Funny Things Tennis Players Do

Haven't been blogging about tennis for quite some time. But I'm still watching it when I have the time. Just thinking about something lately - about how tennis players do, what I consider, silly things when they are playing.

They are particular about how or where or which ball to play as if the ball has anything to do with how good they play. It doesn't stop there, which ballboy or girl they receive the ball from is also crucial and not to mention some other small adjustments. Sometimes they go to great length to make sure everything is 'perfect'.

It's as if they don't have the confidence in their own ability that they have to depend upon a tennis ball to win a match. Here we have a group of people who are supposedly have enormous belief in themselves and sometimes seemingly, from the way they talk, have all the confidence in the world, and yet they put considerable importance on forces that are so minute that might or might not influence the whole match.

Well, I guess they are humans after all.
