Tennis was originally designed to be violent

January 15, 2006

Tennis is the only professional sport where you can hit your opponent with a ball and be automatically awarded a point. This is what gives tennis the potential to be the most violent sport in the country, but unfortunately the players do not take advantage of this.

Dodgeball and paintball are not real professional sports, so they don’t count. Volleyball would only award the hitter a point if the hit-ee (you’re right…that isn’t a word) fails to return the ball over the net. This leaves tennis as the clear winner, as the point is awarded regardless of the receiving end’s ability to follow through with the return. The next time you hit your opponent in the face with a tennis ball, take pride in the fact that you are playing the game the way it was meant to be played.
