Staying Interested in a match is a lot Harder than many people think .
Throughout my career , I’ve always had trouble in the early rounds of a Tournment mainly because it was hard for me to psychologically get up until I got to the Quarters or the Semis.
What happened a lot of times is that I would fall behind early, may be even lose first couple of sets in a Five set match and then began to concentrate.
Still it wasn’t something I could control from the Start.
Great players play like Swan Floating on Water .
It is a Experience to see them play ……. A pinnacle of Human endurance , Training , Commitment , amd Artistery .
Tennis is a Game of Service and Starts with LOVE ALL .
