it's like if i ask you - when do you eat spaghetti and you answer - when they're cooked
i believe the question was more likely - how often do you restring
every few weeks.
Dont want to say Negative things in Life but this Thread tests my Fucking Patience.
then don't fucking post here. If you waiting for me to retire, don't hold your fucking breath.
Johnny Groove reminds me of Agassi Anyone else see the resemblance?
we both have great passion and both play at high level well into our thirties.
There's an underlying (well it's pretty obvious I guess) problem here that you see with tons of club tennis players, probably around the World. They're really confident, but usually confident about the wrong things.. They constantly spout how they're going to win tournaments and get on the ATP rankings etc etc.. but when it comes down to an actual match, that confidence doesn't shine through. Instead they start making early excuses about why they might lose, or show an inferiority complex regarding their current level, or just play as if they lack the confidence to win matches against even the weakest of opposition.
You get the feeling if they just narrowed down their hopes and expectations and focused on being confident and pumped up about their next match instead, they would have a lot more success by the time they end their tennis career. Could be the difference between a career and a "career".
Of course, I'm just talking in general. Nobody in this particular thread should change to better their performance levels.. ever.
that's hardly me. I go on court knowing strengths and weaknesses and look to improve daily. If I lose I lose. But I leave knowing what to work on next. Yes I want to be one of the best ever, but lets focus on woodfield first round this weekend first.

what good is tons of talk if you don't TRULY change how you do things
also if you're talking and dreaming more than doing things that is when the problem becomes you're dreaming/speculating more than DOING
also I enjoy a fun hopefulness towards club play and joking about the future, but the issue becomes if you waste a ton of years being naive and planning for huge success, then it just looks sad.
riddle me this: which is more sad, the guy dedicating his life to something he believes in, or the clown who writes essays why he can't do it?
