Wimbledon

It starts Monday morning....


so I guess we know what I'll be blogging about for a couple weeks


Blake Plays Roddick in the 4th round.... Assuming they both can get there.


Lindsey davenport will play dementiava in the 3rd.... Lindsey had a kid just a bit ago.... Love her to death as I say this, "good to see the old girl play"


Wayn Odesnic, our new found favorite from The French, Plays neimenen first.. Then matheiue(i've bastardized every Foreign name... only worse than I would if I actually said them). If he can get through then he will play Roddick or Blake.... Yes, all the American men are in the same quarter draw.


The Williams sisters will definitely be out for some Post French Revenge.


Some unknowns Jessie Lavine, and jonh isner, Vanja King....


Some Qualifiers...

Raquel Kops-Jones defeated in the first round of the qualifiers... that is sad.

Lilia Osterloh USA (10) Defeated in the "Second Round" of the qualifiers

Abigail Spears, out in the firs round

Hugo Armando out in the first round of the qualifiers


Kevin Kim

Jessie Lavine are both American men making it through the qualifiers.



Jill Crabas, There have been many comments in the past 5 years about the lack of American woman...



And on that note, I demand that Ryan and Kelly start both his daughters immediately with tennis rackets, Sure Swimming is good, and it will have to be fit in, but...... For woman there is more money in tennis than about any other pro sport... maybe Golf... but that is a stupid sport.

You know...Ryan was quite the tennis player when he was younger. So I'm sure the girls would have a natural talent.

Fantastic,....

I don't know how to phrase this, I think you have handled/are handling the swimming thing Really well. Not that you need my affirmation, but I think you're doing a great job as a mother.

Kelly said...

Thank you!

Everyone knows that even though singles players get all the cash, doubles is way more exciting...
Someone's going to have to put his "career" as an amateur bike racer on hold to nurture their talents.
Life if full of tough choices.

Not that I know anything, or that you're not way more together than I am.

But... Sounds like a great way to teach and bond with your daughters as they grow.

and I'd suspect you could fit some time in, around the career.

In the 80's they used to cover doubles all the time.... but also the big players used to play both...
So, now it's too hard to get into
