The Toughest Grand Slam

I have long regarded the French open as the toughest grand slam to win. But to win it 10 times takes a Herculean effort. We were fortunate enough to work over in one of the best Tennis Academies in Spain. During this time we were able to watch Rafa practice. You could see then he was a very special breed. His work ethic and focus to his training was amazing, even as a 14 year old. Having spent years on the tour, we have been lucky enough to watch him evolve, we have seen his game progress and admire the… Continue reading

Self-Belief for Success in Tennis

tennis-success

The right attitude can make all the difference if you’re struggling for self belief. Motivation can wane when a player is struggling to see consistent improvements, in their tennis training both on and off court. A plateauing game – or even worse, an tennis injury – are often turning points that lead a player to question their processes.

They are merely recognised on the court. They become champions in their daily routine. Players do not really decide their future. They decide their habit, then their habits decide their future.” The quote is a powerful reminder of the importance of being proactive with good tennis fitness habits to become a champion on the court.
