Tennis and life have a lot in common. At least I think so. There are the athletes on the court, battling it out, fighting for every point. It’s about stamina, speed, reaction, game plans and how clever you play and how much you understand the game.
It’s also about how persistent you are. It’s about not giving up until the very last point is played. And this is why I admire some of the players out there. Because that is exactly what they do. They might not have the biggest serve or the strongest forehand or backhand. They might not be the fastest, they might not even be the smartest players. But they just don’t give up. They keep fighting and in doing so manage to turn a game around.
As stupid as it sounds I often took this ability as inspiration for my life. I thought a couple of time that even if the score stands at 0:6, 0:5, 0:40 the game is not lost yet, the set is not lost yet and the match is not lost yet. As long as that last point is not lost, you always have a chance to turn things around.
