Check Out My COMC Cards Part 1

If you're a regular reader you won't be surprised when I tell you that I opened a package on Christmas day from COMC dated June 7.  Judge me if you like.
Part one is a handful of tennis cards.  As the years go by I find that I'm less and less interested in tennis.  I grew up in a golden age of tennis in the 1960's and 70's.  Since the late 90's my interest has waned probably along with a good percentage of Americans.  Maybe it has something to do with a lack of great American players.  Anyway, here are some cards of players I do like.

Ladies first:

The Williams sisters have grown on me over the years.  Have there ever been  any more successful siblings male or female than Venus and Serena?  I'm also sympathetic with Venus having someone close to me who is living with the same chronic illness, Sjogren's Syndrome.
I love Kim as much for her sense of humor as her tennis, 
Caroline, or as I call her, "The Woz" has won 20 WTA tournaments and was ranked #1 for 67 weeks has yet to break through and win a Grand Slam event.  She's another woman, who's personality and sense of humor I like, Caroline does an impression of her friend Serena Williams.
At age 25, Joker is #1 in the world and is already considered by many to be one of the best of all-time.

I never considered myself an Agassi fan but I do now after having read his terrific book, Open.
