Tennis Quote of the Day: Patterns and Executions

"Elite sports are about patterns and executions, and the best athletes repeatedly do things you can't defend against. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's hook shot is a good example. You know it's coming, you just can't stop it. The reality is that [the best players such as Nadal and Agassi] play by forcing everyone to adjust to their patterns. To offset their patterns, you have to incur tremendous risk."
