I grew up watching tennis and played in high school, which seems like ages ago now. I still try and play with my wife - it was one of the few things we could do during quarantine. Also it's an appropriate time to post since the Australian Open is underway. I started with generic tennis terms but then realized a tighter grouping would be better and ending up adding the progression aspect of the terms. I think the fill in this one holds up pretty well and I got some nice 8-letter downs and solid, if not spectacular, NE and SW corners. And shout out to 7-down as I love watching Top Chef. Maybe I'll work COLICCHIO into a grid.
