Richard and sideliners!!

Ken enjoyed the match too!

Chris and Mark.

Everyone had a great time!! Great tournament, Rick and Shirley!!
