Stories Can Take Your Games to Another Level 3

I am working on comments about Federer and Rafa’s extraordinary Australian Open. In the meantime…


Novak: The Master of Preparation and Resiliency 2

What I took away from this match was all about Novak’s ability to prepare to bounce back from lost points and to bring his very best to the most important moments.

Who has ever been as resilient as him. He gets up for the mat after being knocked down like no others before him. He is a real life version of Rocky.


Roger vs. Novak Once Again 3

My hope and thought is that this match has the potential of being like the first Rocky vs. Apollo fight. A fight where both landed a knockout punch to end the match.

Tennis though can’t end like that. Someone wins the last point.


Shoshin and The US Open 5

There is so much that these players teach us that, if we can find a way to be a little more like them we, too,can hit our marks more easily.

I watch to learn. To model what I see that I want to be. To make some positive changes in the way I go about trying to be a better version of myself.

I add these lessons to my daily to do list.


Roger vs. Novak Redux 4

As many of you know, I am all about stories. Stories that players tell themselves that don’t work to get them what they want. And stories they tell themselves that create the possibility of being who they need to be to bring the very best out of themselves in the biggest moments of performance.


The Most Special Two Weeks in Tennis: Grass Court Tennis at Wimbledon 8

The press and the fans have stories about every player. It is important that the player has a story going that will give them the best chance to ignite the highest end of their talent and skills. So that, win or lose the score, they can look in the mirror and say, “I have no regrets. I brought my best.”

For all of these athletes it is about right practice, right attitude, right thinking. If that is in their mix then they play, win or lose, and have no regrets. As they compete to be the best version of themselves, they will be able to sit back and observe the results that come their way with the dignity and class of the great champions.
