Platform tennis is a team sport; as yet, there is no singles competition. Winning comes not merely from the combined talents of the partners, but, more importantly, their camaraderie on and off the court.
It was Louise Gengler, my partner, who got me to the championships by, more times than not, showing me a lot of heart when I couldn't hit my hat. I know it doesn't read as well, but how about The Forest Hills Gengler?
PLAY IT AGAIN
As you are doubtlessly aware, there are few sports in which pre-teen-agers, people over 70 and people of both sexes and all ages can compete in head-to-head competition. Table tennis is such a game, and the pursuit of it can lead to countless hours of enjoyment and competition. As an avid table tennis player, I'll be looking forward to future SI coverage of my favorite sport.
BRIDGE SCANDAL (CONT.)
As a bridge player, I know that if I were accused of improper conduct, I would fight the accusation through the highest appeals level in the ACBL and take it to court if necessary. I might not win, but I sure wouldn't roll over and play dead.
And although it's not as easy to count, his partner seems to have one or two more than the customary 13.
Not only that, your artist failed to show how many cards the two other guys at the table are holding. This is one trial I wouldn't miss!
