Patti Hogan's match with Cherry Panton has fireworks galore, with the Irish temper of Hogan going off on linesmen and the umpire. Her conduct was so fiery she was reported to Mike Gibson, the tournament referee. Gibson didn't mete out any punishment, noting that, "She [Hogan] was in tears after being told off by a friend when she came off court. I tohught there was no point in taking this another stage further."
Hogan had asked for several linesmen to be removed and hit a ball a ball in anger that just missed Panton. For good measure she directed a few choice words at the umpire.
"What I would like to to say is unprintable", declared Cherry Panton.
The crowd and Nell Truman took care of Hogan in the quarters. Clapping derisively at times, fans were in no mood for misbehavior. Hogan started in at 6-6 all in the first when the umpire told her, "Ball behind you-hold it." The seemingly innoucuous remark set off Hogan, who started a directing heated words at the umpire and Truman. Nell replied, "If you want to win a match that badly I will retire", and started to put on her sweater to go.
Referee Mike Gibson was summoned to the court to sort out affairs. He wasn't so complacent as the day before, particularly after words were directed at him. Hogan said, "I hope you're bloody well satisfied."
Patti lost a close first set and quickly spun downward, leaving the court in tears for a second day in a row.
Reflecting after the match Hogan said, "I know I am playing badly and I feel things are getting worse, but I have no one to talk to or help me get out of this bad spell. If something doesn't change soon I might as well give up the game."
The next day Hogan was disqualified from the mixed competition.
