Landy to run one mile for our fun (they were first
people who run mile below 4 minutes, and the thrill today would be
whether they run mile below 8 minutes...)

The whole idea of paying middle aged tennismultimillionaires, at least
in the senior circuit, big bugs and only for keeping themselfs fit,
really feels for the ordinary middle aged amateurplayer a little bit
repulsive…. and don´t missunderstand me; I´m not jealous, not very
much, anyway.

Somehow I respect Ivan Lendl, because he has not been involved to such a
clownism….
