I am not an aficionado of ladies' tennis but I watched the final at Roland Garros this afternoon.
How pleasant to watch a tennis match without (i) any grunting, (ii) any nonsense with towels, and (iii) this awful business whereby three balls are inspected before each serve before one is discarded.
But they do hit the ball awfully hard. And, at the risk of being thought sexist, I admit that Ms Ivanovic is fairly pleasant on the eye.
Who won? Ivanovic - who terrorised the Safina second serve.
