I had an interesting experience playing ping-pong last year. I was playing against a ___1_____ opponent(对手). The score was 20 to 17 in her ____2_____. I won the next three points which made the score 20 to 20. I ___3____ my paddle on the table and thanked my opponent and began to walk away.

“Look,” I said, “ if we ___6____ , one of two events will take place. Either you or I will win. If you win, I will begin to ____7___ my skill. If I win, you will be unhappy. Isn’t it better to know that we both played ___8____, that we enjoyed the competition, and that we played to an even(相等)score?” This was a ___9____ ending for my opponent and for the persons watching this contest. It made ___10____ to me to leave with a tie(不分胜负)game, an impasse(僵局): no winner, no __11___!
