    I love tennis too. I have played since I was like 5. It's really cool to see people play in person. I've been to the Nasdac Open in Miami a few times and I went to Rolin Garos in Paris when Agassi won.

    I love tennis! I used to belong to a racquet club and all that. I took indoor lessons in the winter, and outdoor lessons (twice a week) in the summers. When I was in San Diego, I took a week of lessons with a pro. Of course, I lost interest. I started again towards the end of high school, and I was surprised at how much my serve had improved. I used to barely be able to get it over the net, now I have a hard time keeping it in bounds! My boyfriend is taking tennis class starting next week... and he's never played tennis before, so he's a little nervous! But since he's learning, I get to drag him to the courts this summer! :D

    I play with a tennis racket in my backyard and hit a tennis ball against the side of my house back and forth without it falling to the ground. My record is over 200 times! I have fun out of it while making it into a world tournament and I pretend I represent all of the other countries too. I always win as Canada though. It keeps me busy, that's for sure. Also, go Mario Tennis!

    Yeah, totally! One of my roommates last year (the nice one) was on her tennis team in HS, and she said it was a lot of fun. I regret not joining at my HS... but maybe not. I didn't get along with a lot of the girls I knew were on the team, they were such snobs (as was most of my HS).

    I think I will join. I also know what you mean by all the girls being snobs, it seems like they are everywhere at my HS.
