  •  Oh Tennis. I Got Her There (7+ / 0-)

    From when I was like 6 to 18 I'd spent every break/holiday at a tennis camp. I wanted to do it. Brought me great joy.

    I will tell her a story.

    I was 17. At a camp where I beat every person on the University of Illinois Chicago team. I mean beat them down.

    I was kind of full of myself .....

    The owner of the camp then put me on the court with a 12 year old "girl."  

    I had NEVER been abused on a court the way she beat me. 6-0 and 6-1. I am sure she gave me that one game out of pity.

    I had played a person 6-3 and 7-5 that would win the Big East singles title the next year.

    Women can in fact play tennis :).
