Default Re: Why do you like tennis?

First of all, I love tennis because it's so fascinating a game. It's a physically demanding sport where you need to have endurance, strength, as well as shotmaking technique, but it also has the tactical aspect. Even though playing tennis can be exhausting, it's definitely much funnier than e.g. playing computer games.

And interest for the game made me watch tennis. And just like it's interesting to play, it's also interesting to watch, there are players with different playing styles, and surfaces suiting for different playing styles. The game is the biggest reason why I follow the game. But there are also some personalities you like, even if you wouldn't like their playing style, and you start to follow them more closely. And I also like the gentlemanship in tennis, even though tennis is unfortunately losing that, players are having much time between points and fistpumping at opponent's errors. And probably the prestige of Grand Slams made me also to watch tennis, you know they're playing for something big.
