argentina versus serbia

Lawn Tennis at Wimbledon 



I watched tennis this afternoon
was a great event held every year,
semi final at Wimbledon, an important game 
in the heat, perspiration fell like tears

Was a Serbian and an Argentinian
both a credit to the game
The Argentinian had an injured knee 
played with fervour just the same

He lost but his name will never be forgot
He played for his country with pride
went to 5 sets in terrible heat,
No energy did they have left inside

Djokovic  won, was one hell of a match
Del Potro lost but with head held up high
this game was an inspiration to all
they managed to joke instead of cry

Any young people learning this game
should watch a video to see it well played
showing 2 players at their best with 
A gentlemen’s game being portrayed.

Andy Murray a Scotsman from the UK went on to be Wimbledon Champion

    Thanks for inviting me to read this poem, Seren! I didn't watch this game but both players are amazing. Let's see what happens in the US Open with Del Potro. Ruben.
