I started playing at 35 years old. A complete beginner. USTA 2.5. Once I started winning at 3.0 I had dreams of becoming a 4.5!!! This is a story of listening to positive people.
Two Tennis Coaches.
The Woman Rosie Garza - from The Courtyard Tennis and Swim Club who told me that I could be a 4.5 tennis player (pictured here with our wooden rackets). The Man - from a tennis destination resort in San Diego who told me that I would NEVER be a 4.5.
7 years after starting tennis - I became ranked USTA 4.5.
Don’t listen to the nay sayers - they don’t know what you are capable of. Only hire coaches and spend time with friends that lift you up to reach for those goals!!
