We're fans

Careful readers will know we're pretty big tennis fans. Labor Day weekend has brought us a new tennis star to follow: Melanie Oudin. She's gritty and stubborn, just like a good dachshund. And, she's still a winner at the U.S. Open, and we're glad for that.
What's been bothering us through her matches are the announcers who seem to think Marietta, Ga., is some backwater place where kids only can hit tennis balls up against their garage doors.
Can someone please give Enberg and McEnroe a trip to the ATL so they can see it's not exactly Rincon or Ellaville? We've been to all of those places on car rides, so we can compare appropriately. Maybe they should go on a car ride with us just once....we bet Johnny Mac won't be making fun of Georgia again.

Hear, hear!

(Although I did practice on the side of the carport as a kid...)

Yep, but we doubt it was your only option....
To be fair, our old friend Hattie was really good with a tennis ball and she didn't even need a racquet.
