  1. Hullo Mert,

    Thanks very much for all those pictures from Wimbledon. I’ve been in New York for most of the last week so I’ve only caught up today. Too many people in that town. No US Open for me, I’m afraid.

    On Tennis Channel they have just shown the 1972 WTC final between Rosewall and Laver. Fantastic stuff. They don’t play like that any more.

    Great to see that you will be coming to Washington. Let me know of plans in due course. I am supposedly in NC Aisle 16 Box 12 BCK Seat 7 for the week but they haven’t sent the tickets yet and it is time to start bothering them.

    Looking forward to seeing much tennis in August.

    1. John, I was planning on contacting you tomorrow to let you know I will be in D.C. but you are quicker than me. I am looking forward to seeing you.
