Tennis, anyone? Did y'all know that I love tennis? Love watching it that is! (Although I did once hit a tennis ball so hard that it made a hole in the net. I am one strong woman!) It won't be long until I will get to see Wimbledon on TV. (And it is Wimbledon...not WimbleTON, as I hear it pronounced sometimes on American television.) Anyway, I am trying to tell you about Andy Murray...he is now Sir Andy Murray, as of this year! He has a matter of factness about him that I find very refreshing. I have a video here for you...
There, isn't that wonderful? Does anyone else remember it? I saw that afterwards his mother sent him an email, "That's my boy!". I love that! (Maybe it was a text or tweet...I can't remember, I just look at the big picture, I try not to get bogged down in details, just like to get the gist of the idea.)
After his hip surgery recently, he came back and won the Queen's Cup in a doubles match...and perhaps will play in singles matches again. (Although not at Wimbledon, that will be doubles.)
In other sports news, the Atlanta Braves have been playing very well! They are first in their division. I sure do miss watching these games with my Dad. He knew every player by their name AND number and he would notice and comment on each player's "stance" at the plate. He even had nicknames for his favorites. (Remember me telling you that he noticed the player with the ax handled bat? I wonder how many people saw that...it is not easy to see the end of a bat when the player is at the plate.)
Gee, I hope Sir Andy Murray will not be too upset with me talking of baseball like this when this post was supposed to be about him. Something tells me that I don't have to worry...I doubt he will ever know of this post! Ha, ha. Sir Andy, you have a fan in me!
Okay then, WimbleDON should be on TV soon! Who will be in the finals? Who would you like to see win this year? Do tell me!
