    I am posting this in the junior section because that's what I am.

    If I miss a day of tennis I go crazy. During the summer I play up to 5-7 hours a day and never get tired of it. When school is in session, I have been going to indoor courts and hitting with a partner or ball machine at 6 AM.

    Have any other juniors on here have the same expierence? Anybody?

    Lastly am I addicted to Tennis?

    One last thing I fall asleep to watching tennis on my iPod.

    Im with all of you. im a freshman in high school and i started playing when i was in 7th grade just for fun. then it escalated... i was playing over 4hrs a day and trying to balance baseball and schoolwork into the schedule. then i decided to quit baseball which was my absolute favorite sport until tennis. now im all tennis, all the time. it kills me to not play. i want to every minute of the day, i am glad im not alone:)

    Haha same here. I am currently at a spot with no indoor courts so I may end up going into a depresion this winter. Got great weather so far thankfully. I hate having a day off and when I go over that (very rare), it can get pretty bad
