Hello sports fans!
It’s World Cup Soccer time again and most of the world is excited to see if their country will win. And everyone is also very annoyed by the vuvuzela. What a strange noise! It sounds like the cicada in Japan.
Well, I guess if America wins I will become very interested in the World Cup.
But is that possible…?
Actually, Wimbledon started on Monday and it’s great so far. Yesterday two men set the record for the longest match ever at Wimbledon; 11 hours! Amazing.
Another record was set by an American who served the fastest serve in Wimbledon history, 148 MPH or 238.18 km/h.
It’s kind of funny, actually, because the player’s real name is Taylor Dent. (But he lost the game in the end…)
Do you watch or play tennis? Who’s your favorite player? Or do you prefer soccer?
Leave us a comment!
Thanks for reading!
