I've enjoyed watching tennis for many years now - two hot, sweaty, well-toned men battling it out for hours to find out who will be on top. What's not to love?? But for some reason it totally escaped me until today how much a match is really just a very long fanfic in disguise and with more applause. So without further adieu, here is my list of....

10 Ways Watching Tennis Is Just Like Reading Fanfic
(Note that all items in quotes were taken directly from commentators.)

10) The terminology says it: Advantage. Hold. Break point. Luv
9) "He can adapt and find power from tough positions."
8) Man on receiving end generally bends over and waits for it while server prepares.
7) "His backhand stroke is much better than his forehand stroke."
6) Orgies Doubles: Mens (mm/mm), Ladies (ff/ff), and Mixed (m/f/m/f).
5) All those grunts of exertion.
4) Switching Ends.
3) "As soon as he gets a defensive play, he pounces and scores."
2) Fresh Balls.
1) "He only takes one ball at a time like a lot of the ladies do."
