That was some tournament, huh? (in what can be classified as the understatement of the year!) Epic matches, history being made, amazing performances, just inspiring.

It's so inspiring, in fact, I decided to write a little poem about it that I like to call "An Ode to Wimbledon." And it goes a little something like this:

Congratulations, Roger
On making more history.
How you got that break in the end
To some, is a mystery!


But break you did,
In quite stunning fashion.
To fulfill your life's goal,
with such heart and passion!

Congratulations, Serena,
On returning to Wimbledon glory.
But will you get the top spot again?
I guess that's a different story!

I mean, come on WTA!
Get with the program!
Shouldn't she be rewarded
For winning Slam after Slam after Slam?

Congratulations, Andy.
For making quite the run.
And showing the world out there
That you're far from done.

Congratulations, Venus.
Even though you fell short at the end.
But if you had to lose,
At least it was to your sis and best friend!

Congrats to the old guys.
You know, Haas, Ferrero and Hewitt.
Who, like Andy Roddick,
Showed they can still do it.

Congratulations, Elena
For putting up quite the fight.
With your semifinal match
Indicative of the fortnight!

Congratulations, Andy Murray
For handling the pressure well.
A Major's in your future, for sure.
That's not so hard to tell!

Congratulations, doubles winners.
For pulling off a great feat.
There's not much better in sport,
Than pulling off a repeat!

There were many other great examples.
So I'm sorry if In this poem I missed one.
I'm just glad I got to witness,
This year's Wimbledon!

I have no idea how to insert an "Alaskan drawl" b/c i thought drawls were only from below the Mason-Dixoon line.

Van, I'm user you got more in you. thats the deal with poetry, first a littel diddy, and before you know it you are quoting Oscar Wilde and wearing mascara.

Thanks racketeer!

Sure Mark, why not? Even though I think I tapped any bit of poetry-writing skill I might have had with this one!

This reminds me that we should have a Tennisopolis poetry contest sometime. Would you two be down for it?
