“You know you hit the ball right if it sounds right”
“Make the racquet do the work for you”
“Make aim right when the ball passes the net”

Sound of Tennis ball and racquet in my head 24/7
These are quotes from highly recommended tennis fanatics during my fitness holiday trip in a U.S. territory Micronesian island. Pacific Islands Club (www.picresorts.com) offers the only indoor tennis lessons on island. In short, no worries rain or shine.
This fitness holiday brought me to a great cardio workout, mental alertness and high vigor. These are the benefits tennis can do for you. This sport has both aerobic and anaerobic fitness, an incredible combination for a highly effective calorie burn. The acceleration from low intensity workout (standing and waiting for the ball) to high intensity (running to the ball, jumping, lunging and striking) gives fast mental workout. In summary, tennis gives you a strong mind and body.
Tennis is truly addictive, once learned. Wimbledon, US Open, French Open and Australian Open are the most awaited tennis matches. These matches give inspiration for both tennis players and non-tennis players. Tennis players learn techniques while non-tennis players get awed with the uber worked-out body of professional players. Is it just me or has anyone noticed that professional tennis players are getting cuter and sexier?
