Clue/Question:  Double faulting resulted in this for the tennis star.

Answer:  A NET LOSS

(Very nice.  For a short answer I actually had to take a couple of looks before figuring it out!  Great answer letter layout, and the very familiar clue words were all scrambled very well.  Of course, Jeff is essentially pointing to the net for us, with a kind of delayed reaction tennis ball!  The funny thing is, without it it probably would have taken me longer to figure out.  I know most of us don’t really approve of boorish behavior, but I think we are seeing far too much censorship lately.  Too many of our rights under the First Amendment seem to be under assault these days.  Where is this leading?  Be well and do good, friends.  Just be very careful what you say.)   —   YUR

    Etiquette in tennis and golf is important for concentration, but I have always been puzzled that other sports don’t require it. Would be kind of funny to see quiet in a European soccer game or an American boxing match! Anyway, puzzle was pretty easy today and timely!

    To a certain extent, I agree. But, most of us love our bad boys and clowns! To me, they shouldn’t penalize Serena for giving an emphatic “C’mon!” or “Bring it!” when they let so many of the women get away with this ridiculous grunting!

    Remember when Chrissy Everett started with the 2 hand backhand! What a scandal! And the women started wearing colored tennis dresses? Oooooooo! Bad! LOL Yes, YUR, that stuff does make it more fun, I agree!

    Tennis was too staid, stiff, prim and proper for a long long time. The bad boys, different outfits, and the more attractive females have made the game much more popular over the years.
