Mmm...

...for I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed watching tennis.



Wimbledon men's finals were on this morning, and my father and I watched the match together while offering general tennis commentary. Having played tennis competitively before, I have such an appreciation for the amazing skill the players exhibit. Such pretty passing shots and slices! I'm also pleased that the serve-and-volley strategy is being phased out under the onslaught of faster serves - so much more fun to watch the point when it involves more than 3 shots.

Huh, I never knew you played tennis. What other sports have you done competitively? (Ballroom dancing, of course...)

;) Just tennis and ballroom dancing. Ping pong was more a summertime passing fancy.

Yeah, and I'm going to hope that she beats most of the Berkeley Ballroom Dancers, the next time they meet! ;)

::grin:: I miss playing Tennis. It was so much fun!

Until I got kicked off the team way back in high school because the coach didn't feel like training a left-handed player. BUT NOT LIKE I'M BITTER OR ANYTHING.

^^; Seriously though. I like watching tennis too. ^^
