Folks, its almost that time of year again......

...........Sue Barker time!!!! She'll be gracing our screens next week on the Beeb with covering the Queen's tournament in London. She'll be at Eastbourne the week after. Then we'll have ultimate Sue at Wimbledon I can't wait. I only found out recently that she won a grand slam in her tennis career. Talented and beautiful

Oh no! Sue & Henmania coming our way again

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

you forgot about Rusedski's Rock

Sue was SUCH a frustrating player in her day. Her game was all based on confidence, and a bad loss could send her into a tailspin that lasted months, where she could literally lose to anyone. But on her day she was majestic, cracking her big forehand from all over the court. She won Roland Garros in 1976, in an admittedly weak-ish field with many of the top players involved in Team Tennis instead, but was also a Wimbledon semi-finalist, and three-times Australian Open semi-finalist. She peaked at 4 on the computer, was in three year-end Top Tens, had wins over all-time greats like Navratilova, Evert, King, Austin and Goolagong, but I also remember losses to the likes of Dianne Evers, Jane Preyer and Stephanie Tolleson! Sue Barker was erratic!!
She is an extremely likeable presenter, and very knowledgeable about tennis too, as you'd expect. I too always enjoy seeing her on the TV screens at any time, but particularly in the grass court tennis season.

can't wait to hear sue "barking" about Henman and Murray

wow that's surprising she always struck me as being a very confident and positive person who wouldn't have let loses like that get to her so much. maybe she has changed over the years She is just so enthusiastic all the time when she presents She is also a great interviewer, she puts the players at total ease, I always remember her on-court chat with Venus right after she won Wimbledon in 2000, was so nice and funny.

As long as Rusedski's wife stays away, I'm happy.

Everything you do continues long after you've gone

i love sue

but to call the french open field in 76 weak-ish is very generous. at the time sue was ranked 18 in the world and yet she was the no. 1 seed!

cant wait to have her on tv everyday-30mins a week of a question of sport is not enough!
