My new favourite person is Britain’s No.1 tennis player Joanna Konta. She’s played a brilliant game in recent weeks knocking out top seeds like skittles. She’s also a great interviewee who speaks with intelligence and great respect for her rivals.
Overnight she played her heart out when she came up against my other favourite tennis player Serena Williams. Joanna didn’t win but she gave it her best shot. She went in to the game with steely determination and as Serena said after the match there’s no doubt she’ll be a future champion.
My other favourite tennis player is Venus Williams. Who doesn’t love this amazing woman? If she and her sister win their next rounds in Melbourne it could be a Grand Slam Sister Act final, again. Marvellous.
Shout out to Joanna, Serena and Venus. Inspirational women.
