French Letter (23)

A Road Less Travelled
'A French Letter'

4th of June 2016

After an overnight shower, the weather has now changed once again, however this time its for the better. Its still overcast but the chilling wind from the north has now changed to a gentle warm Sirocco breeze from the south.

The French news channels were full of the death of Mohammed Ali. He was an amazing fighter not only in the ring but for human rights and against the prejudice over the colour of someone's skin. The 'greatest' was elected by the British public as the sports personality of the century. 


The lack of moving on from 'Aires' to 'Aires' every few days has given me chance to watch the coverage of the Isle of Man TT on Channel 4. The various practice races have been very exciting with higher than usual speeds being achieved in practice, mainly due to the good weather. The racing starts on Monday.

Today was the ladies day of the French open championship at Roland Garros. It was a very good match. The reigning champion and world number one, Serena Williams was beaten in straight sets by Garabina Muguruza. Whilst our own Andy Murray has made his way through for the first time into the final of the men's French open championship. Its the men's final tomorrow at Roland Garros. His opponent is the world number one Novak Djokovic but Andy did win at their last meeting.
