At First I Didn't Know What Those Terms Meant, But I Could Tell That It Was Not Complimentary.Instead Of My Opponents Congratulating Me On My Victories, I Was Getting Hostile Negative Vibes & Comments From Many Of My Defeated Victims. At First I Thought They Were Simply Sore Losers, Unwilling To Accept The Agony Of DefeatOr Mad Because They Had Lost To A Weaker Tennis Player That They Felt They Should Have Crushed.Many Of My Victims Took Away Some Of My Joy Of Tennis As They Made Me Feel Like A Criminal, An Outcast, A 2nd Class Citizen Or Illegal Alien.

I Soon Learned That I Was Not The Lone Ranger As There Are Hackers, Pushers & Dinkers Like Me All Over The World Whose Similar Style Of Play Is Held in Contempt And Not Respected. We're Often Called Dogs, I Mean RetrieversOr Backboards As We Don't Like Making Errors Which Makes Us Very Consistent. This Makes Our Opponents Have To Work Very Hard To Get a Point Off One Of Us. They Don't Like That, As They Prefer To Win A Point The Easy Way Or The More Pleasurable Way And Thats By Hitting A Winner Or A Great Shot. TheyDidn't Seem to Accept The Fact That I Get As Much Credit From Them Making an Error As They Get For Hitting A Winner Or Great Shot.They Also Don't Like The Fact That We Often Hit With No Pace Which Seems to Annoy "Normal Tennis Players".I Finally Got Tired Of The Verbal Abuse & Disrespectful Way In Which Many Of My Victims Were Treating Me, So I Decided To Take Pride In My So Called Abnormal Ugly Style Of Play And To Call Myself
The Hacker, Pusher & Dinker From Hell !
I Put That Name On My Tennis Shirt As I Wanted My Opponents To Know Up Front That They Were About To Play Their Worst Nightmare.It Turned Out To Be A Psychological Advantage For Me As It Made Many Of My Opponents Uptight, Apprehensive & Unable To Play Their Best Tennis. Quoting Frank Sinatra's Hit Song They Had To Play "My Way".It Also Made Me Understand Why There Are Upsets In Every Level Of Tennis Because It Proved That Tennis Is Not Just A Technical Or Physical Game, But That Tennis Is Also A Psychological, Emotional & Intellectual Chest Match That Is Often Won By The Mentally Tougher Smarter More Intelligent Tennis Player And Not Always By The Technically Better Or Physically Stronger Tennis Player.
