No divorce despite the couple’s squash duel

Australian Donna Lobban has said she and her Scottish husband Greg Lobban will not sign “divorce papers” after beating him in mixed doubles squash competition at the Commonwealth Games on Friday.

Donna Lobban and her partner, Cameron Pilley, came back from a losing match to win 9-11, 11-8, 11-8 to reach the semi-finals in Birmingham, England.

The defending champion, 35, said she was prepared for her husband’s reaction.

“I might have to put up with him being in a bad mood for a while, but if I had lost he would have had to put up with me being in a bad mood,” she said.

However, she added, “He is still the main person who is there for me, and I am also there for him in difficult times. We will not be signing any divorce papers after today. We are still doing well.

Speaking of a pre-game bet to have the loser cook dinner for a month, she joked, “I don’t know if I want him to cook dinner, actually. It’s quite sinister.

“I should have made a bet that if I win I’ll shave his mullet and mustache. I don’t know why I didn’t think of that,” she said.

“I’m disgusted that we were the ones who kicked them out of the tournament. It doesn’t feel good,” she added.
