How was the last game you played?
“I played tennis yesterday with my 14-year-old sister, Brianna. It was a pretty good game, and I beat her.”
Do you warm up before playing?
“I always warm up. I work with armbands, and I jump rope.”
What do you eat before playing a game?
“I always eat pasta and chicken.”
What was your best shot in the game with your sister?
