Hi Guys

Last one ....

Server in danger of defeat? That’s the score! (5,5) -R-A- P-I-T
Break point fits but don't understand the answer.

Many thanks

Game of tennis .. the server is in a position to lose the next rally ... that's a break point.

Got distracted.
If (in tennis) the server is, say, 30 ;40 down he will lose the game if he loses the next point. That is a break point.

Sorry, I wasn't really clear just above. Here's another go...

During tennis .. the server is in a position to lose the game if he loses the next rally ... that situation is called a break point.

Many thanks JimC

I was thinking of computer server, then waiter - everything but the obvious. Doh!

Quite a battle going on here tonight. It took me ages to scroll back and see if anyone had started on this crossword yet!!
