Close observation of how people play tennis can reveal some interesting things about them.

Riz Din adds:

I play golf on occassion and love to read people's attitudes from how they play the game. For instance, when players are always looking over their shoulders to the party behind them and are rushing their game or feeling nervous on the tee, this reveals they care greatly about what other people think of them. I'm not saying this is necessarily a bad quality, but it sure doesn't help their play!
