    Has anyone been to a tennis match? The only one I have seen was at Nottingham. What chance do any of our tennis players have of making it to the top, who is going to take over from Tim Henman? :D

    Hello Jan,

    I enjoy watching the big matches on TV. A friend at college was a good amateur player and she gave me a lesson, once. She said I'd have been good at the game but I couldn't afford lessons or the equipment at the time.

    Are there any youngsters coming up who could take over from Tim? I don't know.

    What's the name of the magazine you take about tennis? "Tennis", I expect. :D

    Bye,
    Penny. :)

    Thanks for the e-mail Penny, I have the Ace magazine.

    I am sorry you did'nt take tennis up, you could have played for Wiltshire. I played at school

    I hope we will have a tennis champion one day. :)

    Bye

    Hello Jan.

    Thanks for letting me know about the magazine. I hadn't heard of that one.

    I met a lady in her 60's when out walking the other day who plays tennis for Wiltshire "Seniors". That's not what the team is called but I can't think of the right name at the moment.

    Frank's (myfranca) wife, Carole, is a great tennis fan - not sure who she would "root" before, being English and now resident in Canada.

    The Super Bowl was shown live on TV last night but every time I turned over to watch some of it the players were having a rest and a chat, huddled together!

    Do you every watch Squash on TV? There's a fast moving, demanding game for you! Makes me tired just watching.

    Bye,
    Penny. :)

    Hello Frank.

    I've watched Agassi play since he was a lad! How lucky to see McEnroe and Becker play. My favourite player was the "Ice Man", Borg. Still have vivid memories of him playing incredible tennis from the back line of the court at Wimbledon.

    Soon be Wimbledon and strawberry and cream time - and, of course, time for rain.

    Bye,
    Penny. :)

    Hello Jan.

    Yes. I think a lot of people follow tennis. Amazing how we can see games "out of season" for us - from all over the world.

    Who do you think will take over from Tim?

    Hope you're having a good day.

    Bye,
    Penny. :)

    Dear Penny

    I don't know who will take over from Tim, they say that there is one who could, John Murry, but the training for these kids is not very good for the English. (n)

    Yours

    Hi Penny,......... Yes I remember Borg well, do you remember him trying to make a comeback with his old wooden racket ???

    The poor guy didn't know what hit him with all the new young up and coming super stars, and there new modern fancy rackets, I felt really sorry for him :(

    Cu later, take care,
    Frank. :)
