Answer:  SET-BACK

(And, tomorrow we’re going to have another tennis Jumble where the answer is COME-BACK!  It could happen, folks.  Nah!  The guys don’t like playing into a theme like that.  If, by chance, I did just spoil tomorrow’s Jumble then I apologize in advance, to Mssrs  Hoyt and Knurek.  No new clue words today, but some nice jumbling.  I hesitated a little bit on “rocket”.  How about you, ralis95??? ;-) Fine job on the answer letter layout.  I had to think a minute on the answer.  It didn’t come to me instantaneously, like they usually do.  You always have to look for what they deliberately – because they have to – leave out.  In today’s case, it was the word SET.  Great cartoon.  I don’t think Jeff plays much tennis though.  The coach has John McEnroe hair, and the girl is playing with an old style racket.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
