Do you swear when playing tennis?

At yourself, other players or the crowd?

I do a few times a match. Shanked FH drive volley? "What the fuck!" Double fault on to the wrong side? "AYFKM!!!".

Re: Do you swear when playing tennis?

On occasion. If I shank a simple shot or just do something generally stupid, it'll be something like "oh fuck off" (directed at myself)

Re: Do you swear when playing tennis?

Yeah, quite a bit under my breath. If I swear out loud, it's usually in another language.

The crowd, especially when I'm on center court when the stakes are higher.

Re: Do you swear when playing tennis?

I used to swear loudly and constantly. After reading the Inner Game of Tennis ... I'm a much quieter and less profane tennis player.

Once in a while tho, I do drop a big one that offends equally across all tightly bound demographics.

TT Singles: 2014 SF: Bogota, New Braunfels. 2013 F: Las Vegas, SF: Orlando, Sibenik.
TT Doubles: 2014 W: Trnava w PinkTape. 2013 W: St Martin, Orlando, Sibenik, Charlottesville, Nantes-YEC all w Soliloque; Lexington w DJDVD.

Re: Do you swear when playing tennis?

The one I got in trouble for most recently:

"Jesus, Mary, Joseph and the G*dd*mn seven dwarves, get the f*ck*ng ball in and stop acting like a choking piece of s*ht pansie as* motherf*ck*r"

Blasphemous, shocking, self-deprecating, and instructive.

All the at the same time.

I actually never swear in front of other people, therefore, never when playing tennis. Only in my head, when by myself or on TF.
