The Story Model of High Performance Meets the University of Michigan Tennis Team 33

University of Michigan tennis team is betting on the story model of high performance helping them defeat the best in the country at the NCAA championships


Gold in the Louisiana Delta 15

I often write that I have redefined winning in a way that almost every match has wins. The sweetest of wins is when all that is important to me comes through in the big matches, the finals of the National Championships.


A Winning Day Despite a Loss and, Today, a Chance for a Gold Ball 102

Over the years I have learned to redefine winning to include the way I play, the effort that I give, the attitude I maintain, the responsibility I take, the appreciation for my opponent, how I react after the match, the way I am with the one who has defeated me and the resilience with which I bounce back.


Novak: The Master of Preparation and Resiliency 36

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 5

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.
