tennis there is always someone somewhere at some time who is a better player than
you. This is facing reality which frees up the idea of being a good or bad player.
We are all on different levels of ability at one time or another. No matter how
long you wait no matter how much you prepare you are still going to make mistakes.
This is another one of those inevitabilities of life, a reality of being human.
Our goals are to continue to grow and enjoy tennis and play to the best of our
ability. Enjoyment can be much more than winning, but we know playing well is
a subjective and individual feeling that we are getting better, feeling better
and being successful in our game.
In all things there is success and failure. It is part of the human goal striving
mechanism that seeks the truth through trial and error. Only by missing do we
understand hitting. We must realize that at some point we will lose, this is reality.
The opposite also is true, we will WIN.
In playing the game we know that we follow physical principles that require time,
space, power and control to develop and execute the game of tennis. The better
the player you become the more you must follow as closely as possible bio/mental-mechanical
techniques that work.
the practice of thinking of mistakes as opportunities creates wisdom. With that
kind of perspective it becomes much easier to take corrective technical action.
When the mind is relaxed and balanced with the body the "zone" is close.

above is also representative of a philosophy that we feel when we play the game.
Always strive to enjoy each day, each shot, each game and each player that you
play with. Every shot is new and different and this is an exciting game to play...
When you find the "zone" for the first time you realize that it is the
synthesis of all your practices, shots, feelings and thoughts brought together
in harmony. During these all too short experiences there is a confidence and the
willingness to break the barriers and be as good as you can be.
