This past two weeks has had me glued to the television, watching my favourite tennis stars in action.
I love everything about the annual Wimbledon tennis tournament: the games, the characters, the idiosyncrasies’ of the weather. These are the best athletes in the tennis world and, for a short time, we are lucky enough to be able to watch them daily on our screens. One year I actually got to visit in person and the atmosphere, even in the outside courts, was all encompassing.
The players make it look so easy, dropping those shots right on the line, just in the edge of the court. In reality they practise day in, day out throughout the year, spend time in the gym, on the track, not to mention on that all important court. It’s all those hidden minutes, hours, days and weeks behind the scenes, that makes them shine.
