Hi there

When you have a strong feeling of doing an activity or something like that what do you say? Is it idiomatic to say "I'm craving to play tennis." or "I have craved to play tennis" Can you please give me few more similar examples? I just feel I can't find the right verb.

Thanks a lot

    No craving for tennis. For emotional emphasis, you could say "I'm dying to play tennis," especially if you haven't been able to play in some time, e.g. "I'm dying to get back on the slopes" if you've been laid up with a broken leg since your last skiing adventure.
