GOD BLESS TENNIS the top players make lots of dosh and my 7 year old (For 4/5 years) was handed down some nice clothes from the parents of an 8 year old now whose elder sister was/is a top UK tennis player (Mum knows her mum and dad russian connection:)

Good quiz question for you here.

Papa was a top soviet union soccer player:))

If you mean Elena Baltacha, I thought her dad was Ukrainian, not Russian.

Got my tickets for Eastbourne on Friday, taking the little one as the other half has no interest in sport whatever.

Wouldn't surprise me; he's up there with the very top players. Maria Sharapova is currently worth something in the vicinity of $90 million. Although prize money isn't always on par with the men, her endorsements make her one hell of a lot.

Just got a text saying the Hampton v Wozniacki game is still being shown on BBC 2, sorry if I spoiled it

Bleeplet is 4 & really enjoys days out that is out of the normal, we went to a funfair near the seafront last night, I couldn't believe how loud her laughing was. A real joy.

I like tennis. I didn't used to, but then my girlfriend (wife now) persuaded me to try and play. I was hooked.  I don't play now - I wish I did. The best thing about tennis is that  there's no final whistle or hooter, it's not over until it's over. In the men's game at Wimbledon you can by down 6- 0, 6 - 0, 5 - 0 and love forty and still come back and win. Unlikely but possible.

Maria Sharapova is a pleasure to watch on the court.  She's not bad at tennis either...  Have to have the volume down low though because of her grunting.


Arguing with the forum trolls is like playing chess with a pigeon.  No matter how good you are, the bird will **** on the board and strut around like it won anyway

There's a new documentary due out in a few days about the 'Battle of the Sexes' match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs. Should be interesting - LINK TO REVIEW

Rafa Nadal is out. Beaten by some Belgian bloke. Good game though.

Its got you in its grip before you're born

It's done with the use of a dice and board

It lets you think you're king but you're really a pawn

Robson is developing into a decent player. If she sorts out her erratic serving/problems with double faults she could easily be a top 20 player, perhaps even more.
