The British Open Singles - Real Tennis

This year’s final of the British Land Open Real Tennis Singles Championship (2004), the game’s richest and most prestigious tournament, saw world champion Robert Fahey sensationally defeated by world number 2 Tim Chisholm at Queen's Club, West London.

Match Report:
It was Fahey’s first loss in a major championship for 3 years. Fahey, 34, world champion since 1994 and the only man to win back-to-back Grand Slams, started tentatively and always looked under pressure against the dogged Chisholm who forced and volleyed explosively, taking the opening set 6-4.

Fahey raised his game, thundering a string of winning forces on return of serve to level at set all and although Chisholm then led 4-2 in the third, Fahey hit five winning galleries with casual ease to fight back to 4-all. Chisholm, 33, who challenges Fahey for his world title at Hampton court in two weeks time, persevered with his attacking strategy, retrieving miraculously from all over the lively court to snatch the third set.

It was Fahey’s turn to scramble in the fourth but although he again clinched it, he was beginning to look jaded against the ultra-mobile New York professional, who scampered fluently, returning seeming-winners and stonewalling even Fahey’s most powerful forces. Fahey’s frustration boiled over as he produced two uncharacteristically wild errors to trail 1-3 in the decider and Chisholm’s nerve held as he smashed a variety of skimming boasts to test
The champion’s concentration.

He visibly grew in confidence as he took the last three games to clinch his first Open title and bring to an end Fahey’s superb run of nine majors in a row. Now he is setting his sights on ending the Australian’s reign as world champion into the bargain.

Real tennis at Lord's - the Home of Cricket.

On a tour of Lord's today, we visited the real tennis court. The guide, John Adams, explained that the name 'real tennis' comes from royal tennis, as it was played by kings including King Henry Vlll. Lord's is the home of cricket where the MCC is located - all the great cricket players of the world look forward to playing here, and a tour of this iconic ground is a fabulous experience. The tour guides are extremely knowledgeable and friendly, you have the opportunity to see inside the spaceship-like Media Centre, the Long Room and the team Dressing Rooms where you can walk in the footsteps of Sachin Tendulkar, Brian Lara, Jacques Kallis and all the great cricketers going back to WG Grace.
