My friend Cindi Andrews commented on one of my tennis blog entries – I liked her take on her tennis experiences, so here’s her comment for you:
Hey, Pat! Got your email and was curious to see who you liked in tennis. I?m a casual fan of tennis generally but just love seeing it live in Mason.
I was there once right after Andre and Brooke Shields had split up and I happened to walk past a door the players used just as he walked out and he was immediately swarmed by obnoxious kids yelling ?How?s Brooke,? etc., and I gained instant appreciation for the crap famous people have to endure.
And then another time, I was watching an evening game with a friend early in the week ? not many spectators ? and we were in the front row and my friend reacted to a shot, and Todd Martin paused between plays, looked at us and said, ?That was a good thing.? It truly is amazing that you can see such world-class talent up close and personal in Warren County, of all places.
My favorite these days is James Blake, followed by Rafael Nadal. James is such an inspirational story, and the smoldering Spaniard is the only true competition for Federer.
Anyway, have fun! I may try for a spur-of-the-moment trip up one morning.
From Pat: And note, everyone – it is as easy as that – a spur of the moment decision – so Just Do It!
