It happened the way things are never supposed to happen in real life, like a sledgehammer, like a bolt from out of the blue.

  • I wrote to Mr. McEnroe, Senior. I said: "Here is the sentence once written by the immortal Bobby Jones.

I can only conclude that the letter went astray.

  • One of the most unfortunate things I see when identifying youth players is the girl who is told over the years how great she is. By the time she's a high school freshman, she starts to believe it. By her senior year, she's fizzled out. Then there's her counterpart: the girl waiting in the wings who quietly and with determination decides she's going to make something of herself. Invariably, this humble, hardworking girl is the one who becomes the real player.
