Is there any other sport other than tennis with as strong an affiliation to soccer?

I mean the overwhelming and irresistible desire a tennis player so shamelessly displays of being a soccer player is beyond preposterous. I don’t think there are ANY two sports with this kind of ‘betrayal’. Any chance they get it turns into proving how good they are at ‘handling’ the ball with their freaking foot. Unless I witness a boxer practicing a drop shot in the middle of a fight – real soon – I am going to lose it real bad if I see ONE more spectacle of basically saying ‘I’d rather be playing soccer’.
It would be at least tolerable if the feeling is reciprocated. I don’t see any soccer player picking the ball and hitting it with his hand – for a forehand shot. The only reason a soccer player ever graces the tennis stadium is only because he is a porn addict getting his kicks at WTA. All others at a men’s game are gay – yeah including the ones that occasionally show up at a Nadal game. Some you don’t even have to guess like that Ronaldo ‘girl’.
If you are a soccer reject and can’t get over it – go to some other freaking sport for therapy – and senseless beating.
