For the past few summers I have been involving myself heavily in tennis. I do clinics, lessons, play for hours at a time each day and have gotten better drastically. A lot is due to the amazing pros and coaches I have had the past few summers but I know a big part is giving the time to it.
It feels great to come off the court after a very long day of good tennis. I got home today feeling tired but proud of myself. I also think I might actually be learning to like playing doubles. Shhh, don’t tell my coaches. I will forever be a singles player. It’s only July but I feel like I have so much higher to go and I also feel like I have the time which is rare. Usually I hit this point mid-end of of August.
I’m excited to step back on the court and keep crushing it tomorrow and the day after that. Until then, I tend to my tired muscles and look forward to a night of well deserved rest.
