Picture this. You are playing against a top player. You are holding your own in the game. Then there are 4 points in succession like this......

That's the exact word to describe it LOL.

The LP player's name is Nigel Eckersley. He's in his mid-sixties now, but was an England international in his youth. He's kept himself very fit and is one of the very few TT ex-internationals that have never stopped playing.

First 3 points are just bad luck, the fourth point has nothing to do with long pips LOL
Hm....the height of the service toss look questionable

The title should have had a comma after long pips. In other words, it's hard enough having to deal with a very good opponent skilled with long pips. But add some luck and hence the frustration.
