Tennis is your favorite sport right? lol Well, mine isn't either, i would love to play CRICKET as much as i can.. because that's the sport i started to play when i was 2? 3? But when i moved here to the U.S. i played soccer and then tennis i started playing a year ago
Out of soccer and tennis, i prefer tennis

Re: How long have YOU played?

5+
I've started at the age of 6 but after one year, had a surgery, and had to give it up for a while. At the age of 10 came back, been playing till 15-16.
And now, (after ten years) trying to start again

Meaning I've played tennis maybe 2 or 3 times in my life. I hate it with a passion, but I enjoy watching other people do it properly. Problem is, I turn into a combination of Sanguinetti/Labadze/Koellerer/17y.o. Hewitt when I play. It's really not nice

Re: How long have YOU played?

i chose 1+, but it's actually less than that. Still working on serve and returning (ppl said i have good stands and style. but that's just nothing if i can't even hit the ball hard enough), slicing. like some ppl here, it's so hard to get a practice partner. haven't been playing for 3 mths now and i miss it so bad.
