The Tennis Personality

There are so many reasons why tennis players love to play this great sport. Some want the exercise, others like the competition, and many just want to socialize. Are you guilty of setting up matches with players not at your level just so you can say you've played them? Have you ever canceled a scheduled game because you just don't have anything to wear? Did you get a sub when you found out who would be in your foursome?

It's easy to spot the typical tennis personality because they generally fall into one of several categories ranging from the competitor to the socialite, all coming together on a tennis court. Here are some of the most common tennis personalities you will ever run across on the courts, and what to do when you see one.

The Women

The Men

The Best of the Rest

Well, that's the list...these are the most common tennis personalities you are likely to come in contact with. Of course, there are even more types than this, and many variations and combinations thereof. Watch out for those sneaky players who try to beat you with everything but their tennis game, and for the sleepers who answer your question about how good they are with "ok", then beat you easily. If you see your personality in this list, and you're not happy about the stereotype, work on your game and your attitude, and let your tennis do the talking.
