Embedded text or transcript"Ray" Casey - (the fastest "server" in the world) - fretting to get at a tennis ball.
Mr Casey has to come over here to play because no tennis ball in America will go anywhere near him.
Come to daddy.
I should think so.
English tennis ball leaves Mr Casey's hand in perfect condition but
At the first blow from his racket it becomes elliptical or haggis shape
And flies screaming across the court in a state of disorder.
After the ball has made a heavy landing it is never in a proper and fit condition to return and that briefly is how Mr Casey wins his matches.
I can't send that back
Mr Casey met and beat a gentleman from Holland. He not only out-served him, he out-trousered him. Which shows considerable merit when you come to think of what those Dutchmen can do in the way of trousers.
