I want love for my enemy
But not for myself.
I send objects to my enemy,
But I don't want my enemy to get them.
I am matched with my enemy.
But in the end I want the match myself.
Why do we run around doing this pointless exercise?

This riddle points to:

Tennis

I want love for my enemy
But not for myself.

Love means a score of 0 in tennis, which you would want for your opponent, but not for yourself.

I send objects to my enemy,
But I don't want my enemy to get them.

You hit balls toward your opponent but you don't want your opponent to reach and return the balls.

I am matched with my enemy.
But in the end I want the match myself.

Tennis is played in tennis matches, which you want to win instead of the opponent.

Why do we run around doing this pointless exercise?

Tennis involves lots of running around. The scoring system is based on games/sets/match instead of points as in other sports.
