So it seems that the game of tennis is really frowned upon for some unknown reason.

This makes me wonder, who all on PC likes tennis?

I love Tennis and I've never heard of it being publicly frowned on. Where did you hear this?

Everyone in our school says really bad things about tennis.

I usually don't use these words, but a lot of people will call you a ♥♥♥♥♥♥ or a gaywad or anything feminine even though it's the guy's team.

This is the one sport I played in school (three years total), because they didn't offer much else. Did enjoy basketball, but your class schedule must satisfy that of the coaches if you want to be on the team. There were never a lot of negative expletives said about any sport where I'm from, only towards Democrats, Socialists, and other religions besides Christianity. 6_6

Well then those people are ignorant. Tennis is a game that I bet you half of them can't play. It needs precision and power to be played right. Even if you can't play it it's a great game to watch and one that should be enjoyed by most audiences.

I played tennis for two years, and then sophomore year I didn't play because I heard we were getting a horrible coach, but I plan to join again (junior year) I and I intend to play senior year as well.

and I'm apparently destined to be a pro tennis player? (A story? YAY!)

Story: I was playing with a friend during this summer one day, and I said that if I could make the next serve I was going to do in then I would join tennis again. I made it in, but then when playing another time none of my serves were even close to going in. Then my friend said it was because I was supposed to be a pro tennis player. I wish but I doubt it.

&Mizaki - Yeah. I proved that all the time in gym class. I honestly can't watch other people play tennis because then I want to play. I really have no interest in the current pros either. I only know the basics about them. I'd rather go play myself than talk about the pros.

I was fortunate to go to Wimbledon a few years ago- before then, I didn't have much of an interest in it- and I learned to appreciate the game. I can't play to save my life though. XD

I'm sure watching it in real life I would love it, but I can't sit still and watch it on TV. >.>

I love watching Tennis. It's a very interesting game to watch.

XD; the trick in the serve is the throw. Make sure you don't throw too high or you'll be hitting it too high.

My serve is usually too high, but I'm pretty sure that my form is okay. That just means that like Mizaki said, my throw is too high.

I remember my old Coach made us perfect our throws. Just throwing the ball up for a week XD;

We had a little practice drill where we had to set our racquet on the ground in the spot where the ball should bounce if we threw it up right. Then we had to keep throwing the ball up and hitting the racquet. (I'm sorry if racquet is spelled wrong. I don't really know the correct spelling.)

OOOOOoHHHH! Tennis. I LOVE IT! even though i can't play to save my life! I used to be really good at my serves but for some reason i was kept hitting the net on the courts last time.
And whoever says tennis sucks shouldn't even be talking about it 'cause they shouldn't be talking about things they don't know anything about!

Tennis is so much fun, me and my friend play sometimes and spend the entire time yelling out random anime attacks :3. We can't play matches yet though, because he isn't to good at it yet.

I know this one dude who used to be all about basketball, but then he played soccer and now he's in soccermania land. i like the fundamental soccer. Tennis still beats it in my book though.

I think it's normal for people to dislike sports. I for one, hate Baseball. It's just another sport that people don't like. There doesn't have to be a rhyme or reason to it, it just isn't liked because it's either boring, or isn't the specific person's cup of tea.
Personally, I love Tennis. (Not as much as my life, Volleyball) I have great serves... ^,^
But, there are many people who I've heard say it's really hard to watch, since it's not really "exciting" like Basketball where people slam into each other, and do dunks. Tennis is more simple, hitting a ball back and forth. *Shrugs* Some people just get bored.

OOOOoooh! ilove volleyball! only the fundamental kind like beach volleyball.
My favorite part about tennis is the serve, it's really pretty if you do it right!

It's because when most people hear about tennis, all they see is Venus Williams on ESPN. Therefore, all guys who play it are feminine. Good logic, right? :cheeky:

Yeah i guess... but still, it's a little hurtful sometimes. but then again, that's what you get for growing up around stereotypes...

in other news... i wrote a poem about the absolutely wonder ful sport of tennis! didn't mean to advertise or whatever, but it is on topic, right?

Well I dislike every sport except hockey and tennis, but I don't go around calling people names if they play it.

That's the difference between people who respectfully dislike something and people who rudely hate it.

Tennis is okay, but I couldn't sit through a game of it(or any sport for that matter.) It's just that the constant grunting is so annoying.

I agree. The grunting is very annoying. Thank god I don't grunt when I play. Although sometimes I do scream when doing smashes or something. It scares your opponent, and it's a good de-stresser. ;D

I went again and played yesterday, and my serve is looking way better. Plus my actual hits are getting much better. ^^

&aurevesque: Yeah. Being my opponent is scary. I've actually hit someone before. >.>

It's probably the only sport that I'm willing to play without something having to force me to do it.

Or...any sport that involves alot of running back-and-forth, really.

Which is like all of them.
