The official 'best tennis-related Morrissey/Smiths songs' thread

Some time ago, Morrissey (rather incongruously) declared his love (or, at least, mild appreciation) for the sport of tennis.
So, with ‘Wimbledon’ just about to start, now seems as good a time as any to list the best tennis-related Morrissey or Smiths songs. Here are a few to get the ball rolling (pun intended) from Camp E.

1. Tie-break up the family
2. Used to be a ballboy
3. Hold on to your serve
4. Little Henman what now?
5. Backhand in glove

This is a stretch but with an accent you could get 'My Dirty Love Life' from "My 30-Love Life"

You're the one for me, Murray.

Don't make fun of Murray's voice

He knows I'd love to beat him

I'm not Murray

I went to Tennis Warehouse and picked the most expensive racquet, then had a hell of a time wording the oz. part. :D I usually play with whatever racquet they hand me, I'm not a pro about the lingo.
