We don’t get many National Champions from our Sheffield Tennis Community but Wilf Jessop last week won the National Over 70 Indoor Men’s Doubles Championship at Tipton. The score in the final testifies to an interesting match for the spectators but heart-stopping for the players.
After a 1-6 drubbing Wilf and partner twice overcame being a break down to win the second set 6-4. The Match tie-break , their scores first, went 3-5, 9-6, three match points LOST for 9-10, match point SAVED for 10-10, then two points won for the title. Well done Wilf, carrying on the tradition started by Andrews and Ranson in 2010 (just the winning, not the manner!)
