You know you're a tennis addict when...

...the local baseball team wins a game 3-0, and you report the score as "three-love".

...you're watching a TV show, the show goes to a commercial break, and you reflexively refer to it as a "changeover".

...?

You reflesh the scoring thread for 2345907349079238476236 times when there isn't a scoreboard provided on the official tournament site.

You try to model your favourite's shots.

Your friends know who your favourite is.

and you are kind of gay.

... you stay up until ridiculous hours of the morning trying to catch European/American tournaments (because of the time different) - in the hope the match with your favourite player will be shown (even though there are another 15 female matches happening at the same time).

When you're at a tournament and you see one of your favorites and scream like a giddy schoolgirl. Noone around you knows who it is and looks at you like you're insane.
OMG. It's Carly Gullickson.

You chatise your parents for entering the living room when the TV is not on a "changeover"

Your local football team draws 0-0 and you refer to it as a double bagel

You refuse to eat anything which can't be sucked out of a small plastic packet

When the postman arrives you insist on blowing on your hand and adjusting your ponytail before receiving the mail

When your teacher/boss asks you a question you raise your hand halfway through and insist that he starts again because you weren't ready

You skip the most important exam of your life (English) to watch Nadia V. Maria at the US Open on TV. (And don't get a resit!)

You stay up 'til lke 4 in the morning just to follow Nadia on livescoring webpage.

You find it hard to sleep while laying in bed at night previewing Nadia's next match and try to imagine what she is up to right now.

Hi.

Good ones Brian and controlfreak!

...after meeting someone, you insist on shaking hands to say goodbye, and when the other person says "nice meeting you", you answer "good match".

you can identify the name of the tennis commentator by voice.


you have a "favorite" chair umpire, and a "least favorite" chair umpire.

. . .you SERIOUSLY don't know how anybody can play tennis without wearing a black catsuit.

...your friends have to tell you that just because it's hot as hell in Australia, you have no reason to be running around in tennis shorts in Chicago in January.

...your vacation days are set around the second week of Wimbledon(=).

....you secretly wonder how in the hell your friend made it through elementary school when he doesn't even know how to keep score in the 12pt tiebreak system.

When you get digital cable just to have the tennis channel, even though you don't watch much television When you skip family functions just to watch even when there are televisions over at the relatives---waking up at weird hours to follow tournaments across the globe

When you are shocked that someone you know doesn't know who Francesca Schiavone is. Or Linetskaya for that matter.

FUCK YOU, SEWTA.

I can relate to almost every statment ....


How about... When you are on a road trip and your favorite is playing and call your friend on the cell phone to give you updated scores....

Call in sick the day your favorite is playing a must win match.
