Five Point Friday

Here’s your roundup of the five most interesting things I’m enjoying or thinking about this week.

1.) The Longest Deuce Ever

In 1975, Anthony Fawcett and Keith Glass racked up a record number of deuces in a single game. Can you guess how many? I cover the answer and more in my latest video on deuce in tennis.

2.) Your Name in the Hall of Fame

How would you like your name in the Tennis Hall of Fame? A donation of at least $25 can make it happen for you or as a gift to someone else.

3.) 10 Min of Incredible Doubles

Doubles delivers some of the most entertaining tennis, and this video doesn’t disappoint. Sit back and enjoy ten minutes of ridiculously good points.

4.) Halep’s Wimbledon Diary

Last year, Simona Halep secured her second Grand Slam title at Wimbledon in dramatic fashion defeating Serena Williams 6-2, 6-2, in 56 min. In a recent video from the WTA, she shares her memories of a match she’ll never forget.

5.) Wimbledon Prize $ & Seeding

Having purchased insurance for the cancellation of the tournament due to circumstances like the pandemic, Wimbledon is in a position to distribute prize money. They’re also doing away with their unique seeding formula that has been a point of contention and sharing plans for the 2021 public ballot.
