All work and all play

It seems that my blogging duties here, and here, could be clashing.

A schoolgirl tennis player will have to juggle her debut appearance at Wimbledon with her A-level exams on the same day.

Katie O'Brien, 18, is hoping organisers at the tournament which starts on Monday will give her a late on-court slot for her match so that she can sit her French and Maths exams in the morning.

The teenager was shocked to find out she had won a wild card entry on Friday despite losing a play-off final in London a few days earlier.

I blame Wimbledon. Getting to play despite failing the entrance exam? A clear case of declining tennis standards.
