Default Pretty close group...

Emma was playing a small tennis tournament today. She played both singles and doubles. The doubles group was pretty small - only three teams so they played a round-robin...

The result (Rank, Team, Matches, Sets, Games):

1. Caroline/Dzenana 2-0 4-2 20-19
2. Amanda/Frida 1-1 3-3 21-21
3. Emma/Alexzandra 0-2 2-4 21-22

All three matches went to the deciding match tiebreak....

F/A vs A/E: 5-7, 6-4, [10-5]
F/A vs C/D: 6-3, 3-6, [4-10]
A/E vs C/D: 6-3, 4-6, [6-10]

Before the last match the situation was that if A/E won in straight sets they would win the round-robin/group. Or if it went to a match tiebreaker they would win if they had a positive game ratio (which they had) *and* won the tieabreaker. They got to 6-6 in the tiebreaker. And lost, and thus finished last. Drat!

Ah well... It was a good warm-up for Emma for her bigger tournament that starts on Monday (she also lost her singles match).

Btw, since it's my birthday today let's celebrate with some free beer for all!
