I am amazed how some players expect to play on certain level without putting in time and effort daily! One junior player asked me, “How come you play like that when we play points? Why I can’t play now like that?” Here is the catch! “NOW”! Well my NOW is actually after 23+ years of complete dedication to this sport! IN & OUT!
Again, it’s the process! And for the process to take its effects it takes time. This is called PATIENCE!
Young players nowadays are lacking the patience the most! They are used to this new fast paced world, where everything happens in an instant. Well, not in sports. Particularly not in tennis! As soon as you junior players deeply and truly understand this message, you will start winning!
It’s the long term game in which the ones who have the most patience and who are obsessed with the process and love it the most are the ones who will become the champions.
