Merry Christmas 🎄!
Gifts come in all shapes and not all come with wrappers and bows 🎁.
• Let’s start with SHERO from Scotland • Judy Murray. After more than a decade, they finally realized their dream of a tennis and golf center to be built in their home town of Dunblane • we also believe there is talk of a Sir Andy Murray museum. Also, there should be a Murray family museum. Coach Grandma Shirley? Judy, Jamie, Andy … congratulations on these accomplishments!
• Louise Pleming is based in Sydney, Australia. Lou recently won a Newcombe Medal. The category was “Spirit of Tennis”. Louise was a great player, a great coach, a great communicator and now this. She started a community movement for everyone to play tennis or move their body through stretching or yoga. She reaches out to the homeless and people with mental health issues. She named it “Rally4Ever” (check it out on social media and the website). We couldn’t be more proud of our dear friend. We had already awarded him the Gussy Moran Humanitarian Award a few years ago. We also honored Judy Murray years ago as coach of the year. We love these two dynamic women.
• Next is Sir Andy. He got a wildcard for the Australian Open 2022.
• Next up is Nick Krygios who also received a wildcard this summer in Melbourne…
So they all received Christmas presents in advance.
• Will Bernie have coal or magic in his stocking? Time will tell us.
• We hope Bernie’s wishes come true. He says he really wants to do his best?? Again, time will tell. We hope. I hope he knows that Santa Claus has been watching him.
• Emma Raducanu. The gifts kept coming. Membership of the All England Club. It’s usually awarded to a Wimbledon winner. And most recently • a global brand ambassador for British Airways.
🎾 We wish everyone a very Merry Christmas 🎄
