I had started my love affair with Wimbledon.
They wrote it that my moustache was insured for 13 million.
I chose to stay with tennis and they didn't understand that at the school.
You know, I eat, I ate pretty well anyway so, I'm basically living the same, I just curtailed the stupidity.
A few of us who are around the sixty mark don't play that much these days and if you are taking on a couple of guys in their forties it is very difficult.
I was in the main draw from the start, my opening match was on Court One against Jan Eric Lundquist of Sweden who was about eight in the world at the time.
You know, I was a regular on the Friday afternoon drill squad. Um, which... The year after I left school, I went back and thanked the sergeant major because I was so fit.
I wouldn't, a little bit frightened but throughout my life I'd learnt that when you're in the serious situations, you've got to try to stay calm. Because that's the way you get out of them.
So there was a fire inside me. And that fire inside you, it can be turned into a negative form or a positive form. And I gradually realised that I had this fire and that it had to be used in a positive way.
