Frustration | I Demand I Play Better!

IMG_0443Welcome to my second Tennis Journey Blog, so I got back into tennis after 16yrs of not touching a racket demanding I play as good as I did in my 20s!!!

Sadly this wasn’t to be, I and our club couch could see I had the technique still there, but the consistency wasn’t there, I needed more hours on the court, my goal was to start playing competitive tennis again by the summer of 2017, to have enough confidence in my game to represent my club.

It was tough! I have the mentality of a pro athlete still and that will never change, I demand perfection from myself and I hate to lose! I really hate to lose!!!

By the Autumn I decided to give the Swindon Men’s Doubles Winter League a go, I was told it wasn’t as serious as the main summer league, so I thought let’s give it a go.

Now, I’ve always been a singles player, it suites my game and at least if I lose I can blame myself.

After two doubles matches in the winter league I pulled out, it just wasn’t competitive enough for me, I needed a partner that was as hungry to win as I was.

It was time to get serious, I needed to up my game, I would not miss a practice session for the rest of 2016.
