My favourite sport to play is Tennis. I am also a casual golfer and swimmer (mostly swim for muscle recovery after a week of workout). I watch Tennis, AFL, the Olympics and basically follow a bunch of sports because I love the never give up attitude from teams and players. To see underdogs defeating heavy favourites, to see impossible comebacks and to see inspirational individual effort within a team, those are what makes sports so exciting to watch.
AFL (Sydney Swans)
NRL (St George Illawara Dragons)
Super 15 Rugby (ACT Brumbies)
NBA (Milwaukee bucks)
A-League (Sydney FC)
Tennis (I just loved a great match – but I love to watch an underdog win a Grand Slam at this time..)
