The second event of the Tennis Legends Championships series was held at the Ritz Carlton, Grand Cayman this past week. This year, the legends who are playing for the grand prize are Jim Courier, Paul Haarhuis, Mikael Pernfors, Mats Wilander, Wayne Ferriera, John McEnroe, Jimmy Arias and Todd Martin. At a reception hosted by the Cayman Islands Tennis Club on the Friday night, we had a chance to meet and mingle with the tennis stars. Ryan boldly asked them for their autographs and all of the players were very gracious and charming. On Saturday, we attended the matches of Jimmy Arias vs. Mats Wilander, and John McEnroe vs. Jim Courier. John McEnroe was not too badly behaved, except for when he shouted at a lineman for wearing his sunglasses, offering up that obviously if you could see better with the sunglasses on, then the players would be wearing them. He also berated a ball boy for not throwing the ball to him fast enough. Poor kids. All in all, John lost to Jim in a very exciting match, and Jim went on to win this series event. There are six more stops in the series - if you have a chance to attend, take it. It was a great tennis with players we grew up watching.
Another great Easter vacation at Cayman Kai has come and gone. A week of family, friends, sailing, kayaking, great food, boating and the annual BBQ and Easter egg hunt were some of the many highlights. On Easter Sunday, we had a crowd of about 30 kids join us for a fun day in the sun. Chef David once again manned the grill serving up his famous burgers. It was great having Rachel, Steven, Rebecca and Joseph join us from Atlanta again this year for what has now become our Easter tradition. Mum & Dad, as always, were the perfect hosts and the week was filled with laughter and happy times from morning until night.
