More Tennis Trivia

This is Arantxa Sanchez Vicario, winner of four grand slam singles titles and the only Spanish woman inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame.

Originally known as Arantxa Sanchez, early in her career she decided to add her mother's maiden name. Subsequent Spanish female tennis players have maintained this tradition.

If I was a tennis commentator, I would be a little pissed off with Aranxta, particularly if I'd been given this morning's doubles match on the main court at Barcelona -

Nunia Llagostera Vives & Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez v Lourdes Dominguez Lino & Arantxa Parra Santonja.

I was actually originally known as Rob The.

Now I'm off to find my lawnmower somewhere in the back of the garage.
