Emotions

A US Open Experience

 
 
 
 
 
 
When playing tournaments, try to avoid emotional highs and lows.  You will likely spend a lot of time and money on going to the tournament.  I realize that you want to win.  Yes, I realize that. However, if you become too emotional, then you will not be able to think clearly and perform your best.  Let me illustrate…

Team Spirit

Read about the team of five

 
 
 
I don’t really know the Alguetti family.  However, I have seen them, heard them (YES HEARD THEM) and played against them.  The one thing that they have, which I really admire…    is team spirit.  The family of five can out-cheer any team in the US.  Regardless if they are playing a preliminary round or taking down Timothy Wang in the Men’s Singles, they have a fighting attitude and together they are supported by their team of five.

I will work very very hard mentally, physically, strategically, and tactically - together, we can do it. I will continue to post updates as I hire professional practice partners to train with me here in Ohio, travel the country for training, and complete regularly in tournaments all to prepare for the Olympic Trials.
