Besides the health and social benefits, I like the high individual authority and responsibility of amateur tennis, it's even higher than pro tennis. I like the similarities it has to boxing and baseball, too. The mental and emotional aspects of competing. And all the choices to make, strings, racquets, style of play...okay, okay, I like the women who play.
