I love This Game

I love this lovely  game

a  game of money and fame .

a game of unbelievable shots

a game where the atmosphere is hot .

I love Fedrerer’s fantastic play

and Nadal’s show on clay.

I love Roddick ‘s  fast serve

and Murray’s wit and verve.

I love the footwork of Djokovic

and the countless  aces of karlovic.

I love Agassi ‘s   returns

and McEnroe’s ’  half- volleys.

I love Borg’s strong forehand

and Lendl’s flat backhand.

I love this exciting game

It’s got tennis as a name.


The French Open inspired me this poem.My apologies for the ladies because I focused on men’s tennis.

do you love tennis ?

if yes, what’s your favorite player ?

  5. Great description! Have you ever been to watch a game? I have worked in the Wimbledon Tennis Championships for many years, and watched games and even met a few players. Interestingly the game never had the same impact as when playing it. I didn’t enjoy watching it live. I remember my first game was semi-finals between the Serena sisters, and I was sitting right at the front and I didn’t get moved by it at all, like when I am watching it on the Television or playing tennis myself. Do you play tennis?

  6. I too just love tennis. india too have some shining stars in this field, they may not be very much in world ranking but are very dear to us because of their love for country which shines in their games. 🙂

  16. You are really a sweetheart. No problem we ladies know you love us. I like your poem and made me miss playing tennis. I played when I was in school but got out of it as I got older. Thanks for sharing this wonderful poem with us.
