Terrell Keeps Cool

Page was determined to win his match with Terrell and he tried several stalling ?ac?ies before the match to assert his dominance on the court. Terrell, on the other hand, remained calm and rushed to an early lead on perfectly placed deep smashes and three-wall nicks.

Page started the match well. But it was characteristic of the game that as the crowd applauded what appeared at be a f??l shot. Terrell would suddenly come up with the impossible return.

After falling behind 3-7 in the first game Page became very tense forcing his shots and attempting risky place-???s. He took every point as a match point and became more and more tense as Terrell increased his lead.

Down 15-7, 15-6, Page finally relaxed at the start of the third game and his new ease gave him a quick two-point lead. But Terrell responded to the challenge by taking 15 of the last 17 points.

"He was fantastic unbelievably fantastic." Page said of Terrell. It was an understatement.
