Approximate translation In English
“I am in a bit of a pickle, as yesterday my tennis partner told me that he could not take part in the next tennis tournment which will take place in hardly a week’s time. I am outraged by the way he let me down so easily. He could have at least given me enough time to find a replacement. I have to cancel, it is a pity as I had the feeling we were going to win.”
