Message from the Top

Just a little post-US Open bonus...

Here's a quote directly from the top man himself, Roger Federer about what the keys to his best tennis really are:

"After winning the Dubai Open for the fourth time in 2007, Federer said: 'Previously I always thought it was just tactical and technique, but every match has become almost mental and physical – I try to push myself to move well. I try to push myself not to get upset and stay positive, and that's what my biggest improvement is over all these years. Under pressure I can see things very clearly.' "

(Quoted from: “From teenage tantrums to sublime success” by Thomas Stephens, April 26, 2007, online article at

What do Federer's words mean for you?


Read his quote again carefully, Roger PUSHES HIMSELF TO MOVE WELL. When you move properly, the rest of your game will flow without too much conscious effort. So take the advice of one of the greatest-if not THE greatest-player in the history of the tennis to heart and immediately raise the level of your play by focusing on moving your best on court.
