The Tennis Match
Séréna is crazy about tennis. At the age of four, she received her first racquet and her first trainers. Today, she’s getting ready for an important match. She’s a bit nervous.
Luckily, she’s the one to serve first. She positions herself at the baseline and takes a deep breath before she throws the ball in the air. The umpire is very focused and sits in his high chair. The stands around the court are packed. Right now, all eyes are glued to Séréna. But unfortunately she was so nervous that the ball doesn’t reach the service box.
The first ball that she receives has an incredible force behind it. She counters it with a brilliant backhand that sends it flying back over the net. Her opponent’s backhand isn’t bad either, yet the ball goes out. The ball boy hurries to retrieve it.
The game carries on and is thrilling right to the end. The spectators eye the scoreboard. In the end it’s Séréna’s opponent who wins the game in two sets.
Chin up, Séréna, it’s the taking part that counts!
