Tennis Anyone?

We are big tennis fans! Can't really play the game, but we own several rackets and we have a multitude of tennis balls that prefer rolling down the street drain to sitting in our garage.

Right now we are into the
U.S. Open.
We usually follow the Women's tour, specifically Venus and Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova. When we were younger Allyson and I use to get out our rackets to take a hit at the tennis balls Dad threw our way. We dreamed of being like the William sisters-their tennis side mind you!
Tennis isn't exactly prime time TV, so we only watch big tournaments like Wimbledon and the U.S. Open.
Tonight the younger William sister, Serena, was beaten by number one ranked Justin Henin, so we're now rooting for Venus to make it to finals.
We also keep up with ATP players like Andy Roddick, James Blake and Rodger Federer. I'm rooting for Andy to make it to finals in the men's bracket.
We always have a lot of fun watching the matches, it's one of the things we do as a family.
A fun note: My parent's first date was a tennis game. Well, Dad says it was more like a lesson. :c)

Love, Adrienne Renea
