We get better at what we practice

Tennis is both an individual and team sport. This time of the year we have a lot of you practicing to compete. But sometimes we hear grumbling off the court after a match with players wondering why they can't play like they do in practice.

Well we say, you get better at what you practice. So next time you're on the court take a moment to reflect, what are you practicing?
  • Stretching before and after
  • Hitting recklessly
  • Being generous with your comments
  • Skeptically shooting down ideas for lineups and pushing your own agenda
  • Having energy (moving your feet)
  • Grumbling
  • Looking for opportunities to improve your game
  • Dreaming pipe dreams with no substance
  • Blaming others for your fault
  • Working on a particular shot
  • Giving useful feedback
  • Making an effort
  • Being on time
  • Hitting with accuracy
  • Playing it safe
  • Positive attitude

Practice is just that, a combination of positives and negatives. It's up to you now to decide the outcome of your next practice by seeing what will outweigh the other.
