How long have you been playing tennis? It’s been five years now. What about you? Then definitely not as good as you. Me,
I’ve been playing it for just 6 months. It’s a good game isn’t it? But I am older now
and I get tired after just a couple of matches. I am new to it, so I gotta build skill and stamina.
I’ve lost the last 5 games in straight sets. That’s too bad! But I gotta say you’ve got sportsman’s spirit. Thanks. I wish I had somebody to coach me. Don’t worry mate. I can coach you. Would you? That’d be excellent. I’ve heard you have amazing service. Can’t deny that. I’ve won many matches thanks to my service. Wow! That was some game yesterday between Matt and Blake! Yeah! Blake’s one of the best players in our club. It
was a surprise that Matt stayed in the game so long. Yep. I thought Matt would lose badly when he lost
the first game to love, but he bounced back. Yeah! He made great use of his height. He
has a long-reach, and an amazing backhand. You bet Jack! He did a deuce in the next game, and won it. That was surprising. I am sure Blake was shocked to see that. I think if Matt had been more experienced and
hadn’t served so many faults, he’d have won. I agree, he didn’t drop many balls, but he serves terribly. Yeah! But he can improve if he works hard. Serena and Venus Williams are the most
famous sisters in the tennis world. Yeah, they are two of the most iconic players of all times. Who do you think is a better player? Undoubtedly Serena. She’s won more grand slams than Venus. Yeah. She must have the benefit of
Venus’s experience. She’s amazing. But Serena is good on both clay and grass,
and she’s got amazing serves and returns. Venus’s got that too. In fact she holds the
record for the fastest serve by a female player. Really? I didn’t know that. So both of them are pretty amazing! Yeah. They are. They are also amazing
in doubles and mixed doubles teams. All we do all day is work and watch TV. We
should start thinking about our health. I never thought about that, but you’re right.
What do you think we should do? I think we should play some sort of sport. I know. What about tennis? We can play that. But there’s no court nearby. Yeah there is. Just 2 miles away. But I don’t have a racket! Sam! You can buy one! And I don’t have tennis balls either. You can get tennis balls when you get a racket. Well, I am looking for easy sport. Like golf! Sam! You are the laziest guy I’ve ever seen. How long have you been playing tennis? I’ve lost the last 5 games in straight sets. I’ve heard you have amazing service.

  1. Very helpful. This is a great idea since Tennis is an International Sport, and many coaches will travel from all over the world to Coach. Thanks!
