Whether a participant or, dare I say it, a spectator - enjoy.

I can't helping feeling sorry for Andy Murray

#1 Post by Capetonian » Fri Jan 11, 2019 11:22 am

Never the liked the guy and I'm not the least interested in sport, but I had to feel very sorry when I saw him on the box this morning announcing his retirement. Tennis has been his life and he's given a lot.
One thing you can say for the French, when civilization falls they have less far to fall than everyone else.

Most 'athletes' recognise that their active participation in sport is limited.
Time to plan for an alternative career.

Like Fred Perry, his clothing range is still around.

Yes, but he's only 31 - that's very young to have to hang up his racket.

One of the 'racket's' that he has got into is a big hotel he bought.

I suppose a racket is jungle bunny noise. Is the tennis one a 'racquet' - pretentious Frog word? I believe 'racket' is an acceptable spelling alternative.
