Jan Kodes, Wimbledon Champ, Makes A Trade With Derek Sanderson

from World Tennis Magazine,

I am Derek Sanderson, a Boston Bruins hockey player.” He was one of the NHL’s most productive offensive players of that era, won Stanley Cup twice in 1970 and 1972!

I thought to myself: “Gee, this is unbelievable; such a star is sitting next to me!” We engaged in a conversation and discussed many topics – hockey, tennis… and suddenly I remembered: Damn, my brother-in-law and the skates! Should I ask Derek about it or should I not? Wouldn’t it be embarrassing?

At last I pulled the courage and asked: “Listen, would you be able to help me with something?” “What do you need?”

I explained to him that my brother-in-law was also a hockey player and needed some decent skates; at that he said: “Look, that’s not a problem. You give me your racket, I’ll give you skates.”
