  Tennis girl sits exam before game
Updated 23 June 2004, 09.58
Katie O'Brien
British schoolgirl Katie O'Brien was set to hotfoot it from exam hall to tennis court to finish her first round Wimbledon match on Wednesday.

Katie, 18, from Hessle, near Hull, was sitting a two-and-a-half hour French exam at a London school before returning to finish her match.

She was one set and 5-4 down against Spain's Maria Sanchez Lorenzo when rain stopped play on Monday.

Her match was set to be the second on Court 11, where play starts at noon.

However, with heavy rain and strong winds forecast in the London area, it was possible that play was going to be disrupted for a second day.

Britain's Greg Rusedski was among the other competitors scheduled to play on Wednesday.
