86. You trawl through websites looking for pics of your favourite player in action in a match,because their match wasn't on TV or Livestreamed.

87. You surreptitiously watch live streams at work with a discreet earpiece hidden under your hair and then ruin the subterfuge by shrieking at great shots/exciting moments.

I can relate!! Except my experiences have been in a college environment, and every time the teacher comes around I hide the live stream window by another window only to get really angry and storm out of the library when my fav loses.

88. You stop playing tennis (pretending to have a headache) and goes straight to the nearest TV in a Resort when someone walks by and says "Federer just lost 1st set against Isner".

Re: You know you are an obsessed tennis fan when you...

89. When even your little brother from 3 years old tells you that you watch too much tennis
90. When you most of the times know who the people in the player's box are.
91. When you correct it if a commentator gives wrong information about a player during a match.
92. When you're already thinking what you'll write on MTF right after you watched a match.

100. When you stay on to watch a whole useless football match, just to make sure that you don't miss the tennis match that follows after.
