Worked hard on the points of focus this morning. Short court, full court, serves and then sets. 6-7 4-6. Good work Carlos! Thanks. Watching the final yesterday gave me a much better idea of the outcomes I should expect. It is the sixth main draws open final I have seen this year. I have full appreciation of the abilities of those I hope to devour in the future. I feel that the points of focus that I have chosen to acquire are demonstrated by many of the opponents I have encountered this year. The opportunity to play many open tournament has allowed me to see more in my opponents. It is much like watching a movie for the second or third time. You are sometimes surprised at what you see and wonder how your could have missed it before. If I was to sit with another player at my level and point out what I am seeing now they might give me the attitude that it is all obvious but the subtle nuances that make the difference are starting to pop out. If I was to estimate on the abilities I have now and what I would hope to have in the next twelve months. I cannot say what I know now. Maybe it is 50, 60, or 70% of where I hope to be in one year. BUT these small adjustments will take me there and I have to work them into my tennis life.
I am sitting at 392 today. Three days until the Legacy games. My outcome determines weather I allow myself to play in the Pacific NW Sectional Wheelchair Tennis Championships.
Letting loose in the wind and sun. Thanks for the rally guys!
Short court, full court, serves and then sets. Pressure points just like yesterday. 6-7 0-6. Good work again Carlos! Thanks.
Social doubles. It was fun. Thanks all!
Slaughtered by Carlos today. I am fortunate to have the opertunity to play with him. 0-6 0-6. His five years of serious work is powerful to my almost three years. 400 compared to 150 in the world is a challenge. As said before all changes for me this fall in regards to training. Now to rest before my 4+ hour drive to the next tournament. Thanks Carlos
