Wimbledon is finally back! - 06/23/14
There's no sport I love more than tennis .. oh wait, a minute, it's Paul Jones that is the tennis fanatic in the Sports Department at Fox 17. Still, there's something about the tournament in England during the Summer that can capture any sports fan's attention. The truth is, my interest in tennis has gone down over the last decade for the same reason as many - not enough competitive American players.
Why is it? I remember growing up, and the stable of US players was incredible. Agassi, Sampras, and Courier were the best but my personal favorite was Michael Chang. Watching him beat Ivan Lendl at the French Open was awesome. Relive his awesome underhand serve moment here.
Hoping there are more great moments to remember at this year's Wimbledon!
