3. The emotional player versus " classic tennis dinker". Nothing can drive a tennis player more quickly to asylum that having to play a talented retriever who gets everything back with no pace. Sit back, have a drink, and start betting pools on number of times you're going to see a racket tossed in frustration.
4. The obsessive tennis nut -- can't be standing in a line anywhere without starting to practice his or her swing - without a racket of course. Observers often inquire if they're watching some new martial art.
5. The interfering tennis parent -- can't play, never studied game except for having watched an instructional video or two, but feels free to walk on court and correct former Wimbledon champ who is instructing his or her child. Just watching tennis pro try not to explode at this preposterous chutzpah is priceless.
Of course, there are many more of these funny tennis dynamics which I'll address in a later article. So for now, keep your eyes open at club and you may be very entertained by gift of tennis humor happening right in front of your eyes.
