TOPIC: Wembledon Tennis - Are You a Fan?


Hello and good morning SR.

Even tho I enjoy watching golf and
other sports, Ive picked up watching
tennis this week.

Do we have any SR Tennis fans out there?

Are you following the Wembledon Championship?

Who do you follow? Is there a favorite you
enjoy watching?

Roger Federer? Serena or Venus Williams?

I recall back in the day when I was winning
stuff off the radio, I won a pair of Jimmy Connors
tickets to see him play here in Baton Rouge and
went to see him but don't remember who he
played against.

Anyway.....

The balls in your court now.

Feel free to share your own ESH - experiences,
strengths and hopes with us if you have any on
Tennis.

Cool PK....

I watched Serena and Victoria Azarenka where
Serena won to advance forward to what? Finals?

It was a good nerve racking hard fought match
with lots of grunts from the blonde headed player.

Have to go see who plays tomorrow.

I saw John McEnroe and Stefan Edgurgh in Pete's Palace way back and Bjorn Borg and someone else there also. Tennis has always been my favorite sport, and am sad to say I don't even know who's who anymore. Gonna try and watch Wimbledon this year.

Hey Nef.... Lovely Rose as always.

Ive never really stuck to watching tennis
but im interested enough to wanna see
who's playing.

Like golf or any sport we have to watch,
learn the game, learn who the players
are, get familiar with them. And that's
where I am with tennis right now.

There's enough action there to keep
me intertained and interested.

So we can learn together and whoever
else wants to learn as well.

Right now they have the courts covered
due to some rain but hopefully it will move
on. They also said they didn't want to use
the over head cover because they want this
tournament to be played outdoors.

With outdoor games, golf etc. they have
to adapt to the outside elements.

Hey 48heath and am happy you chimed
in about Tennis. See, I would never have
met you so to speak here in SR, well, I say
never, but I should never say never.

However, sharing Tennis with a topic
opened a door to a member ive seen
from time to time, but don't think Ive
ever replied to you.

Oh well, here's a good opportunity to
share a topic with someone new.

That goes to show us in recovery that
none of us ever have to go thru or experience
anything alone in our life again. Even if its
just watching Tennis or golf or any type of
sports on tv.

There's 2 sets of players on court now
which im not familiar with, so I venture
away from watching from time to time.

Tomorrow should be a good day as Serena
will be playing and im not sure who else at
the moment.

I definitely agree with ya 48heath that
the benefits of sobriety is absolutely
priceless.

I kept checking the tv to see the mens
semifinals and either I missed it or they
didn't air it over here on my tv.

I watched the ladies but never saw the
mens. Then I checked my facebook where
I have Wembledon there to check the
news and saw where that good looking
man, I forgot his name, caught a ball that
bounced in the stand and he caught it.

His picture was all over the place.

Whew, a good looking man..!!! lol

Anyway, today should be a good day
for the men's play. Then tomorrow
the womens final.

Ive got Tennis and Golf going on this
weekend to keep me happy and content.
All in sobriety..!!!

Gasquet and Djokovic mens semifinals
are on tv here in Baton Rouge. Gotta
remember that there is a huge time
difference between here and there in
England?

It's about 1pm there and 7 am here.

Yes i like Tennis & Badminton

Andy Murray lost to Roger Fedrer today but i wasnt dissapointed he gave Fedrer a good game it was close but he was trailing

Thought Andy Murray could compete with anyone now needs to work on some of his serves and i think he will win loads in the next 3 years his game is always improving Fedrer was on form almost effortless at times yet Andy Murray kept getting past him with some awesome shots

Great match bring on the final
