There is tennis not on live stream?

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

Nasty gaitare.

I voted "occasionally" when I meant to vote "all year round". The singularity of the Singapore weather confused me.

Re: Do you play tennis ?

The right half of my body plays Tennis. Never touch the racquet with my left arm, that would be criminal.

Tennis isn't Tennis without a one handed backhand

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

Re: Do you play tennis ?

Started in 1957 with a wooden racquet with a broken string on a clay court that had been abandoned by a local church club, - after being inspired by seeing Althea Gibson win Wimbledon on our new black and white 17'' TV.
Still playing at least twice a week in winter and as many summer evenings as my aching hip muscles will allow.

Hope you don't take it amiss, I don't mean anything bad, just kind of taken aback how easy it is to completely misjudge a person on the net.
