    I'm also in high school and my team sucks. Let's see where do I begin. I ski and have for the majority of my life. I used to be pretty into basketball before I broke and Dislocated the same finger in the same night. Last year, I played lacrosse which was essentially boot camp. The games were fun but it was 3+ miles everyday to run and I'm not exagerating. I didn't play this year because I broke my shoulder blade playing last year and my tennis hasn't been the same since.

    So this spring it's a whole lotta nothing. College searching, SAT taking, and AP College Board exam taking. It should be interesting. Try out for lacrosse, it'll keep you in crazy good shape for tennis.

    (Waaaait a minute. Around here Boy's tennis is in the spring. So why aren't you doing that - or are you. I'm also assuming you're a guy. I'm sorry I'm so sleep deprived.)

    No :( I couldn't. I'm one to be dominated as you can tell by my many injuries. I'm just bubbly and like to get rid of my excess energy.

    I'll tell you a secret, a lot of the boys who play lacrosse at my school have been blessed with favorable genetics. Sometimes we got to run with the boys. It was fun - sometimes.

    Ouch!

    To the OP, if you're talking tennis on a school team, I don't play for my school (not good enough, AND not young enough). Aside from tennis, I... uh... I study. Yeah, I study. :)

    EDIT: Hm, I'm sleep-deprived. I completely forgot that I play badminton as well, and swim whenever I have the opportunity to do so.

    And BTW I'm not in high school anymore (probably am older than some of the people posting in this thread, too).

    Tennis pretty much takes up my whole life. Right now, I've got high school season starting, so I've got team practice during the week. I also hit extra on some nights after practice as well. Besides tennis, I've got school (which has been tough since I've been hit bad with a case of senioritis). I've also been doing a lot of college searching, and I've been on visits to the schools I'm interested in (Saint Louis University, Bradley University, Valparaiso University, Indiana State University, Truman State University, and University of St. Francis). The last thing that takes up my time is teaching tennis in clinics for all different ages at a local club.

    Wow, I feel bad for you guys, being in High School does suck. However, working all day kind of sucks too. So does getting old and having your body fall apart. When I'm not playing tennis or being a total dork posting on this board I play in a band.

    Careful, the next time you misspell something our fellow posters might try to tell you that you're not going to college. Haha, make sure you revise and edit every post every time - since apparently that's the "en vogue" thing to do.

    Thanks for the heads up. This is going to sound really bad, but what did I misspell? I looked at my post again, and silly me doesn't see what word I spelled wrong.

    LOL you didn't spell anything wrong, or at least I didn't catch it. I was being facetious. In another thread I was talking about college and a I misspelled a word and someone pointed it out and suggested I wouldn't get in to the college I want to go to. But no, your spellings are fine.

    Oh, ok. I got you. I was going crazy because I couldn't figure out what I spelled wrong. I wouldn't worry too much about what others here say. They get on everybody for the stupidest little things. I guess it's easier for them to take their frustrations out on someone on the Internet than doing it face to face with a person. Just take a lot of the things they say with a grain of salt.
