Are there more wooden racquets or wooden performances in these clips? You decide!

  1. A classic movie for a classic sport. It’s GAME ON for Alvy and Annie after they HIT IT OFF in this NYC tennis bubble. (Sorry.) Worth it for the outfits alone.https://youtu.be/KFCe1wQeXA0
  2. Changing pace, John McEnroe gives it his all in probably the best scene from 2002’s Mr. Deeds.https://youtu.be/BmRjRSfsNrw
  3. A personal favourite, Richie Tenenbaum takes off one of his shoes and one of his socks on court. Not the headband though. The headband stays.https://youtu.be/EewT0T12xF4
  4. In case you thought you could forget that Rafa Nadal was in a Shakira music video… you can’t.https://youtu.be/_3-GiVIE8gc
  5. Equally incredible is Anna Kournikova’s foray into her own music video… do we call it acting? Sure, acting.https://youtu.be/9mQJaXwGPlg
  6. Lorde wants to go down to the tennis courts and talk it up like yeah.https://youtu.be/D8Ymd-OCucs
  7. In an essay called Tennis, Trigonometry, Tornadoes, David Foster Wallace (author of Federer as Religious Experience), describes his success at the junior level by mastering wind and math. Because that’s easier?
  8. Former professional tennis player Vijay Amritraj appeared as – what else – a tennis pro in the 1983 James Bond movie, Octopussy. Amritraj beats up bad guys with a racquet while the crowd oohs and aahs. Hilarious!https://youtu.be/Zbl3n2qQ-iQ
  9. Had to do it.https://youtu.be/KDRImgMxNQg
