13.
n. A sport that involves either one on one matches or tag-teaming for a 2 on 2 match. Requires massive amounts of eye-hand coordination and stamina because unless you're playing doubles, you are on your own running around a court for several hours after balls that fly as a fast as a paintball. Tennis is considered a "gentleman's" sport, so gloating, taunting or showing signs of frustration is often looked down upon. To add to the "gentleman" aspect of the game, spectators are to keep quiet and watch respectfully at all times, though brief clapping is acceptable. Basically, next to golf, tennis is the quietest sport in the world.
"Dude, I went to watch my friend play this tennis match the other day, but I wasn't even allowed to cheer or yell! It was pretty boring... but those tennis chicks are really hot."

Possibly the most difficult sport in the universe. Requires patience, agility, quick reflexes, confidence, stroke skills, physical fitness, and stradigy. Tennis courts are true war zones and are not just two people with rackets. Only real men play tennis.
Tennis requires a lot more than other sports, the most difficult aspect is that its 70% mental. Sure, pussy football players can tackle. But, what happens when you face off a bear and Einstein with a rifle.
