Thanks for the work you put in today. All the returning players are noticeably better than you were a year ago at this time. Your strokes are better, and more importantly, you are playing more intelligent tennis. One of the coolest parts of my job is seeing how quickly the people who work hard improve. To the first-year players who played today, think about how impressive it is that you are already among the top players!
With that in mind, we do have another tournament next weekend, and my expectations are unchanged. I expect us to play dominating tennis at all 6 flights. I expect us to establish ourselves as the best JV team in the toughest Conference in West Michigan. Today, our efforts earned us 2nd place, which means we have one week to improve enough to get to the top.
Here is what I expect out of you:
1. Think about 2 VERY SPECIFIC things you are going to do differently next Saturday. (For example, let's say want to be more aggressive, be specific about exactly when and how you are going to do it.)
2. POST WHAT THOSE 2 THINGS ARE BY MAKING A COMMENT IN THIS BLOG. This will allow Coach Matt to know how to help you this week. Also, I want to know so I can look for the new EVEN-AWESOMER you next week!!!
3. Use the matches this week to practice your new ideas.
4. When next weekend rolls around, be ready to dominate:)
Good luck with all your matches next week, and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
