BE A GENEROUS AND CONSIDERATE partner! Thing about your partners needs - not just your own. Have a discussion around warm up time, tennis strategy, etiquette and other preferences to make sure that you remain on the same page.
What do you do when you partner just can't play? When she is missing her serves, approach shots and volleys? Well - this is what I do:STAY FOCUSED ON YOUR OWN GAME AND KEEP POSITIVE ABOUT YOUR PARTNER TOO.If you get mad at them or lose faith - then you too will start playing terribly. Stay centered and optimistic - and be grateful that you get to play!!
When I respect elements of my partners or opponents game - I make a note of it to emulate it! Sometimes it's their strokes, or strategy or even just their attitude or fitness level! It's fun looking for the good in people - finding their best - and using it to learn to become better myself!
