I was trying to come up with a player whose first name started with EE and ended in SS. The puzzler was poorly worded, I thought.

tnewton, alow me to disagree. i not only watch tennis but also play it and, consider this to be a very good teaser.

In fact, the play with words makes it interesting and quite creative as well. I had a lapsus at first, all i could think of was Sharapova but, managed to clear it out. Keep them coming!
