In the very rare instance that I play tennis I am quickly reminded just how difficult it is – and just how bad at it I am. The most frustrating thing about it is the fact that it’s one of those sports where I really feel going in like I’m going to be good. When I watch baseball, I know that I can’t hit a 96 MPH fastball. When I watch hockey, I know that I would be flat on the ice within 5 feet of stepping on it. But, for some inexplicable reason, when I watch tennis I am convinced I am really good at it. And then I step on the court, repeatedly send shot after shot whizzing into the net, throw my racquet and then usually fake an injury.
