the hallowed Grass Court Season - four (4) WTA tournaments out of (I'm guessing here) fifty events during the tour year, two of which run concurrently - the annual British Tennis binge.
High hopes of British success, usually, sadly, dashed on the rocks as we learn once again, that whilst most players see it as an anachronistic quirk, existing only because of the tradition of Wimbledon, they still
manage to beat the crap out of us.
And yes! Occasional success (Sam Smith r.4, Bally r.3), but what then..... "Oh shit, no more Grass Court Season"..........until next year when the whole embarrassing fiasco starts again.
Grass: I'd love to see all British players banned from going near the stuff until they have proved their worth on at least one other surface (although I shall continue to wholeheartedly support them on whatever surface they play).
Sorry about the rant; feeling better now.
