John grew up in New York City with kids picking on his weird appearance, and having a lawyer for a father able to verbally beat John in his frequent complaining sessions. John complained about everything all the time, including too much homework, unfair teachers, crowded subways and the fact that no one seemed to like him very much.

John was a complainer from day one.

John would have been an emotional complainer if he never played one game of tennis.


You live in your own skin.


If you are an emotional complainer off the court, the only way to be comfortable on the court is to be an emotional complainer.





On the other hand, if you are reasonably well adjusted, turning into a loud mouthed jerk on the tennis court is more likely to cause you inner turmoil that you are not prepared to handle.

I can have an emotional #1 if I have been forced to hold it in for a long, long time. Sometimes I can almost feel like crying..
