    What is the worst tennis related pun you've ever seen/heard? Some I've seen include:

    on a grammar poster in 5th grade: "hit an ace with vowels"
    on another math poster in the 8th grade: "hit the sweetspot with algebra"

    the worst one's Ive heard, actually even said unintentionally while playing mixed dubs had to do with "balls" (something like "his balls" or "my balls")

    I tried to avoid using the word which made it even more embarrassing. Adding tennis to it, makes it even more awkward.

    Back in the 80's, one of my tennis pals repeatedly wore a T-shirt (might easily have been a ski T-shirt, though) which simply had the slogan on it:

    GIVE ME ROSSIGNOL
    OR
    GIVE ME HEAD

    A woman taps her strings, hears that dreadful "ping" and says 'I need a vibrator'.

    My reply: "not from where I'm standing"!!!

    True story..........

    My friend was playing with some girl (she's a tennis virgin) and he was pounding forehands against her, trying some how tough he is.
    Anyways, everytime he would hit a hard forehand the girl magically returned the ball. After a few exchanges, my friend said "WOW I CANT BELIEVE SHE'S HITTING MY BALLS!!!!!" He knew it came out wrong the moment he said it.

    Why should you never date a tennis player? Because love means nothing in tennis.

    I just took this a few seconds ago. I'm not going to lie, this is one of my favorite tshirt : ). Surprisingly, my old hs tennis coach didn't get the pun.

    One day while playing mixed, my partner missed a volley hit at her feet and said, "Ya know, I have been bending over to get it way too much lately!"

    As soon as she said it, she turned a beet red and started cracking up!
