Why is Tennis such a drama sport ?

I feel like everything about tennis is overly dramatic.

It's a characteristic it shares with basketball, football, soccer, beach volleyball, baseball, cricket, track, swimming, hockey, lacross and a few other sports.

Without drama, you might as well watch reruns of Jimmy Carter's State of the Union addresses!

Because they don't get to actually hit each other.

Heck, they don't even really get to curse each other out or talk much trash to each other...

...not shaking hands after a match is = a "head butt to the chest" in tennis.

If your fave's coach isn't Richard Williams, that's just her first problem...

I was there when the ALL BLACKS won the World Cup in 2011!!!

I love the drama and the tension its what sets it apart and it makes it more human its great especially on the womens side for that reason.

You probably would find it much less dramatic if you didn't come here .
