Tennisopolis : Tennis Social Network

TennisChick is full of great ideas, and one that she came up with this week was to do some short poems about the state of professional tennis. (Here's a link to her blog post).

So what's a haiku?
To get the gory details, check the wikipedia page, but basically, it is a short poem with strict rules: three lines, 5 syllables in the first, 7 in the second, and 5 in the last.

Get your creative juices flowing and post in this thread. Don't worry, no one will critique you. ;-)

(1) Roger Federer

Twin motives remind
The king, that win, draw, or lose,
Love still waits at home.

(4) Andy Murray

Irked by the sense
Of being discounted, eclipsed
London is his chance.
A couple by yours truly:

Scramble for the top
The king's crown is tarnished
Now London's Calling

The Joker no more
Please take me seriously
So call me Nole

this is an old Haiku of mine from awhile back maybe ten years. first time putting on internet.

"Tennis is Evil
but to Be GOOD & Evil
you Must livE Tennis"

EVil = livE
Tennis is evil? How so Coach? Because it is one-on-one warfare?

tennis can be negative for sure - c0nsider tennis parents that push their kids too hard. the me vs. you scenario is kin to boxing and I find that a fascinating aspect of this sport. it also adds to the intensity of a loss (or a victory) - it's all you. you can't bl;ame it on the team or say it was out of your control.
Score: Love means nothing
Yet we play with good friends
Enjoy the moments
in, out in, out, in
out, in, out, in, out, in, out
in, out, in, in, game
