Among tournaments of the Grand Slam of Tennis, actually, there is the French Open, "Les Internationaux de France of Roland Garros".
A long time ago, when I was bachelorette, all my free time was devoted to activities I had chosen, among many interests I had in life, one of these was Tennis.At this time, I knew every details of this sport. The player I appreciated the most was John McEnroe. With no particular athletic predispositions, he had the Vision, the vision of the tennis court, the Vision of what will do his adversary. He had the premonition, maybe because he was lefthanded, he had the 10th of second that lacked to the other player.
He played with his head. According me, it was a real pleasure to watch him playing.
I remembered watching an interview of his double partner Peter Fleming, who was also one of McEnroe's friends, telling that most of all he was "loyal". I never forget this word. In fact, MacEnroe could play with an other star of Tennis to win more matches, but he prefered to play with his friend. That is the heart of Friendship feeling.
He was also famous for his anger on the court. I think it was a personage he created for the show.
So, today , since he is no more on the court, except to comment a match, I choose this wink to remind him. (Turn off the playlist)
