    Tennis Playing Celebrities

    one member proposed to open such a thread, to discuss and talk about celebrities that hack a ball play tennis just like us better then we do.
    My contribution:
    Katherine Hepburn was a tennis fan. She played every day (when possible). One thing: she played allowing TWO bounces, and if not, she didn't.
    She was Katherine Hepburn, ok?

    Humphrey Bogart's first role ever was opening a door into a room and saying the famous words "Tennis anyone?". I forget the film. He also hit a few every once in a while.

    Once, I interviewed the owner of an LA tennis club (he also started the Tennis Channel), and he was impressed with Arnold Schwarzenegger. Said he hit ball 100 just as hard as ball one. So I guess Ahnuld plays, or did.

    What about the (in)famous Elizabeth Shue?

    I know Dirk Nowitzki of the Dallas Mavericks NBA team used to play. Not sure if he still does.

    I got to interview Elisabeth Shue at Indian Wells! She said her goal was not to play at the US Open, but to be the lowest-ranked played in the ITF. She's abandoned it.

    Dirk was interviewed in Miami during the SEO. He said something to the tune of "I have a big serve and big forehand but not much else."

    On the 60 Minutes special last night in memory of Mike Wallace, they talked about Mike playing tennis with Johnny Carson and how competitive Johnny Carson was (hated to lose). Johnny was a mainstay in the stands at Wimbledon over the years.
