    I don't know exactly what it was. I don't know if it was the heat, but I was cramping after an hour and 45 minutes which isn't normal and then I didn't know what to do in that third set. My quads were cramping and then I started to get it in my back when I was throwing to serve and then my forearms, so I didn't know whether to conserve energy or to try and finish it in three sets, but then  I got broken at the beginning of the set and I just tried to hang around. In the end I was trying to play without using my legs. I managed to get through. I need to work out why this happened today."

    The fact that it was the whole body would suggest it's something to do with my eating or drinking because if it's through fatigue in one part of your body then that would suggest it's conditioning, but cramping in my left forearm, I mean I didn't use my left forearm a whole lot today. I would expect it would be something to do with what I've eaten or not eaten. When the body goes into cramp, it's very, very painful. It's very soar, so I'm glad it didn't get to that stage where I actually couldn't move."
