Discussion in 'Racquets' started by klementine, Jul 14, 2009.
You give-up your crack habit to buy more racquets....
continue in good fun......
you go to youtube on your spare time to watch tennis highlights.
when you have tennis balls in your trunk, under your seat.
Your girlfriend wakes up with a black eye because of your convulsions during R.E.M. dreaming of a volley.....
Don't even have a girlfriend.
spank you girlfriend's @$$ with a semi-western forehand
You offer to give a ride to your stringer after his colonoscopy...
when you get up in the wee mornings, to hit the courts...
... come back, bathe, wash-up, and wait for it to reach 4pm to play again
You still have conversations with your high school tennis coach...... even though he died 10 years ago.
You play more than three times a week.
You frequently proposition the students at the school where you work to hit.
You have or have wanted to throw a racquet at the wall for a bad shot that you hit.
You drag a friend who has never played onto the courts because you don't want to hit with a wall and/or can't afford the ball machine that day.
when you are taking naps but have not totally fell asleep yet you dream about different string setups.
...When you post threads like this in the racquets forum?
When you consider it worthwhile to argue with complete strangers over the net for days on end about whether Fed is GOAT or not.
You actually watch the tennis channel not showing tennis.
.... you start taking naps with your racquets
When you classify people around you in two groups;
People who play
People who don't
.... you start taking your racquets in the bathroom with you so you can look at them when you are taking a crap.
when you start calling balls out when clearly they were in :twisted:
You begin using tennis similes and metaphors during activities that have nothing to do with tennis (i.e. "this restaurant is as overrated as Gulbis" or "Pamela Anderson is faker than Karlovic's paintjob") and end up confusing everyone.
You can say "come on" in various languages.
You mimick stroke motions in public.
Your room looks like a tennis warehouse (no pun intended).
Work in a sports store and purposely find a loose tennis ball and bounce it around all day, stare at the racquets in the tennis aisle when theres nothing to do, and drool when new sticks come in. We just got the youteks in the other day lol.
When you setup a tennis website/forum ... like I did!!
When you become a Talk Tennis Guru.
when you look at your spaghetti with tomato sauce and you think
"hum.. Pro Red Code"....
Luy from Shatto Park has been dealing with this issue for at least 3 years now. Just this past week, he switched from his PD to the kBlade, and it's probably never going to end for him.
Brilliant. Spot on with all!
...when you haven't seen your non playing friends for months.
...when you don't have a single pair of socks without clay stains.
...when you try to slice the ball while playing beach volleyball with friends.
...when you take your tennis bag with you everywhere just in case.
...when you include tennis in your pick up lines.
:lol: made me laugh..
... when you get depressed when it rains.
.... when your're at the office, you spend more time on TW than you do doing your work.
Whoops, gotta run, boss is coming.
When you start using "Federer" or "Nadal" as email passwords.
when after 22 years of not playing you lose 25 lbs of muscle, run 5 miles three - four times a week use weight machines not free weights, because you don't want to get big. use 3 different kinds if frames with 6 different strings. buy a stringer for yourself knowing the best youll ever be is maybe a 5.0 player. and even with much scrutiny from family and friend give them all the finger in the name if tennis!
this is me! haha
When you boss gives you "tennisguy" as a password. This just happened to me.
When you turn your GF down for sex so you can get up early tomorrow to play tennis...
when you mimic stroke motions in any situation. randomly. thats definetly a tennis addict.
LMFAO, I've done this already. More than once actually!!!:lol:
...when you have Vince Spadea's music on your iPod.
You're sad after the French and Wimbledon because there's no good tennis on TV at 5AM.
When you see someone wear a pair of barricades in random places, restaurants, grocery store, at the mall, just walking, etc you think "i bet that person plays, i wonder if they wanna hit.
ROFL, thas one was great ...
when you actually get sad when you win a match...because you know you will have to wait another 24 hrs to get back on the court
you wake up at 6 am to watch world team tennis...

when you have a test tomorrow and instead of studying you go air swinging in your room.
. . . when you offer to give your stringer a colonoscopy.
When you blow up coupla hundred $s on racket Demos and end up buying the you never demo'd just because a certain player uses it.
You start missing baseball or basketball games with your friends and rather enjoy hitting some balls all alone on a WALL.
yes! i actually ask them, and mot of the time they are freaked out.
I agree or you size that person up based on their tennis outfit - whether they're a player or simply a fan!
When you have "hitting friends" "match friends" and practice partners that take the place of all your previous "drinking buddies"
Simple choice - turn your tennis friends into your new drinking crew
ALSO- when you stop by the local used sporting goods store and dream about an old Pro Staff (or other rare gem) coming in from someone's garage...
Hey....I only did that because it was new racquet!
