Something really awesome about Mel Purcells 1981 season. He lost to José Clerc three times in four tournaments in the fall, once in R32, once R16 and once Q. Some time before he lost in R32 to José Luis Damiani. A little later he lost two times in a row to José Lopez-Maeso, in R32 and Q. His draws at the time must have caused the comment: No way, José - again!
very interesting, that is quite bizarre
