Well it's a funny old life. Here we are in Whakatane. Last year the rain poured down and the lawns had to be squeegeed. Today the sun shone. Today I - or we in the 'top' group of players - played six of the best games we have ever played in a single session. I can truthfully say that even if I had lost all six matches they would have been 'good' losses. Almost all the matches we played ran to 7-6 or 7-5 (or 6-7, 5-7 depending on whether you were a winner or a loser). As it happens I was fortunate enough to be a winner in 5 out of the 6 games I played. The result was that I won the top group of the tournament. So this evening I am a happy bunny.
