This tennis star uses bridge games as opportunities for relaxation. When she travels, she likes to find nearby bridge clubs and join in. She once said, 'No matter where I go, I can always make new friends at the bridge table'

She wrote the introduction to Audrey Grant's 'The club series, Introduction to Bridge!' She's also teamed up with another famous player in an email course designed to help teach bridge to newcomers (bonus point for this player too)

When defenders have a suit and one of them holds a doubleton,

in general ducking trick 1 and winning trick 2 will disrupt their communications and can prevent them making a 2nd trick "in the suit".

Declarer Play

Contract 6♠ West leads J♠ 

To avoid 2 club losers, you must set up dummy's diamonds. You need 3 entries to dummy, 2 to ruff diamonds, 1 to reach the established winners in the suit. If you win the first trick, you will employ one of the 3 entries at the wrong moment - while the diamonds are blocked. You must therefore duck the first trick!!! Suppose W switches to a club. You win with the A cash the A  and cross to dummy with a trump. You ruff a diamond, return to dummy with a trump, and ruff the diamonds good. A trump to dummy and you can claim. If instead W gives a ruff and discard at trick 2, you can ruff in the S hand and again set up the diamonds.
