Tennis Expert

Every few years I get sucked into a tennis event, and this year I’ve become QUITE taken with the US Open.

One of the things I enjoy about tennis is that the players are so obviously bonkers. I mean this in a good way, as I’m actually quite fond of loons, especially loons who I get to watch on television in HD.  As far as I can tell, tennis is a sport comprised entirely of Ryan Millers, only THESE Ryan Millers aren’t even socialized.  These poor people don’t even have teammates to keep them grounded.

They’re totally on their own out there.

It’s fascinating, and alarming, and inspiring, and sometimes a little sad.  It’s first rate drama.

    I haven’t read it myself, but I’ve heard even from non-tennis-fans that Agassi’s autobiography is amazing, and a distressing insight into the causes of such loonhood.

    I’ve read parts of it (I lost it…) but it was pretty amazing. Keep forgetting to pick up another copy.

    I love tennis! My dad was a tennis player when he was younger, so it was one of the sports that I grew up watching (along with football…A LOT of football, golf, and hockey). Although I am still kind of embarrssed to say that it’s still hard for me to follow how the score is kept. It seems every time there is a match on I have to turn to my dad and say, “Wait…how does this work again?” But I’ve always found it to be a very entertaining sport to watch.

    Elise, I am in LOVE with Novak Djokovic. I’m going to change my name to Dkatebits in his honor.
