Australia’s Donna Lobban said she and her Scottish husband Greg Lobban would not be signing “divorce papers” after she beat him in mixed doubles squash competition at the Commonwealth Games on Friday.
Donna Lobban and her partner, Cameron Pilley, came back from a game down to win 9-11, 11-8, 11-8 and reach the semi-finals in Birmingham, England.
The defending champion, 35, said she was braced for her husband’s reaction.
“I might have to put up with him being in a terrible mood for a while, but if I had lost it would have been him putting up with me being in a terrible mood,” she said.
However, she added: “He is still the main person who is there for me, and I’m there for him in tough times too. We won’t be signing any divorce papers after today. We’re still all right.”
Speaking about a pre-match bet for the loser to cook dinner for a month, she joked: “I don’t know if I want him to cook dinner, actually. It’s pretty grim.”
“I should have made a bet that if I win, I get to shave off his mullet and moustache. I don’t know why I didn’t think of that,” she said.
“I’m gutted we’re the ones who put them out of the tournament. It doesn’t feel good,” she added.
