How do you react?

How do you react or reply when someone tells you that tennis is boring and shouldn't even be considered a sport?

I tell them it is there loss that they don't enjoy the sport....you cant change people who think that way about a sport...so I dont try.
I might tell them to try to play the sport before making there judgement!!

I get so angry, it's not funny! It's OK for them to say that they don't enjoy it, but if they pick on it, I get soooooo pissed off!!

By the way...no one has ever said that tennis shouldn't be consider a sport to me.
If they did, you'd have to stop considering about another 10 sports as being sports.

I would say: "Tennis is Life!! You must be missing 3/4 of your life already"

Trials make us Strong
Sorrows keep us Human
Failures keep us Humble
Success makes us Eager,
But Love keeps Us Going"

I would tell them that they are clueless

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

Even though tennis isn't that popular in the United States I don't think many people have the opinion that it's boring. At least, no one has ever said that to me.
