Tennis Thoughts

About danmeljim

Born in Binmaley, Pangasinan. Grew up in Galas, Quezon City. A graduate of PMA Class of 1977, married to the only woman he has ever loved who bore him 2 daughters and a son. All wonderful human beings. These thoughts reflect the search that one day will end. And that the greatest failure is the one never attempted. Life and other non-essentials as viewed from afar yet always with an open mind.

5. We play with racquets with strings attached. Reputation and family are on display with big logos for everybody to see. Play poorly and the racquet’s value declines in the eyes of spectators and foes. Realization does not come kind in judging the racquet, regardless of denials and disclaimers. The would-be player then look for reputation rather than seeking from within, a match that is lost before it even begun.

6. Rallying is more enjoyable than a match. No rules to go by, no parameters to stay within. One sweats more and gets the heart pumping a little bit harder. One hits the ball with no worries. One experiments with different strokes and discovers his limitless potentials. On the other side though, rallying will only accomplish its aim with the eye on parameters and rules. Always the balance. Learn in youth what an adult can never do. Only to a certain age is a child not responsible for his actions. At the dawn of reason, everybody answers to the zebra’s call.

7. Love means nothing. It is the absence of points, the beginning of a promise with the slate oh so clean. What does it mean though when one loses, love-6? Yes, to have played the game and lost, as Shakespearewould immortalize, is better than not to have played at all.. Must one win in love? Does it matter to be a victor when surrender is the only point? Love match. Everyone dreams of perfection on earth disregarding the obvious shortcomings and selfishness. It is a folly bound to crash. Yet one aspires and strives for such is the closest to divinity one can achieve.Love means everything.

8. One teaches the boy to play the game until he surpasses one’s ability on the court. Then one learns from the boy even though the sinews refuse to abide the brain’s commands. Still one enjoys the endless pursuit of the ball, the sound of a good hit, the beauty of fuzz as it sails over the net, the impossible return of what is almost dead and the finite time and camaraderie tennis provides. As the sun sets in the evening of summer, memories are left like sweat stains while making bonding permanent between father and son. Day’s done and the match is over. Tomorrow is another play.

for jasm…

    Interesting blog, because I played Tennis in highschool. I was not really any good. I was mostly just a spectator and just would cheer. I was not really competitive enough to against anyone.But yeah, in Tennis LOVE is zero…I remember..lol….LOVE Match huh?, then would zero points for both. neither gain any points? scoring..LOVE, 15, 30,and 4O which means you win the game unless it is a deuce( a tie, 40-40). I never understood tennis until I played it. I actually wanted a regular P.E. (Physical Education)class.all other class was full, so I end up with Tennis class, the only one that’s available.
