The only place I ever get really frustrated David Fales Womens Jersey and wound up is on the tennis court.

I think a lot of that is the result of all the time and effort that I've put into it over so many years. I've been a full-time tennis player for pretty much half my life and the frustration can come through when I'm not winning or playing as well as I would like, given the amount of effort.

Pressure also plays a part but that's something you have to deal with every day, learning to manage those expectations from yourself and from everyone else. There is no denying that at different times of the year it can be tough, and during Wimbledon I do find that stressful, but most of the year it's not too bad.

My team help a lot in dealing with all of that, both in the build-up to matches and at the side of the court when I'm playing. Having said that, I have played tournaments before when I've only had one person with me and I don't mind it too much.

It's not necessarily a negative if I feel like Branden Oliver Womens Jersey what's happening in the box is distracting me or taking away from what's happening on the court, which can happen, but at tough moments especially it can be a bit of a comfort blanket to look over at people you know when you're in front of a huge audience.

Having people on the side of the court who care about you can really help.
'I still enjoy just hitting a tennis ball'

My team would probably be the best ones to say for sure, but I'm pretty sure that in 10 or 11 years as a professional, I haven't cancelled or failed to show up for a single practice session.

I still get a lot of enjoyment out of just hitting a tennis ball most days.

I'm not denying that there are moments out on court when I might be gasping for breath, after four or five extremely physical rallies, and think, 'I need to try and shorten this point'. But actually waking up and not wanting to hit tennis balls? No, I enjoy it too much.

If there are days that are tougher to get going for then they tend to be in training rather than tournaments. I think as you get older it's the competition that really gets you excited.

Some days the training and practice can be http://www.nflbrownsofficialshop.com/Authentic-Donte-Whitner-Jersey quite repetitive and maybe a bit boring, but that's what you have to do if you want to stay at the top of the game. Knowing that is one of the benefits of experience.

But the competing side, that's never a problem. When I get the chance to take on the best players in the world at huge events like the ATP World Tour Finals, the Grand Slams or the Davis Cup, I can't imagine ever thinking I don't really want to do that.
