   I felt the smooth racket handle in my hands,

A runnin', gunnin' full of fun game.

Yaah, tennis is my sport.



I tossed the ball up into the air,

My wrist flipped quickly and perfectly,

I grunted as the serve flew off my racket.

Yaah, tennis is my sport.



My opponent just barely got my rocket over,

And I placed two hands on my racket and swung.

What a backhand smash!

Yaah, tennis is my sport.



My opponent lunged for the red hot return,

And just barely got it over.

I ran for the short drop shot and rammed it back.

Yaah, tennis is my sport.



My opponent had no chance.

He let out a cry of defeat as the ball landed.

"IN!" shouted the line judge.

Yaah, tennis is my sport.



The crowd poured onto the court.

I was on top of the world,

For I'd beaten Andre Agassi in three sets.

6-0, 6-0, 6-0!

Yup, tennis is definitely my sport.
