Hey guys, can’t wait for my photo shoot with professional photographer Simon Harvey this Wednesday. I’m going for some funky fashion tennis shots and images. Hopefully he’ll make me look fab for my promo shots. Really looking forward to it – there’s gonna be lots of tennis balls flying about! Fingers crossed the weather holds out so I can use the courts at Hazelwood tennis club (where Elena Baltacha and Anne Keothovong used to train and I actually won the Ladies singles championship two years in a row aged 14 and 15 I think – although those two didn’t enter, I still had to beat some stiff competition). I also played with Anne in the Premier division of the Middlesex League for Hazelwood, but unfortunately they wouldn’t actually let us be partners and split us up with more ‘experienced’ ladies 😦
Anyway, am feeling a little cheesed off with the weather right now, which seems to conspire against my every attempt to actually play tennis rather than just sit indoors writing about it! Tennis really does help relieve stress so I can’t wait to get to the International Symposium in sunny South Carolina in a couple of weeks to hit with some of the juniors at the Van Der Meer Tennis Academy and the PTR coaches from around the world. Got to get started on my new business cards and leaflets to promote my freelance writing skills. Watch this space…. happy hitting people (let’s pray the sun gets his hat on soon eh).
Bye for now
