Tennis takeover: I'm addicted to the women of Wimbledon!

While the World Cup has been an interesting distraction for me and a bane for some of my female friends - just see my World Cup widows post from the other week - tennis is a whole different ball game. Firstly, I find it fascinating and quite hypnotic, as the athletes require strategy and strength. I also like the fact that I enjoy watching the ladies' matches as much as the male ones, although for slightly different reasons! While I may get a little distracted by the muscles and shorts of the male players, the women tend to blow me away by their sheer energy and presence on the court. It always inspires me to put in a few more hours at the gym, not that it will help improve my tennis game too much. The two women all eyes are on at the moment - and who I could certainly take some pointers from - are defending Wimbledon champ Serena Williams and challenger Maria Sharapova. Both of these stunning looking women remained completely focused during their match and I simply didn't know whose side to back as I watched their dramatic rematch. In the end, though I tend to like underdogs, I think Serena completely deserved her win. I also made sure to catch a match with Simona Halep, a young player who suffered from an oversized bust which made it difficult for her to be as active as she wanted on the court. She's since had a breast reduction and is currently 113 in the tennis world. She's not had much luck in this year's qualifying matches however, and despite some impressive tie breaks, didn't make it through. I have a few more favourites still to play, but it probably wouldn't be a bad thing for my productiveness if I stopped watching quite so much tennis for a while...
