Haters, as faithful I Hate Tennis followers, you already know the map of my tennis psyche (convoluted, twisted, winding and full of pedestrian zones, one ways and detours, like the tiny little streets of Florence). Now, with the help of good, old-fashioned radio, thousands of others know it, too.
My Tennis Hate was featured in my colleague Richard Hake's "Weekend Staff Picks" and broadcast over WNYC's 50,000 watt airwaves to all within its radius.
Hake himself has played tennis. "When i was in high school, I took lessons," he told me. "I never played regularly, but I like it."
Haters, therein lies the key to curing Tennis Hate: play sporadically.
