    I Think Professional Tennis Is One of the Best Sports!

    Someone asked a question which sport did I think was the best. I think it's Tennis for the following reasons: It's an international sport. People from different countries play each other based on their previous success on the court. There's different ways to participate...

    Next Round

    So Roger Federer is through to the next round in the US Open. I would like either him, Rafa, A - Rod or, if he's there, Marat Safin to win. Just not Andy Murray.

    Melanie Oudin

    Yesterday, 17 year old Melanie Oudin from Georgia, beat Elena Dementeva(sp?) at the U.S. Open in New York.  It was an AWESOME match.  I love to watch Melanie play.  She is aggressive and so competitive.  I hope she goes far at the Open this year.

    I'd Forgotten How Fun It Was!

    I joined the tennis club and today was the first practice/day. It's a 'come whenever you can' type thing so it works. I hadn't played much in the past year or so, so I was pretty rusty but it was a LOT of fun. And well, I'm not so great to begin with so even when I do get back to...

    I just watched the match between Nadal and Monfils. Thankfully, Rafa won. I would like to see him win the whole US Open now. He's back at no. 2 now, since Murray was knocked out of the competition (YES!). Come on, Rafa!

    I am a tennis addict.

    Not sure if there's any such thing as tennis addiction. I play and watch tennis a lot. I try to talk to people about the beauty of the sport and many i must admit don't quite see the excitement about it. Tennis attracts me in so many ways. The sound of a good strike of the ball...

    Who wins? Roger Federer or Novak Djokovic? Two awesome dudes! Two exciting tennis players. Love watching them both but Federer is always my number one guy.

    I Enjoy Watching Women's Professional Tennis.

     I've been a spectator of tennis most of my life. My father was an avid tennis player. I tried to participate, I wasn't so good. I didn't have the money to buy really good equipment either. I used hand-me-down tools. My first racket was wooden and heavy. My arm muscles...

    This year I've become SUPER obsessed with tennis, like we used to play it everyday during recess and after school!! I guess I just like the rush of it that and I like to win!! I'm not that good yet but ive been practicing, I'm getting there.

    Writing this after a few hours of practice.

    Tennis is so thrilling. Not to mention the satisfying feeling you get from smashing balls. There are those moments in the game where I don't even feel like I exist. I just glide across the court, not thinking about what I'm doing. Really the best part is the ball smashing though...

    I can't believe Roger didn't win the US Open. I feel so disappointed for him, and for Rafa and Andy Roddick and Marat Safin. This was a sad US Open for me. Roger and Rafa didn't play each other in the final, Roger didn't win and Marat Safin retired. I think I'm going to cry.

    Marat Safin

    My favourite tennis player is Marat Safin. In my eyes, he is the world's greatest. I like Roger Federer, Rafa Nadal, Andy Roddick, the Bryan twins, Tommy Haas and lots more (except Andy Murray), but Marat is 100% my favourite.
