    From the Australian Open when we were treated to a great finals Federer v Nadal, to the more recent Davis Cup Tie in Canada - when GB won by default - see more about that here http://www.tennishead.net/news/on-tour/2017/02/06/britain-beat-canada-after-default

    I'm still looking forward to summer 2017 and more pictures like this

    Yes I know I'm biased lol!

    But isn't it great to think about warmer summer days?

    My parents met at the village tennis club. Mother used to play badminton in winter - indoors. Have they tried that? I used to love the word shuttlecock when I was little.

    The tennis club, near to where they live, is very good and has an active children's section, which is always good to see in any sport.

    They haven't tried badminton ... yet!

    They do have one of those swing ball's in the garden, which you need to be careful with.
    That ball can come at speed if someone has given it a really good hard hit OUCH!!!

    But seeing as it's snowing at the moment the swing ball equipment is tucked safely in the garden shed

    Summer term at school and tennis is in full swing ... again (this picture from last year)
    It was pouring with rain this morning when these two set out for school  rain

    Luckily the weather dried out and our grandson thoroughly enjoyed his after school tennis club!

    I think grand-daughter decided it was too cold and dreary to play tennis today Grandma, and decided on doing something equally important like playing Elsa the Snow Queen from Frozen! LOL!

    Due to rain our grandson (pictured above) couldn't play tennis last week ...
    He was due to play after school today ...

    I hope it doesn't rain Grandma!
    I think the weather has been dry, and his tennis racket has been used sunny

    Talking of tennis didn't Nadal do well at the French Open he now has his 10th French Title and has moved up to number two in the rankings ...Murray is Number One.

    I watched part of the superb match between Johanna Konta and Venus Williams. Two players in top form.

    Konta has astonishing legs, though I thought Simona Halep was a lot sexier. Venus is still stunning being as how she is ten years older than the other two. That's when I thought I'd see what they ate and discovered the claims that both are vegan. NOT true, Jo eats more like Clean Eating (The Horror!) and Venus is more vegetarian but eats chicken which isn't usually considered to be a vegetable.

    I wonder if there are any Paleo/keto tennis players? I believe one of the men but can't remember which one.

    Well ... I thought Venus Williams would have lifted the Wimbledon Ladies title today but it was Garbine Muguruza.
    Well done to her cheers  

    I will be routing for Federer tomorrow ... I wonder how the match will pan out Question

    ... I think it's Novak Djokovic who has a gluten allergy/intolerance that eats Paleo

    Wow she's come a long way in a short time! Already beat Serena too, well they are getting on in years I suppose. They were always pretty consistent, Muguruza is much more variable so far but then she's still young.

    Thanks, I couldn't remember if it was Djokovich or Federer. So many people in so many sports now turning away from carbs it's hard to keep up.
