Dear Frauleine Merkel,
I would like to draw your attention to a story I read in the paper, which I thought was an example of an incredibly selfless act. Maria Hall, a young Australian, realised that German tennis has been in serious decline since the heyday of Boris Becker and Steffi Graf. As a huge lover of German tennis and Germany in particular Ms Hall decided that something simply HAD to be done about this grave situation. With no thought for herself, she decided to get on a flight from Australia to Switzerland (at her own expense) and spend several years with Mr Becker reproducing a number of future German stars. With 8 boys and 16 girls (enough for 2 DC teams and 4 FC teams) I think we both agree Ms Hall has done a splendid job in helping German tennis get back to its former glory days. Having heard this story, I decided to bring it to your attention in the hope that you might give this young girl some recognition for her hard work on behalf of German tennis.
Oh simply marvellous work, E! I really like Steffi too, daddy said when they both played at the same time it was called "the German invasion".
Oh, but I wanted to have more boys than girls. Am I one of those people you see as having more girls than boys too?
