This thread is getting really interesting
I usually just read posts rather than post and I'm not all that familiar with actual names vs. nicks so I'm happy identities are being decoded here
My name's Betty and I'm from Prague, the Czech Rep. As a child I used to live in Toronto, Canada so that's why my main subject at university is English studies and literature, apart form general linguistics and textile marketing. I love to travel but lately I'm kind of stuck at home. I collect teabag wrappers (I have the biggest collection in central Europe
), do weaving and play tennis.
I've been playing tennis ever since I can remember (btw, Lekha, I also have a single handed backhand, I'm a lefty, too
) and my parents followed tennis matches from time to time on tv. The first player I really cheered for was Lleyton Hewitt. I liked how he got completely involved in a match and made it a thrilling event for the viewer. But after some time I started to appreciate Federer's effortless, elegant and kind of mature style more, so now I'm his DF (dedicated fan
) I was lucky enough to see him play here in Prague at the Davis Cup - the highlight was the doubles match, Czechs won after a 5 set battle and if I remember correctly 3 Swiss matchpoints! Fantastic tennis. I hope I get to see more of him live again in the future.
