SHUE READY FOR PRO TENNIS AFTER SKUNKING JON LOVITZ: Apparently inspired by her recent charity tournament drubbings of Jon Lovitz and Melissa Rivers, the MALAYSIA STAR reports the 43-year-old actress Elisabeth Shue “is in training to become a professional tennis player. The Oscar-nominated actress admits she has always been pretty good at the sport and now she’s working on a second career on the courts of America.”
Shue: “It’s always been a dream of mine. I don’t think I’ll be playing at the (tennis tournament) US Open, but, by September, I’d like to be competing professionally, even at the lowest level. I’ve been training so hard, now I feel like more of a tennis player than an actress.”
With that kind of attitude, it’s obvious that Shue isn’t using Serena Williams, who considers herself more of an actress than a tennis player, as inspiration for her future endeavor.
