We can’t help but notice something about hitting a ball in sport.
Golfers don’t half whack a ball! They can hit it over 300 yards – that’s a hell of a whack!
Rugby kickers can score a penalty from inside their own half. That’s getting on for 60 yards with something the size of a rugby ball. That’s a hell of a whack!
A tennis court is only 26 yards in length and is played with a small fur covered rubber ball. They can hit so as it travels very fast.
What we don’t get is why tennis players feel the need to let out a cry of intense agony every time they hit the stupid little ball? No other sport feels the need for this ridiculous gesture.
It’s all a lot of cobblers.
