Hmmm, to me that means a fan of the Grateful Dead, so I'll take it as a compliment.
But they probably meant it as an insult.
Lendl was my hero. He was the reason I started watching tennis when I was little. I had a major crush on him. I wish I could remember how he played, I was never much of an expert. I remember he was formidable on the court. Fearless, calm under pressure, very fit.
He has always been my favorite tennis player of all times until last year when I started watching tennis again and found some new faves.
I'm forever grateful for his contrigution to tennis and for introducing me to this wonderful game and being my tennis hero.
Does anyone know what he is doing now?
