“You shouldn’t have to beat two people to win a singles match.”
Don’t be your own worst enemy! Keep your thoughts and self-talk positive. Take care of the things you need to before your match, so that all you have to worry about is the ball.
John Isner is a big dude… and his serve is even bigger! At 6-foot-10, you’d think that Isner would be an NBA player, but he’s actually one of the best tennis players in the world.
Here’s some info on the big guy:
• Born in North Carolina.
• Won the longest professional tennis match ever (11 hours, 5 minutes).
• Played college tennis @ Georgia.
• Hit a record 113 aces in his marathon match.
• Fastest serve 149.9.
Donald Young is in the fourth round of the 2011 US Open… this is what I’ve been hoping for for about 5 years now! The 22-year old American was dubbed “The Future of US Tennis” back when he was the top junior player in the world. It didn’t happen. But he now is showing the results that his promising junior career had us hoping would be a constant.
The lefty is having by far his best showing in any of the majors.
Rafael Nadal vs Andy Murray and Roger Federer vs Novak Djokovic, could you ask for a better semifinals?! Djokovic’s record-winstreak on the line against the best of all time and the winner to play the greatest clay-courter ever, if he can survive Murray… count me in, this is awesome!
