The experienced international player got desparate - he was tired. He said to the Ref in such a polite tone, "do you mind if I change my shoes, I am slipping". The Ref was a bit confused and asked a few questions, "my shoes are wet I need to change them" was repeated.
So where in the world would you find a fresh pair of shoes in 30 seconds?
By the time the Ref realised what was going on the player was out the door and roaming around looking for dry shoes. Alas, it was too late, his opponent a younger, skilful, fit player was left on court bemused by it all and a little stunned too. When play finally resumed this is what had really happened:
- The ball had cooled down.
- The younger fellow was bemused by the carry on so that no doubt got to his head.
- The "foxing" player had become more composed and recovered, gradually edged on to win 10-8. Whoo! That was close.
- Lessons are learnt in many ways for players over a squash career.
- That probably explains why maturity is reached later rather than sooner.
