Wall of Power.

The ball was struck,

Struck with such power,

But it just came back,

Came back faster.

What skill was shown,

Shown by these ladies,

Hitting a yellow ball,

Over the green sward.

The ball kept coming back,

Like it had hit a wall,

A wall that had power,

That sent it back faster,

That wall of skill.


 “I’ll bet that that is the fastest wall she has ever hit a ball against” John McInroe said this when Joanna Konta played against Simona Halop at Wimbledon.

    A fine write G/F. I may not have heard that comment though, on account I probably nodded off if watching tennis! lol.

      The men's final today Orchi, stay awake for this one.

    • onepauly

      was that a hit or a strike?

      • Goldfinch60

        Hit I am afraid and I wouldn't argue with either of them!

        I would say it's 40 love to you followed by game, set and match. a great tennis topic which needs to be written in poem form. well done.

        • Goldfinch60

          Thank you Kevin, much appreciated.

        • Michael Edwards

          You must be talking about some sort of bat and ball game :) I can feel the excitement.

          • Goldfinch60

            Yes a game of some sort. Don't worry it all ends today and we will be back to the bad news.
