Twas the day after Christmas, and all through the ‘net,
tennis fans ’round the world were getting their alarms set.
They had been told what was coming their way,
and all they had to do was wait for the 26th day.
With 2013 all but behind them,
they looked forward to 2014 with great anticipation.
No prediction too wild and no dream too small,
they had awaited this day eagerly, all through the fall.
It first began with the #men in Abu Dhabi,
and some tried to make an exho matter because of Andy Murray.
With the Scotsman still in one piece,
their excitement for the new season wasn’t looking like it would cease.
The tennis that counted began under the Australian sun,
and although they could see none of it, that didn’t stop their fun.
Dushevina won the first game, Begu served the first ace, and forehands and backhands (presumably) flew all over the place.
Crouched over their laptops and glued to their phones,
tennis fans got back on their horses from the comfort of their homes.
While few may understand why they do what they do,
they do it all together, with me and you and you!
Happy 2014 to tennis fans far and wide,
I’m glad we’re all together for yet another crazy ride.
