Tennis anyone?



I have covered a few high school tennis events in recent weeks, and watching these players go at it beings me back to when I was their age and the sport was huge in the United States. Major tournaments were must-see. The Bobby Riggs-Billie Jean King oddity was massive. Some of the personalities were larger than life.

You had to wait awhile at crowded tennis courts at high schools and local park districts to play.
