Women in tennis | Bearded England managers | Socialist soccer | George Galloway | Glass houses | Knickers
Your report (Jack Draper gives Novak Djokovic brief Wimbledon scare before pressure tells, 28 June) tells us that Jack Draper is a son of former Lawn Tennis Association chief executive Roger Draper, but not that his mum, Nicky Draper, was a junior tennis champion and later a coach. It seems all too easy to write women’s contribution out of sports stories.
• While agreeing wholeheartedly with Keith Flett’s Marxist analysis of the England football team’s prospects (Letters, 30 June), I cannot help noting that no bearded manager has ever led England to success in an international football tournament. Perhaps a barber might offer advice?
