Your introduction to Tennis:
Played tennis from a pretty early age, always badly, but always loved the game. My first memorable experience watching tennis was the 1975 Wimbledon final, when Arthur Ashe beat Jimmy Arsehole Connors in 4 sets. Only Sam has given me a better tennis buzz than that
Favourite non Sam match:
The one I just mentioned. Also the classic Wimby final between Rafter and Ivanisevic. Momo beating Henin at Wimby 2006 was pretty sweet as well.
Favourite Sam match:
2011 US Open final of course, but for a quick Sam fix when I'm feeling a bit down it's also hard to go past Charleston 2010 final
