Re: Do YOU play tennis?

i picked the second one, though it's not completely true... i don't take lessons, just play for fun with my cousins and friends. none of the other choices were true, since i don't do tournaments (though me and my cousin should play mixed doubles), and i didn't just get started, so i figured that one was the best choice.

Re: Do YOU play tennis?

Hell no.
I am normally quite a placid type of person, but if you put me on a court and I screw up a shot a couple of times, you don't want to be near me I go nuts. I broke my racquet the third time I used it. Thought to myself "that doesn't happen when the non-Marat/non-Goran guys throw their racquets at the ground... but those guys LET GO of the racquet. I do have a new racquet, and the old cracked one to remind me... but I haven't stepped on a court in a couple of years

Re: Do YOU play tennis?

LOL Yeah I am... which is why I kind of see why Lleyton is as he is. We're both pisces... pretty calm in non-tennis terms... but put us on a court and we go insane. OK... did I just compare myself to LH!? lol my new racquet is blue and gold (yeah I picked it based on those colours!) so I don't dare use it, or I might break another one...

lol, buy a really cheap crappy one, and keep the Swedish colored racquet for show. i have a really crappy $20 one, so i dont care when i scratch it up (which happens often)

Re: Do YOU play tennis?

actually I've been playing tennis since I was 12. But I didn't take it seriously, never thought of becoming a pro. But now I wish I could have been.
