The news cycle in the tennis world moves fast—who can keep up? That's where we come in. Each Thursday, Last Year Today will look back at a memorable story from exactly one year ago.
Looking for love? Tennis may be your answer. (No, this is not another scoring joke.) The dating website eHarmony has come out with “15 Reasons to Date a Tennis Player,” as if you ever even needed one.
Highlights include “playing doubles teaches teamwork," “the flattering attire" and "hitting the ball back and forth is good practice for communication."
Another example: the recently reunited pair of Radek Stepanek and Nicole Vaidisova:
