Text:

President Carter's life-long love of tennis began with his frequent, fierce contest with his father on this Georgia clay court.

My father¨. was an excellent tennis player. ¨. I could never beat my father. He had a wicked slice ball which barley bounced at all on the relatively soft dirt court.
