    In the hole I disagree that some are harder I think it's about as hard as you make them and the effort you put in.

    Hockey defense Is the hardest because it's 1 you have you be good at skating backwards 2 you have to be tough and take more checks than the offense 3 you have 260 pound men coming straight at you and you have to some how take the puck away 4 your responsible for almost every goal scored against your team 5 you have to dive in front of pucks 6 keep the puck in the zone if you don't your team will have to regroup putting you in a bad position but you still get less fame

    In my opinion tennis player is the numbet one because 1)the match can be veeerrryyyy long 2)a tennis match is very stressful and the player has to have very.good nervse and 3) for example if you get a hard ball shot towards you while youre standing in front of the net you need to have very fast reflexes too
