Ten­nis jar­gon: the real-world trans­la­tion

The Daily Telegraph - Telegraph Magazine - - BIGGER PICTURE -

Unforced er­ror

You’ve agreed to go to a school re­union. It’s tonight.

Forced er­ror

You put a wash on with­out read­ing any la­bels – af­ter a bout of in­som­nia – and shrink your favourite jumper to the size of your socks (of which you can only find one).

Top­spin

You’ve had too much cof­fee – or your anti-anx­i­ety medicine is re­ally work­ing.

Drop volley You ar­rive home just as the Ocado van is pulling up. Dou­ble fault

De­spite ex­plicit in­struc­tions and years of con­di­tion­ing, you’ve been wo­ken two nights in a row for sex.

Match point

It’s 10pm. You’re out hav­ing fun. One more shot or an Uber home? Do you have it in you to raise the hang­over tro­phy?
