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.

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.
