American teenager CiCi Bellis notched the biggest win of her young and promising career on Wednesday, defeating fourth-seed Agnieszka Radwanska 6-4, 2-6, 6-2 to reach the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships quarterfinals.
This last weekend inspired me to remember that the heart of a champion refuses to quit with the adamant belief they will succeed. Now I'm no fan of the New England Patriots and Tom Brady, but I cannot help to respect fighting to the end to achieve team and individual glory which leads me to a small, personal story about finding a way and refusing to quit.
A great way to improve your results during a singles point (once you get past the serve) is to follow this idea: draw a circle five feet in all directions from the "T" (where the center service line and the service line meet) and you will define the "circle of death".
Every tennis player is different. Some of us are Type A and some of us are laid back and just willing to take it as it comes. The best tennis players are able to find the right combination of consistency and aggressiveness.
