Is someone standing between you and your love for tennis support thread

Do you have someone in your life who is not supportive of your love for tennis thus preventing you from watching, playing etc. as much tennis as you would like? Do you have to compete for the tv, or beg to go to matches or play tennis? Who are these villians? Or have you created a wonderful harmnony and have the support of loved ones in your love for the game? What can we do to put a cork in these detractors, and what helpful hints do people with good working relationships have for those poor souls suffering under the yoke?

Please folks, be sensitive to the fact that there may be people in positions of disempowerment here suffering under brutal regimes.

6 tvs? Cable? Youre killing me here. Maybe I gotta make a stand here. Maybe request one of the Wtaworld.com administrators to make a call in my support?

You lucky "'("'("-! So what is the secret to your success? Is there anyone else who has helpful hints. Anyone else suffering under this brutal form of oppression?

my parents wants to support my tennis but they think its unpractical to spend money (for training fee) on a sport which they think is just a hobby...its one of the things in my life that i still can't accept they can't take my tennis in a serious level...but they are however supportive on the fact that i love to watch tennis matches on tv as much as i can

LOL...I love this thread

Everyone thinks I'm weird, but they have all gotten use to it that they don't even bother me anymore...they know its a losing battle...

When I visit my parents, they are so annoyed that I log on to follow matches online and stay on the computer forever, that they are getting another computer and have even gotten DSL so I can stop bitching...

My friends ande family all know they come second if tennis is ON...PERIOD
