Responsibility and Performance, Hand-in-Hand

Tennis is a very individual sport.

Just like a gladiator, you are thrown to the lions. Nobody is playing but you.

Your family may be watching, your coach as well, but you have to resolve your problems, make decisions yourself.

In other words, you are fully responsible, no one else is.

So, be on your best demeanor, don’t express wild emotions, don’t blame the wind or the bounce, the balls or your racquet.

Be there as a conqueror, in present time and enjoy performing at your best.

And if YOU are being conquered, be a good sport.
