Congratulations on your win. I played tennis as a kid. The "strawberries and cream" sound good. Do you have some extra??? Have a blessed day with your wonderful win...............

Great haiku, but pass on the strawberries and cream. Like oysters, I fail to understand the attraction . . . . ., but the birds love both!

I have the tv on and do my poetry at the same time - I watch a bit of the tennis and am enjoying the tour de france highlights as our Manx rider has come back after 3 years of illness and has won 3 stages!:-) hugs Jan xx

Love it, wonderful Haiku Jan. Blessings and hugs, sweet friend.

Yup... You've nailed Wimbledon, alright. Though we patriotic music-lovers might go for 'Strawberries with Queen!' lol. ~ Tin Lizzie and Charlie the Chump

And the people "love" it, of course. But in tennis lingo that's a zero. Only tennis could equate the two. We do love you and all that you do--I think having the opportunity to read your work has added 6 years to my life!! I'm smiling!

Perfect! It’s one of my favorite things to watch, Jan! Sorry your boy Andy is out - I’m rooting for Federer this time, since Nadal (my fave!) isn’t playing…
