Tennis is so much of a forward moving game, I marvel at how it truly mimics life.  Many of the tenets of the game parallel our daily experience, the physical, the psychological, the emotional.  Am I missing one?  

First off, the physical- we must move our feet, arms, and get the body moving.  Our equipment is so important, especially the right racquet, and of course good movable sneakers.  Don't forget a solar UVA/UVB sunglasses for outdoors, well-fitted clothing, always keeping our weight and body mass in check.  

The psychological- how to win, how to focus on not winning and play the point to the best of our abilities, let the point happen, is this possible?  

And the emotional- focus on the positive and move forward in the game, not getting hung up on a lost point or a won point five minutes before, the WIN!  the LOSS! Talk about losing focus in the point we are now in. What mood swings tennis can conjure! What does this teach us automatically?  

Be strong and do not get deterred from looking straight at the ball and getting it back over the net one more time. And look at the popularity of the game, it has been documented to be around since the 11th and 12th centuries, first origins routed to French Monks. 

The game is still moving forward, so much to see and experience, enjoy! ✈


  1. I so agree with you. Tennis mimics life and provides so many life lessons as well. I have come to realize this through all my shared junior tennis experiences with son , Erik (yep, I was one of those tennis moms) and now with my own struggling game. I am certainly seeing the value of junior tennis for Erik as he enters his young adult life and professional pursuits.

  2. Thanks for the comment, Susan! Hopefully those life lessons will continue as your game evolves as well, keep me posted!
