Review: The City of Owensboro’s New Outdoor Tennis Courts at Centre Court

My friend Craig called me early Saturday morning and said, "Hey!  How quickly can you be ready?"  I said, "For what?"  He replied, "There's a net up on one of the new outdoor courts over at Centre Court (off of Bittel Road near Shifley Park) and we can be the first people to play there.  Come on!"  So, I quit cheering for Serena Williams and turned off the French Open and flew on over.  And, on Saturday morning, June 6th, Craig Fort and I christened Owensboro's brand new outdoor courts.  And here's my full review!

Tennis Legend Favorites One of Chad’s Tweets [Photo]

YES!!!  I am pumped.  I almost never tweet.  I thumb through Twitter every day to see what's going on, but I hardly ever send out a tweet of my own.  But Friday evening I actually tweeted tennis legend Chris Evert and she replied!

The Craziest Shot in Tennis History [Video]

Ya'll know Benefield is a huge a tennis fan.  I have played tennis my whole life.  I have watched tennis my whole life.  It truly is no joke to say that I have probably spent about 20% of my entire lifetime on a tennis court or watching tennis in a stadium or on television.  But, in all my 41 years, I have never seen anything like THIS!  This is Agnieszka Radwanska, a current top five player on the WTA Tour.  Check out this shot she hit a couple of weeks ago at the 2013 Sony Open.  It's NUTS!

Tennis Players in Owensboro Rally for Indoor Tennis Center

I am a huge tennis fan!  In fact, I hate to admit this, but I have probably spent 15 to 30% of my total lifetime on a tennis court, in a tennis stadium, or in front of a television with a tennis court on it.  I got addicted to tennis in the early 80's when Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert were going head-to-head in one of the greatest rivalries in the history of sports, when Yannick Noah thrilled his countrymen and won the 1983 French Open and when Jimmy Connors took out John McEnroe to win the 1982 Wimbledon title.  And today, I am just as hooked as I was then.  Serena Williams.  Novak Djokovic.  Maria Sharapova.  And Roger Federer, the greatest player of all-time!  So, where am I going with this?  We may be getting a brand new indoor tennis facility right here in Owensboro!

Hilarious! Cats Watching Tennis! [Video]

I am a HUGE tennis fan!  And, apparently, I am not alone.  I can truly sit in front of the television for hours and watch tennis.  And I do it nearly every day.  And I travel to professional tournaments as much as I can, sit there in the stands, and wrench my neck back and forth following the ball across the net and back and forth along the court.  It's a wonder I don't live inside a chiropractor's office. It's nice to know, however, someone else shares my die-hard love for the sport.  Even if they're a couple of cats.  WATCH!
