  1. Speaking of Tennis… who did you like to see win Hans? Mine was Jimmy Connors and Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert.
    I don’t follow it much now.

    • I always liked McEnroe.. I was never a big fan but I’d watch those 70’s and 80s major finals- like I do the majors in golf. Some great players back in that time.

    • Wimbledon was what I really liked. Those matches with McEnroe – Borg and McEnroe – Conners were great.
      I’ve never given golf a chance. I’ve always wanted to play it but never did.

    • I’ve only golfed once- 30 years ago.. I don’t follow it but I do pay attention to the majors. Having said that I don’t think I saw any of it last year other than the end of The Masters when Tiger won… I think that was last year… Have you ever seen the doc on McEnroe and Borg’s epic match?Pretty good.

    • I did watch Tiger a few times…because of the greatness.
      No I haven’t seen that doc…that would be great. I will look for it. It was must watch when they played.
