Yes, I know we are in the middle of Wimbledon fortnight by now, but better late than never! At least Euro 2012 is now over, though just to cheer me up, qualifiers for both the Champions League, and Europa Cup start this week, what a depressing thought!
No, tennis isnt a big sport for me, though I have my perverse moments when I show interest in Andy Murray, even now. And alright, it does help in the sense that the cricket is rained out again tonight, shock horror with this awful summer we’re having here.
And guess what? Its raining at Wimbledon, but there is still live tennis, on one court at least. But lets not talk about those men playing tennis now, lets talk ladies tennis. Back in the old days, there were lady tennis players who made me look feminine. And that was long before I even realised that I wasnt really a guy, it has to be said. There were one or two who were all woman (one was so buxom, she must have had a very strong bra!), but a good number of them looked like some of the male players lol! Oh, and shock horror, a good number of them were lesbians, either openly, or slightly less so. Stories got out, but, as nothing was official… Oh, and of course, one transgendered player, Renee Richards.
Nowadays not only are seemingly the vast majority thoroughly hetro, a number of them take time out to have babies! And yes, alright, a good number of them are quite pretty as well. Alright, there are still those like Serena Williams, but…lol, far less of them!
When I was at school, and for a few years afterwards, I went to a day at Wimbledon, but that was a very long time ago. Funniest memory of that, on an outside court, I watched a match involving a young, slightly loud qualifier from the US, not really taking much notice at the time. But everyone took notice of him for many years to come after that. His name? John McEnroe! And I saw him play his second ever match at Wimbledon, hows that? Ah, the memories.
The video, slightly obtuse, given what the lyrics actually ‘suggest’, but the video features exercise, and does include Olivia Newton John swinging a tennis racket, so…
