We wanted the LTAA to provide suitable on-court and changing room amenities at tournaments; the toilets and showers were particularly primitive. We saw a need for more reasonable expenses to be paid to cover our basic living costs while we were on the road competing. And we felt umpires had to be provided for every tournament match; many times the lack of an available umpire had resulted in players officiating at their own matches. Other times, inexperienced people were plucked out of the crowd to umpire or be linesmen; we made very sure we didn’t hit the ball near the lines.

Unbelievably, if this story is true, the selectors were so distanced from the players, they didn’t even recognise the two best youngsters in the country.
