Serena: The Princess and the Pea 16

You are the best ever. You lost because you were beaten by a better player on that day. That is what happens in sport. It is about today. Your rhythm was thrown off because of any extra day due to the rainout? Your opponent didn’t play the way your two prior opponents played? It was hard to play with the pressure of having to win the Grand Slam? You were tired from so many matches?

Are you Princess who cannot sleep because of a pea under the mattress?

As Roberta Vinci said in her post match interview after beating Serena, I am sorry.

I am sorry Serena but I need to write about you and disappointment I feel.


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.
