Goldfinch60

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.

        was that a hit or a strike?

        • Goldfinch60

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

            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.
