I've seen it a little bit. I watched some during the Wimbledon coverage last year, and I've seen some live as well. I just think it's funny that as a disabled person I've seen the able-bodied game more.

The way they move is remarkable, I agree. I know I couldn't do it. Even pushing a wheelchair isn't easy, so to move round the court like that and put yourself in position to play a shot, I don't know how they do it.
TJ I am extremely thankful that I've never had to sit in a wheelchair, not even for a short period of time, so I've no idea what it must be like.  True, these players have specially designed chairs, and some of them have to use electrically powered ones, but it still must require a lot of skill to be able to move them round the court.  Also I was incorrect when I said that the only difference in the rules was that ball was allowed to bounce twice.  I now know that the second bounce is allowed to be outside the court.

I found this article very interesting, and you might too - http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/olympics/paralympic-sport/8716298/London-2012-Paralympics-wheelchair-tennis-guide.html

Indeed.  He could easily have said "I'm a professional tennis player".

I like all the sources of news Including the search options in twitter and google, I only post here. For selfish reasons I like AM on FB, not being British a lot of posts on MW are too long for me, because of the language (learn a lot, I didn't know f.e. what ""Dutch courage"" is, until Angie (?!) wrote about this...Smile ) And I like the separation between posts en reactions. Nice to see there are so many more fans of Andy (almost 1.000.000 likes...) on the different communities!

Some of the posts on MW are too long for us native English speakers, flowerpower Whistle  I'm glad though that being on MW is helping you because your English is good anyway.

Have you found this website?  It started only a few months ago and it's very good for getting links to up-to-date news about Andy - http://www.newsnow.co.uk/h/Sport/Tennis/Andy+Murray - and a lot of news articles are divided into small paragraphs which makes reading them a lot easier.

The LTA certainly have very impressive plans, but can they help produce more future top British tennis players?
