If you have ever wanted to be a part of a community, there is no better place to turn than tennis. From years of experience, I have learned that there is a sense of camaraderie among tennis players that is hard to find elsewhere. Tennis players are competitive by nature, as is the case with any sport, but they are also willing to make connections with others through their game. They have a strong sense of community that makes them different from other competitive sports, allowing them to create bonds with others who share in their passion.
Tennis players are often also determined. As a sport of endurance, tennis requires players to train and work to become proficient. Players who are serious and passionate about their sport will practice and work hard to get better. With role models like Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Maria Sharapova, who have all beaten the odds to reach their goals and attain such a level of notoriety in the international tennis community, tennis players the world over have a positive influence. Those who are determined to get ahead in the sport will persevere until their goals have been met. Giving up is not an option and persistence and hard work are the keys to success.
Tennis players are not only determined people with a strong sense of community, they are also fantastic athletes. For many who do not play the sport themselves, tennis may seem fairly simple and easy to play. It is only after they pick up a racket that they understand the level of difficulty involved in becoming a tennis player. Becoming proficient in the sport is not an easy task, and those who are good players have worked very hard to achieve their level of skill. Tennis requires hours of practice as well as technique-building and endurance training. Skilled players are often high endurance athletes who have practiced for years and played hundreds of games. To them, tennis is not just a lifestyle, it is their life. And to them, playing tennis and become a tennis player are very different things.
As I mentioned, tennis players are determined, capable athletes who are strongly community-oriented. The world of tennis is full of diverse people all reaching for similar goals. Whether they play for fun or they play to win, tennis players are their own special class of athletes.
