Be a fighter
The importance of training and of being a fighter by Matteo Russo
Competitive tennis is such an exciting and extreme sport and many compare it to boxing. A player constructs every single tennis point in a game to create the opportunity to knock out (K.O.) your opponent and to avoid the vice versa.
To help you understand this concept, you must enjoy training hard with continuity. By that I mean that every time that you’re on court you should give 100%, hit every ball as if it was a match point of a Grand Slam.
Improvements in your technique will help you develop more confidence and ability to make appropriate choices regarding the shot you choose. Most importantly, a competitive tennis player should be set on this way of thinking: “Be a fighter”
The following video shows what I am talking about. One of the greatest fighters/player in the history of tennis – Jimmy Connors - in one of the best tennis points ever played.
