Oh Sylvia whenever I've watched Her play
I've had to shift uncomfortably in My chair
those wonderful eyes,the olive skin
that shining ponytail of dark hair

Her legs,yes they are strong
but feminine still
She's retiring too early
not nearly over the hill

Once when I watched Her play
in a black short tennis dress
She really caused Me all sorts of stress
when She lunged for a ball
I let out with a groan
just lucky I was watching alone

The only thing with Sylvia
I thought She was always in control
but it was a pleasant surprise
when when She came out with 'Arsehole'

Sylvia, I'll really miss You in tennis
even though the strain You caused my poor trousers
made You a bit of a menace:fiery:

well, I followed Silvia since her very beginnings, more than 10 years ago, and she was the reason why I got so involved with tennis, before her only Sandra Cecchini and especially Raffaella Reggi attracted me to (italian) tennis.

Because of Silvia fantastic carrer now Italy has quite a big group of great players, and we have to thank her forever for this...
Tennis will not be so interesting to me without my favourite player, I have already stopped posting and following, I hope I will recover soon the love for this amazing sport...for the moment I just feel too sad...:sad:

The surprise gift of Silvia Farina:

this occured to a ballboy after a triumph of Italian Silvia - she was totally happy and threw to the ballskids and crowd all the contents of her sport bag, the things of Silvia's were used in a draw which was daily done amongst the ballsboys of the gifts that they receive from the tennis players. The lucky person who gained part of the Italian's lot, got a huge surprise when they opened a plastic case which he had recived from her, it contained the underwear of the Italian which was supposed to be taken to the laundry ...
