In a late night committee meeting, the World Tennis Federation have ruled that saying the word “F*CK” on a tennis court is now illegal.
This decision comes after many complaints from tennis players around the world, who said their lovely game of tennis was ruined when they would hear other tennis players shouting the word “F*CK” when they had screwed up a tennis shot or objected to a bad line call.
The World Tennis Federation have now introduced rule 998P, which states “If any tennis player says the word “F*CK” on court from now on, they will be immediately disqualified and the game forfeited. The purpose of this ruling is to stop bag language being heard on or near a tennis court”.
Why People Say “F*CK” On A Tennis Court
Before the World Tennis Federation passed this ruling, they wanted to understand why tennis players say the word “F*CK” on court.
Their research shows that there are 4 main reasons why people say “F*CK” on court.
1. They hit a bad shot and lost the point.
2. They did their third double fault serve in a row.
3. Their opponent made yet another bad line call.
4. They were picked to play doubles with another tennis player who is crap.
Not Just “F*CK” To Be Banned
The WTF also determined that the word “F*CK” is sometimes used in whole sentences and these will also be banned under rule 998P.
The other phrases which include the word “F*CK” to be banned are:
1. “F*CK OFF you cheating bastard”
2. “F*CK you are a blind, the ball was not out”
3. “Go F*CK yourself and I hope you “F*CKING well die”
4. “I am never going to play tennis with you again you cheating F*CK”
5. “F*CK ME, who the hell serves like that”
6. “For F*CK’S SAKE just get the ball over the net”
7. “F*CK your partner, she is as much of a “F*CKER as you are”
8. “F*CK that shit, I am not shaking your hand”
9. “F*CKING HELL, you don’t know the first thing about the rules of tennis”
10. “Please just F*CK OFF”
