Match Point 40


I realize my love for Tennis when I was a teen. That time, I simply enjoyed watching it in TV even if I wasn’t familiar with its rules, strokes and scores.

Wimbledon Centre Court with a RoofThe first matches I saw in TV featured Pete Sampras and Venus Williams. They were so popular. Sampras was well-liked by everyone. I could still remember the 2000 Olympics – and Venus Williams upset Elena Dementieva.

Today, it’s all different story, folks. Tennis becomes my addiction. It’s already in my blood and soul. My ordinary day is incomplete without visiting these websites: ATP and WTA.

Even at work, I can’t help myself but still watch match highlights in YouTube. Thank God, I wasn’t fired for feeding my addiction! Who I root for? It’s pretty obvious. Their names appear in this page multiple times.

  1. I never liked tennis even before. My sisters used to play it back when we were in high school and they were so drowned to it then. Some of the tennis players I could remember is Monica Seles, Pete Sampras and the Williams. Are they still playing? For sure the Williams are. My friend is so in to tennis, everything he does, he associates with tennis. Sometimes I just laugh about it. Since I don’t have anything to do for this year, I’l try to watch some of his favorite players and see if they are as good as he says they are.. lol

  2. Pete Sampras and Monica Seles are retired. Sampras is still playing some exhibitions for his charity and the last time I saw him play was in Indian Wells last year. He and Federer had a controversial match against Agassi and Nadal. As for Seles, I don’t have any news about her. All I know is Seles has inspired Ana Ivanovic to become the professional tennis player as she is now.

    The Williams Sisters are still active but they are regularly injured. Serena Williams is the defending champion in Australian Open but she can’t defend her title due to foot injury. For now, I don’t have any updates on Venus Williams’ knees. She has not played a tournament after her semifinal three-set loss to Kim Clijsters in 2010 US Open. I miss Venus. She’s the first tennis pro who replied in my tweet and hopefully, I want to see her defend her quarterfinal points in Melbourne.

    I know that friend of yours. Does the name of your friend Dean? Does he look like Novak Djokovic?
