I am reposting this tonight to join Chari over at Happy to Design and Sunday Favorites. As I sit here watching the women's final of the US Open, thought I should repost a tennis post. I just saw Chrissy help with the coin toss before the gals start. Go Kim Clijsters!!!
As some of you might know, we are in the midst of Wimbledon. Tennis Girl couldn't help but do a famous couple from the tennis world. When I started playing tennis around 1970, I wanted to play just like Chris Evert, we called her Chrissy. She was the darling of the tennis world. My game today is still much like hers, as I am a groundstroker and still play with the 2-handed backhand. Naturally, she gravitated to the "bad boy" of tennis, Jimmy Connors. He is still my favorite player of all time. He was exciting to watch and gave his all to the game. Like him or not, he brought fans to the seats with his "spill his guts on the court" attitude and play. Jimmy and Chrissy were engaged for a time in the 70's but the engagement was broken and they went on to marry others. Chris has been married 3 times and Jimmy has stayed married to the same gal for over 30 yrs. and two adult children.
