As often is in life - my Doubles Partner (and husband) and I are very different people and players.
He is a powerful athlete - a focused force.
I am a playful jokester - and tricky.
The key to us playing well together (on and off the court) is to understand how my talents and skills can fit with his. I respect his way as he does mine. He doesn’t try to change me - and I don’t him.
We are all unique - and have a contribution on the court - as partners - if we focus on the positive - our partners play MUCH BETTER.
Our influence over our partners performance is HUGE. Our attitude, thoughts and behaviors can lose or win a match!
