7 Reasons Why Tennis Is a Better Sport Than Cricket!

1. Tennis players don't crib about pitches despite made to play on all kind of surfaces;

2. They don't look like offspring of a Michelin Man and a mummy;

3. Women players get equal – in fact more -- attention;

4. Umpires at least get a chair to seat on, are not treated as cloth-hangers and don't have to do funny things with their hands to earn their bread;

5. Players refrain from unhygenic practices, such as applying saliva to the ball;

6. There is no recognised skullduggery called Duckworth-Lewis system to determine the outcome of rain-hit matches;

7. Lalit Modi has no role in it.

(P.S. It's the sight of Maria Sharapova in yellow treading on French Open’s red clay that provoked this post which can alternatively be called Why Tendulkar Attends Wimbledon but Federer Does Not Care About IPL).

Your perfumes, just like your dressing style, reveal your true colors for fashion statements. No matter whether a branded one or non-branded one, it should just like your mood. When your are sporty, or when having a great time at the dancing floor, or a romantic evening with your sweetheart, on each event you are in different mood. Likewise your perfume choice should also vary. Visit www.store4perfumes.com for details.

Most important reason why Tennis is better:

Tennis is a Law-abiding game. Cricket encourages violence, law-breaking and even murder. You don't win Tennis matches by hitting the ball outrageously all over the park and into the orbit. You win it by keeping it within a Court ! A Real Gentleman's Game :-)

SKJ, a little known fact is that Shakespeare possessed a time-machine that allowed him regular visits of this humble blog. It was precisely this suggestion that instigated that What's-In-A-Name line.

Som said...

Govind, spot on. It's not about power -- to hit the ball into orbit -- but skill and control to land it inside the court.

Btw, did you notice cricket's effort to malign tennis by calling that ailment tennis elbow?

Do tennis players suffer from, say, Cricket Ankle? Perfectly obnoxious!

Govind Raj said...

Some, Cricket ankle is a killer :-P

Sumit Agrawal said...

Som - Tennis elbow is not invented by cricketers. Its a medical term and it can happen to anyone. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tennis_elbow

Experience matures a person. But all experience has to come at the right time. Childhood is about fun and play, but its not so for Danny in “The Dare” by John Boyne. At the mere age of 12, he faces the brutal world outside him, and still dares to face it to save his family. Visit www.rightbooks.in/product_details.asp?pid= 9780552775762 to experience his story.

Just like light and darkness exist together, the good and evil forces stay inside human psychology. The dark side is not the one that acts always, but when it unleashes, the thin line between right and wrong diminishes. The concerned person forgets everything, and is completely driven by the wrong pathway. Visit www.rightbooks.in/product_details.asp?pid=9780552165525 to know how it changed the life of Kevin Dodd.

It’s always better to have information from the references. Reference books give us the additional information, and this information is essential for our knowledge base. For practical application of the subject like engineering, it’s the knowledge that is crucial.

It’s the confidence parameter that makes the difference. When one starts believing in oneself, nothing can come between that concerned person and winning. Approaches like self-training, motivational talks, self-development of skills is the few things that can do wonders on an individual.
