Love-love tennis

(From I love cute tennis outfits

I am now nutty about tennis, even though I suck at the game. On Sat night, I caught Wimbledon with a friend, and we oohed and aahed at the sexiness of Paul Bettany, lusted after Kirsten Dunst's cute outfit, and held our breath at the tennis-playing moments. At first we thought wah, Paul Bettany's playing is not bad, and then later realised that the actors had been filmed doing the strokes first and then the ball was added in digitally later. Chey. But it was a nice mushy romantic chick flick that I'd watch anytime again.

So now I want to be a tennis genius and look oh-so-cute in the all-white outfits (OK I admit, half the attraction is in the outfits). Admittedly, will never get to look like or play like Sharapova but I can pretend lor. In fact, I will be pretending tonight at 8pm. Hopefully it will not rain. Watch me run after those balls.

UPDATE: Bah, the rain has spoilt my dreams of pretending to be a tennis pro. Will try it again on Wed. Meanwhile, will go bouldering at Climb Asia instead.

I don't like tennis as I'm a brute force kind of player and 9 out of 10 shots would see the ball fly over the fence onto the road. Badminton is more my game.

One of my last tennis games was during JC at the Yio Chu Kang sports complex. The surrounding courts were being used for a youth tennis tournament. My friends and I royally SUCKED and were disrupting the other players with our stray balls.

Haha that sounds like me when I was learning to play tennis years ago. I always sent balls flying over to other courts, or worse, onto the road. I still do it now though, but thankfully not with as many balls as before.

I liked the movie too! But the balls were obviously digitally added lah..

The guy's car rocked too!

I totally digged the movie! Two thumbs up and made me feel like polishing my tennis skills.
