    SPORT: TENNIS
    Film one is a 400' roll, 2 and 3 are One hundred foot spools.
    Apologies for the sound, but despite a fairly good wind gag I couldn't do much better than this, competing with a 20-25mph wind and jet planes overhead and unfortunately I was running both camera and sound myself. There are a couple of minutes of wild sound at the end of the tape which are as good as conditions would allow, so hope this helps. Original order was to shoot 400', but due to extra 2 sets I finished up with 600'. Ruffels led at the end of each set and looked as if he were going to clinch it, but didn't.
