My New Obsession
TENNIS! (you thought I was going to say Roger, didn’t you?)
I’ve developed a true love for this sport! I’ve been a casual fan for years, ever since I played one year of high school tennis. I had never picked up a racket, but my best friend convinced me to join the team and so I gave it a shot. Admittedly, I think I kind of liked the idea of a sport I could play in a skirt! 🙂
A couple of months ago I decided I wanted to get serious about really learning to play so I asked a dear friend for some recommendations on taking lessons. The next thing I know I’m hooked up with one of the best pros in Nashville and taking lessons nearly every Saturday! (Dear Friend, you know who you are… thank you!)
So now that I’m learning the fundamentals and getting some game, I’ve found that I’m becoming the sports fanatic in our house (and those of you that know my husband know that this is no small thing!) I’ve been glued to the US Open for the last couple of weeks and enjoyed watching the men’s final tonight between Roger Federer and Andy Murray. So happy about the win for Federer, but honestly I was hoping for a bit livelier match.
The official season may be ending, but watch out – I’ll still be hitting the courts!
What’s your sports obsession?
