I love this quote:
“I have always considered tennis as a combat in an arena between two gladiators who have their racquets and their courage as their weapons” – Yannick Noah
Yannick Noah may be a player from many years ago, but this is still more than true. Just think back to Wimbledon 2010 – where else would you see that? A record-breaking match that lasted 11 hours and 5 minutes over 3 days and on one of those days 7 hours of continuous play. John Isner and Nicholas Mahut were gladiators and went beyond normal human endurance. I wonder if we will ever see anything like it again?
When you play singles, it is just you out there. All the preparation work has to be done before to get you to that point where you have all the tools, knowledge of how to use them and the physical and mental strength. All this though is nothing unless you have the desire to win. Not all of us though want to compete. What brings us to together is our love of tennis.
So, whether you are beginner, intermediate, or more advanced, or whether you wish to just have fun, or see how far your potential can take you, why not come and try out my coaching. PTR trained, I love teaching Tennis in Cyprus as well as playing it and get great satisfaction to see my pupils advance.
I have also put together a full support team for those of you that are serious about tennis, or serious about getting fit. This includes a qualified nutritionist, personal trainer and sports therapist.
I look forward to seeing you out on the courts!
