    You know you're a tennis fan if...

    We were having this conversation in TATChat about things we have done (friends and commitments blown off, work and school skipped, etc.), so I decided to start this list. Add one. I'll start.


    1. You have memorized the time difference between your time zone and Pattaya City

    2. You've missed a deadline at work because of reasons that are simply too personal to discuss (Venus is playing and it's televised), but you may be able to talk about it in a few days.

    3. As a kid, when there was no other option, you'd listen to BJK's World Team Tennis team play on the radio.

    4. Your man knows to go do errands and get the hell out of the house during a Rog/Nadal Wimbledon final. (And for that matter, for a Venus/Bartoli final.)

    10. You want every freaking body around you to just shut of so you can watch a tight match in peace.

    11. You're at work following scores online and you're boss/coworker interrupt you at crucial point, and you want to scream at them.

    12. You're in church doing your best to not think about the big match your favorite is playing, but no matter how hard you try it's pointless.

    13. Your roommates make sure the TV is free for you, then congregate to watch the spectacle of your living and dying by every point. They might also liken you to a chicken due to the sounds that come out of your mouth.

    13. You have followed the careers of Mirjana Lucic, Jelena Dokic and Alexandra Stevenson.

    14. You can name of the top of your head the finalists of the Rabat challenger.

    15. You can use the name "Monique Viele" in a sentence and know what you are talking about.

    16. You have blown off actually playing tennis in order to watch it on TV.

    17. You have forced an S.O. to stay in bed 'til noon on a Sunday in July, and when they look at you amorously, you say, "ok, there will be a 2-minute break after this set"

    18. When you plan a Tennis Tailgate for a bunch of other tennis nuts!

    19. Make a list of the top 70 tips for attending the US Open!

    Can we fine-tune #12 a bit? That doesn't really work for all of us. I would propose:

    12. You risk going to hell by skipping church so you can stay home to watch tennis matches.
