I wish there was some way of listening to music while you play tennis. I reckon it would help me play better.  :)

I tried it in high school, I sucked at it.

I have a hitting partner who brings a radio to the court with her.  She plays it on her side of the court.  I do not mind it.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

I have an MP3 player and listen while I hit on the wall to loosen up before my day! I love it and wish I could listen while I teach!

Now that would be fun!

I guess listening to it while you give lessons would be a distraction to those taking the lesson, bummer...

When you going to start a Corfu thread Phil?  Keep us posted on what's new.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

every year before regionals and state tennis matches we would listen to some heavy music i think it was good for when i play doubles cause i get pumped and get to the net and put my volleys away also it gets my partner psyched too but for singles it seems that i can go out there are psyched up cause i'll over hit and lose my composure

Yeah, getting too pumped can be a problem, and then trying to maintain a consistant composure during the match will not last.  

Before the 2002 US Open final match between PS and AA, PS had headphones on and was jogging in the corridors.  Worked for him!
Good Luck on the Court!!!
