Daily Prompt: Penchant
In response to prompt : Penchant
Of all the sports in the world, I have a soft spot for tennis. It began in the eighties when we only had two channels on TV , NBC and CBS. One day we noticed the players were playing a game called tennis, we watched this game. One of the players was Christine and the opponent was Hana.
The girls won their semi-final matches, Christine was the number one player, Hana somehow managed to win the semi-final match against another player, Martina.
The day was the last and final day of the tournament. Christine the number one player, won against Hana a new player. Christine won the match, got a round plate, which was the trophy and some money.
We wanted to watch something else, but both channels were showing the same match.
After watching the match for about an hour we learned some of the tennis vocabulary.
Somehow all of us turned into tennis fans. Now we all have our favorite tennis players.
This is how we started watching this game we knew nothing about learned the way it’s played by just watching TV.
After all these years, I can safely say I relish watching tennis on TV. I actually have a Penchant watching Tennis!
