The three on the right were our opponents. They were SO sweet, classy and had great sportsmanship! It was awesome to play against them. We lost our line, line three won theirs, and then we stayed to watch the marathon line two match which we ended up winning in a tie breaker!
They didn't moan about one single thing. On the contrary- there was a lot of love on the court!
Win or lose - these ladies embody the "spirit" of the sport. For us amateurs - it's about camaraderie, exercise and have a little fun! When winning becomes the goal - at all costs - then the joy subsides.
Today - I feel deep appreciation for the kind ladies of tennis - thank you for you etiquette and civility. I am grateful for you!!
