Washington DC – Kevin is serving. It’s 5-4. 30-15 in the 1st Set Semi-Final…
Boom! Big serve with a mid court transition forehand. Time to hit a winner. Missed it wide cross court.
Boom! Big serve with a short forehand on the right side. Routine forehand up the line. Missed it wide.
Declarations. Putting your words behind your action. A commitment to your script and your game. It’s an important part of your tennis development.
And if you watched the Citi Open in DC during Kevin’s semi-final vs Jack Sock the court side cameras picked up Kevin’s declaration. His mantra? Commit to playing aggressive. The fear of not playing your optimal game greater than the fear of the result.
Are you ready to declare your game with your word? As simple as it sounds it all starts with this present action.
Hint: How did Kevin do with that break point? See the results here.
