Carlos Moya’s (pictured above at Roland Garros 2019) coaching has helped Rafael Nadal in his 4 most recent major titles. I have not done anything like that, but I still think the quotes below are worth considering if one plays or follows tennis.
“Great shots win points, but good shots win matches.” – Don Isaacs, a fellow coach at St. X
“A bad day on the tennis court beats a good day at work.” – Ed Martin, my dad
“The good thing is there is always another tennis tournament, and you can always ask someone else on a date.” Greg Stephenson former coach at Bellarmine University to me after a tough tournament loss and a break-up hit in the same week of high school.
“Experience is a great advantage. The problem is that when you get the experience, you’re too damned old to do anything about it.” – Jimmy Connors (this seems especially true when I hit with high school players)
“Tennis is a tough sport. Holding serve makes it a whole lot easier.” – Preston Cameron
– Both from Vic Braden
