For any tennis player.


A Blessing for the Tennis Player


“May your net always be friendly. 
May your serve always be true.
May your strokes always be quicker 
than the shots hit back to you.”

Tennis, like baseball and golf, is a timeless game.  By that I mean that there are no clocks which define the length of a game.  Football, soccer, hockey, basketball—all have defined time limits to the game.  In theory, a tennis match or a baseball game or a golf match could all go on forever, and the cynics among us would argue that baseball and golf sometimes do seem to go on forever, though the same argument could be made about the last two minutes of a football or basketball game too!

In any event, tennis is a wonderful game, and it requires skill, power, deftness of touch, athleticism, quickness, strategy, strength, endurance and mental toughness.  It is fun to watch, even more fun to play, and even more fun to play when played well (though you might well ask:  how would I know?).

This is a poem for the tennis player of any skill level.
