-when my twitter has 22 people from my high school, and 158 tennis players accounts
-when you see me in everyday life
-when the trunk of my car contains 1 spare tire, 1 car jack thing, 4 tennis rackets, 10+ empty tennis ball cans and pop tabs, and over 100 (no joke) old tennis balls laying all over the place
-when I'm literally typing in all caps on tennis chat sites in extreme anger when my fave is losing, or when a player I despise bullshits their way to a win
-when I've met incredibly cool people from all over the world and become Facebook friends with them because we both share a love of tennis (Italy, Morocco, Ireland, etc)

I may need mental help, but that's okay, right? Right guys? ...guys?

Re: You know you are an obsessed tennis fan when you..

I wonder if this is considered obsessed? I have the Tennis Channel on 24 hours a day. When my favorite loses, being either Serena or Rafa and I am so upset I can't post on a tennis forum for like 3 months.

I think about Na every day, like 24/7. Just the same with my football team
I was hanging out with a guy lately and once he told me "You always speak of her" and he dumped me. Suddenly. Or maybe not
My best friend also says that there is no time where when we talk I miss to say "Na". I mean, at least in one sentence every time we talk.
I don't want to get helped, anyway.

the first one i'm never worried when Empress plays Serena

the second one omg, when JJ is losing my sister is like trollolol she's so crap idk why you bother with her.

Re: You know you are an obsessed tennis fan when you..

  • When you find yourself with 5 separate Windows Tabs open and doing nothing but defending your fave in every one of them.
  • When you lay out an elaborate plan to get everyone out of the house so that you can watch your fave play in a Slam Final.
  • When you find yourself arguing about the true GOAT, yet your fave is still actively collecting slam titles. (not the best use of time).
  • You just can't bring yourself to toss a MASSIVE poster you made 17 years ago of a tournament that you missed.
  • Sitting through a match with Mary Carillo commentating ......with the volume 'on'.
  • When you discover that you own nearly a gigabyte of images of your fave that you collected for 17+ years.
