In the first game Skelt actually got to thirteen first but it was Wilson that got home in the set 5-2.
Skelt raced a head in the second set and kept up the pressure on Wilson's backhand. It was here that Wilson's international experience showed by breaking a shuttle which meant he could take a break. This gave him time to take heed of himself and when play resumed he was a different player. With the score tied at 10-10 and long rallies there was nothing in it.
