Rome launches out to make Tennis Statement

Rome, Ga my Dad's hometown on the verge of becoming a tennis mecca. As the article says would be the biggest facility in Southeast outside of Mobile, Alabama where Bubba Busey is in a team tournament this weekend.

I wish they woulda had this ready when I was playing there in rec tourneys in the mid 80's. Uncle Fremont deserved a facility like this as well in the 40's.

Rome had a big fight getting it's new Library about ten years ago; and you can see there are some detractors in the comment line of the article that made front page just yesterday.

At same time would be nice to know something this first class is just forty five minutes away.

Good location; maybe it will happen.

Meanwhile, at Wimbledon, Djokovic may take out Federer in the semis; and would be good if Andy Murray has another good run.
