Songs about/mentioning tennis players...

Just been listening to Faithless' 'If Loving You Is Wrong' and the lyrics mention Arantxa Sanchez.
Random thought of the day...Made me wonder how many other songs mention or are about tennis players? 'Jump Around' mentions John McEnroe. Super Furry Animals wrote a song called 'Venus & Serena'....and I'm sure some band wrote a song about Monica Seles once. Any others?

Lol I'd forgotten about that. I like Saint Etienne!

Conchita, I know, I know it should have been.

Ahh yeah of course, didn't think of that one either.

You could argue Michael Jackson's Billie Jean was about Miss Moffett

"ich mag Steffi Graf" by Guildo Horn

it is a cover version from "how deep is your love"

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

And for those, who don't understand cyrillic those players are Safina, Dementieva, Sharapova, Myskina, Kuznetsova and Kournikova.

Wasn't there some German punk song about being pregnant with Steffi Graf's two headed love child (or something) in the early '90s?

I don't know, but sounds genius

Perhaps Cliff Richard sang "Devil Woman" about Sue Barker??
