Good analogy, Nola! I enjoyed your post. Am impressed with your knowledge of tennis. I used to play in school teams but never perfected my backhand. Perhaps I needed to have read your article.
Thanks Jeanette. I used to play tennis a lot when I was at school and Uni, and I used to watch all of the 'tele tennis'. That was mainly back in the days of Chris, Martina, Evonne, and Bjorn, so a long time ago. I even bought tennis magazines, and watched part of one of the matches on an outside court during a day trip to London. My strokes never exactly set the court alight, but it was fun. I admire the dedication of those who make it to the top. At this stage, I'd say I have a better chance of getting a novel published than playing at Wimbledon :) Thanks for your comment.
