Now we head into the Summer hard court season. There are a couple of things we have to consider as the summer is upon us. First we are back on the hard courts. It always takes a few days to get the body use
to the pounding it takes playing on such a hard surface. Also with playing for over 2 straight months on the hard courts all of the players feel the stress, soreness, and wear and tear on their bodies. It is also very, very hot and humid in many of the cites.
If you have never been in Indianapolis, Washington DC, and Cincinnati in the in the summer, it is hard to describe just how tough the conditions are. So as we look at the next two months it will be important for Andy to continue to work on his conditioning and start getting his body adjusted to the Heat and Humidity.
