Holt's win fails to halt the rot
Friday 25 April 1997
This was a crucial Category One match for England, and one they had expected to win, but Lisa Lomas, playing in her eighth World Championship, was beaten in both her singles matches.
Lomas lost the opening match to Jolanta Prusiene after leading 20-18 in the second game. Holt then brought the scores level, by beating Ruta Garkauskaite, but the reigning England champion, Nicola Deaton, was narrowly defeated by Kristina Totilaite before Lomas fell to Garkauskaite.
