Re: how does one rekindle his/her interest in tennis?

Start following Marin Cilic and you'll never lose interest in tennis

Tennis Fucking Sucks


Federer was the pioneer of first-strike all-court tennis. This is the real tennis and the beautiful game. Never forget the beauty of what was tennis. Nadull and Fakervic don't win tennis matches. They simply outlast their opponent with endless grinding and stamina. That is ugly. Beautiful tennis is gone now. Never forget the good days of real tennis.


I respect Pure Tennis. First-strike, all-court, offensive tennis. Players who succeed here can succeed in both an offensive and defensive eras of tennis. Impure grinders like Nadull, Djokovic, and Murray could never win in an offensive tennis era.

i felt the same way some years ago when i realized how muggy and one-dimensional tennis was getting. today i rarely watch the game but i still log onto MTF quite often, just to troll and piss people off.

Takes notes everyone. This man embraces the true ideals of the MTF forumer.

Re: how does one rekindle his/her interest in tennis?

Based on your posted age, could be you have a diminished attention span. That's not an insult; it's a sad reality for people of your generation based on the environment you grow up in. And to tell you the truth, I feel like MY attention span is decreasing the last 4 or 5, and I'm twice your age (still too young for senility, hopefully).

Re: how does one rekindle his/her interest in tennis?

Yea what everyone said above.
Love tennis, not just one player. That's how I have kept my love for tennis and I imagine others as well.

If you have an issue with a report/infraction, a user, a moderator or just want to talk, PM me.

I support Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray, David Ferrer, Del Potro.

Why? Because I love tennis plain and simple

Re: how does one rekindle his/her interest in tennis?

Luckily my love for Tennis got rekindled early in 2012, so for me it's going to be a while before any interest is lost especially considering the fact 2012 was an exciting year imo.

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.

Fourth consecutive Rafole GS final at RG made me less interested about tennis than in a long time. But Rafa's upset loss rekindled my interest. Not because of Rosol's epic playing but because that meant there won't be 5th consecutive Rafole GS final, and the bottom half is very open (I'm still gutted Ferru lost to Murray, he could've made it to final). And Fed beating Nole was refreshing too, there was two different players than in previous four slam finals.

I guess the fact all slams were won by different players was what made it good for me.

Re: how does one rekindle his/her interest in tennis?

Anyone who says "love the game", well the game is dying. For the future of tennis, look at the WTA. How do people support that nonsense? They treat it like a combination of "The Jersey Shore", "Sex and the City", and pro-wrestling. If you don't like that, my advice is to watch the Nadal-Rosol match every time you get the urge for real tennis.
