Great Match Against Bishop Eustace = Best Learning Experience Thus Far

We played this same darn good Eustace squad just two weeks ago. We were at different points of learning and had less polish to our game then we did today. This was another great experience for all of you. I observed each and everyone of our tennis team members taking full advantage of the opportunity to improve their tennis game...AND we all took on the challenge with GOOD ENERGY.

Great attitude from each and everyone of you. It was another beautiful day and once again thanks to the parents who came out to support the team. Below are 2 short '1 min videos' I want you to watch them, and start to see the mental part of the sport. Tracy Austin, one of the all time greats, speaks in the 2nd video. Tracy is 5'4 and never had any huge wepons, but did have a mental toughness that separated her from all other competitors. Tracy Austin won 2 US Opens and is a member of the International Tennis Hall of Fame. Tracy is a tennis expert and one of the greatest American tennis players of all time.

What are 4 areas of tennis improvement?
