Lesson time the man formerly known as Tennis Fool.

Jordi Arrese was what is known as a claycourt specialist. He loved the red stuff and was fit as and ran all day, every ball down. He wasn't originally selected, and Carlos Costa who was in very good form that year gave up his place, so Arrese could play in the Games, he set himself solely for this tournament and only to win the gold medal.

It was a tough match, 38 degrees and very high humidity and I have seen on GM, a few descriptions of the Gold medal match and it was a very good match, just national pride.

He is the Spanish Davis Cup captain.
