Comments

From Ryan : I enjoy this short quite a bit since I enjoyed playing tennis my first year of college. One part of this short that I find humorous is where the groundskeeper is constantly caring for the lawn and somewhat distracting the game. This is another short that has all those Goofy look-alikes.
From Baruch Weiss : The word "goofy" really does not describe Goofy in this cartoon he seems to look confident rather than goofy!
From Laura Cross : Perhaps, Baruch, this is because tennis may be one of Goofy's strengths. Besides, I myself enjoy tennis, so consequently, I like this cartoon.
From Mike : This is one of Goofy's funniest sports cartoons. It's funny when the groundskeeper is trying to work while the game is going on.
