Tennis with Evgeni Plushenko by Suzae Chevalier
On the tennis courts in the
Land of a thousand lakes
Evgeni Plushenko not wearing skates.
He was playing tennis
with Ann, Ellie and me-
I took photos of Ellie swinging
Her hair carefree.
Then Ann took a photo of me and
Evgeni with his tennis attire
He was a gentlemen-
More than a medieval squire.
His coach Alexei Mishin-
I did meet-
I told him I might have Russian blood
He said you are way too pretty.
What a compliment from a coach
who made Evgeni an
Olympic World Champion
Thank you Ann for this
memory in time
Ann is an Olympic figure skating coach
who has had a very interesting life.
