What I love about tennis:

I started to play tennis because of my father who is a tennis coach. Tennis has been able to give me so many things in life that I am grateful for - friendships, security for my family and lifelong memories. 
Tennis has given me the opportunity to travel the world, meet many new people who have become my friends now.
Tennis is fun sport. It combines power, energy and mental strength and you have to put them together. Sometimes you can play a great tennis match and loose the game or play terribly and win the match. These twists and turns make tennis very fun.
