Let’s face it, when it comes to sports one of the main reasons, whether you are a participant or a spectator is to have fun. I’ve compiled the top 10 funny tennis videos on the internet for that very reason. Part of being a good sportsperson is to have the ability to laugh and enjoy and to have a good sense of humor. In the course of researching the thousands of videos available on YouTube, whittling it down to the top 10 was a challenge and a hilarious task.
The side-splitting attempt of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal trying to recite their rehearsed lines for a TV promo had to be at the top of the list. There’s something about horsing around that makes this such a funny video, and being that these two athletes are so controlled on the tennis court, but could not control their laughter on set is what makes this one of the classic funny tennis videos of all time.
The rest of these funny clips feature Maria Sharapova, Caroline Wozniacki, Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray, Andy Roddick (and his witty interview with the press), Ana Ivanovic and an array of compilations including many tennis greats in different tournaments from around the world–I hope this puts a smile on your face.
Top 10 Funny Tennis Videos on the Internet
We couldn’t put together the top 10 funny tennis videos on the internet without including the amazing antics of Mansour Bahrami, who is probably one of the greatest tennis entertainers ever. Not only is he a total comic as a court jester, but his brilliance as a tennis player can only be described as epic. I didn’t want to make an attempt at any tennis jokes, but I’ll close with one of the funniest stand up comedy routines on tennis by Joe Matarese. As Charlie Chaplin put it: “A day without laughter is a day wasted.”
