Zucchini they call 'em in the States. I've got some growing that I'm hoping have not turned to the dark side. I like a nice ratatouille.

I don't watch tennis, but good for her

I think getting to the top out of "nowhere" must be amazing.

Yeah, it's a pretty remarkable sports story. I don't think you'll get odds on Sports Personality of the Year!

That was an impressive victory, huge congrats to her! I've not seen a victory that solid since the Canadian women's football squad took the gold in the Olympics.
