Ok, I will start.

- When you remember Wozinacki whenever you see the word "Push".
- When you skip very important lessons just because you want to see your fave play aqainst unknown scrub in a 1st round of any tournement.
- Staying awake during the AO so you won't miss anything of it or reorganize your daily schedule before the AO.
- When you meet someone who isn't a really tennis fan but when he/she just mentions a name of a famous tennis player, then you immediately start talking with him/her about your fav players, their play style, how awesome your fav players are and how much you love tennis in general and he/she is like "WTF is wrong with this guy".
- When you praying very hard that your fav doesn't get crushed by Serena Williams whenever your fav plays her.
- When you refuse to go out with your friends because you want to watch a Radwanska/Wozniacki match.
- When your brother/sister (who likes another sport) say something negative about tennis while you are watching your fav player losing, you get mad as hell and start explaning to him/her why their fav sport is so shit compared to tennis.
lol

When playing tennis you can (and do) imitate any players' grunt, mannerisms and service motion.

- When you can recite the past slam finalists for the past 10 years by heart.
- When you can name at least 90% of the top 100 easily.
- When the favourite part of your year is going to your local tournament.

When you travel 12 hours (drove from Newcastle to Melbourne) to watch your lessor fave play on a shitty outside court.

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

the first thing on your mind when you wake up (or fall off your bed) is to check flashscores on your phone and find your fave has won, only to ADJE fistpump

You sleep while your fav plays and you seriously consider yourself a tennis fan?

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

When I believe I have a magical gift of sleeping that if I wake up at a certain time during a match my fave (works mostly with Stosur ) will win but unfortunately I can't wake up halfway through a Stosur match every tournament so that's why she's been losing.

Sorry, English is only my third language so I don't understand it that well. Did you mean that you are only sleeping in a week of exams, or that you are only considering yourself a tennis fan within a week of exams?

haha, sorry
basically i was using an example of me sleeping early whilst tennis was live during a week of exams but then checking my phone in the morning was the first thing on my mind (not the exam)

sorry my bad, should've stated that in my original receipt
