Playing tennis leisurely certainly is a good exercise and a lot of fun. When you play in clubs that have competitive members, it becomes less of a leisure tennis and many club players turns more seriously into becoming very strong players. Because of this, all of them watches professional tennis players at work and therefore finds someone they wanted to imitate...they found their tennis idol. How about you, who is your tennis idol, do you have one?

Well I'm not playing tennis but I watch occasionally some tennis matches and I like some players. Djokovic is a great player and he is funny even at some points of the game so that makes him fun to watch when he is playing. Federer is also a great player being in the top3 in the last 10 or even more years. Lets not forget our fellow Cypriot (since i'm Greek) Marcos Baghdatis who is always close to the top 25 players and he had some good moments in his career too.

I remember watching some funny moments from Djokovic in youtube when he imitates some of his fellow tennis players like Nadal, Agassi, Federer and he even imitates Sharapova. He's a real joker and sports needs players like that to lighten up the athmosphere :) I'm not familiar with Cypriot but I really like how Marcus Baghdatis play...smooth and easy and almost effortless, but still highly competitive as he places the ball so well. Yes, he did have some great moments out there...I think what he lacks is consistency of good play. He does very well in one tournament and does so poorly in others.

Though he (Baghdatis) had a funny bad moment too when he broke 3-4 rackets after losing a game :P

Yeh, funny how some players express their anger in the court. I remember Michael Youzney used to hit his head so hard with his racket that it begun to bleed down his face. It was a scary moment to watch, but it's good that he was alright.

I am s great fan of Sania mirza. I love her very much. I always try ti imitate her doings in the play time but most of the time it doesn't become a successful. According to my opinion imitating players like them is good but practices are very important. Every player becomes his best when he or she has a regular practices and I think that it is the time for me to have a continuous practice time because I have my vaccination now

Oh I'm sorry I am not familiar with Sania, is she in the women's top 10? I do watch women's tennis from time to time and I know a few women's tennis player like Sharapova, Williams sisters, Kim Clijsters, the Asian Lin Na, and a few others.I agree with you that practicing is the most important thing of all, and I myself find my best form when I practice in longer time. You swing better, your timing is almost always perfect, and your focus and instinct are usually at peak. Vaccination? I hope you're doing okay...

Sania is the one of the tennis player who remains in every Indians mind. As a girl she is doing her best. She is doing her best effort for the team. It is just vacation. Sorry for the mistake.
