Of course winning is fun.....but for me the camaraderie, support and strategizing with my doubles partner is really what it's about.

When I first started playing tennis in 2009 - I had a huge list of reasons WHY I SHOULD LOSE!After all - I hadn’t played before - and I was 35 years old! I was also 195 lbs! And also my genes weren’t good - none of my parents or grandparents or beyond were athletes!But one day - I had a breakthrough.Instead of making excuses for losing - arguing for my limitations - I realized that I had the POWER TO CHANGE MY THINKING!!!
