    Tennis has been called a gentleman's sport. At first, tennis was a sport only kings can play in France and England. It was played differently from today. In 1874, the first tennis club was opened. Since then, there have been more and more tennis clubs and games in many countries. Now tennis is one of the most popular games in the world.

There are three main kinds of courts(球场)depending on the materials used for the court surface: the clay court, the hard court and the grass court.

The clay court is the most common in Europe. The French Open(公开赛)is played on this kind of court. The grass court is the traditional tennis court. The most famous tennis game, Wimbledon Championships, is played on the grass court.

The U.S. Open and the Australian Open use hard courts. Hard courts can vary(改变)in speed, although they are faster than clay courts but not as fast as grass courts.

At tennis games, we find young boys or girls who rush into the court to collect balls during the game. They are called ball boys or girls. They are chosen from applicants(申请人), and then trained before the game begins.

It is an honor for kids to be in a big game. They are often given a lot of free things, like clothes, caps, even shoes, and the most important is the chance to be near tennis stars. They will learn a lot from the stars. Many tennis stars were ball boys or girls when they were young.

    When I was a kid in Minnesota, watermelons were expensive. One of my father's friends, Bernie, was a rich businessman, who owned a large store in St.Paul.

Every summer, when the first watermelons arrived, Bernie would call. Dad and I would go to Bernie's place. We'd sit on the edge of the dock(码头), and got ready for a big meal.

Bernie would take out his knife, cut our first watermelon, hand us both a big piece and sit down next to us. Then we'd bury our faces in watermelons, eating only the heart-the reddest, juiciest, firmest, sweetest, and most seed-free part-and throw away the rest.

Bernie was my father's ideal of a rich man. I always thought it was because he was such a successful businessman. Years later, I realized that it was not Bernie's wealth itself but his way of dealing with it that my father liked. Bernie knew how to stop working, get together with friends and eat only the heart of the watermelon.

What I learned from Bernie is that being rich is a state of mind. If you don't take the time to dangle(摇摆)your feet over the dock and enjoy life's small pleasure, your work will probably hurt your life.

For many years, I forgot that lesson I'd learned as a kid on the dock. I was too busy making all the money I could. Well, I've relearned it. I hope I have time left to enjoy the success of others and to take pleasure in the day. That's the heart of the watermelon. I have learned again to throw the rest away.

1.How were the watermelons to the writer when he was young?

A.Not common. B.Not cheap. C.Not delicious. D.Not sweet.

2.How did the writer and his father eat the watermelon?

A.They ate it in a polite way. B.They only ate its best part.

C.They ate every part of it. D.They shared only one piece.

3.What did the writer's father think of Bernie?

A.He was just a rich businessman. B.He worked hard all the time.

C.He lived a rich but healthy life. D.He knew how to make money.

4.What do the underlined words "the heart of the watermelon" in the last paragraph refer to?

A.The best part of the watermelon. B.The writer's busy life.

C.The writer's decision of making money. D.The writer's hope of enjoying life.

5.What can be learned from the text?

A.One has to work hard to reach his goal. B.One should help a friend in trouble.
