Tennis Quote of the Day: "Touch" and Evonne Goolagong Cawley

"In modern tennis, good hands don't get emphasized enough. Most people want to add power and heavy topspin to their game, not finesse and touch. But at the club level, feel and touch are just as important - and effective - as ever. If you want to learn more about touch, there is no better player to study than Evonne Goolagong Cawley, the former No. 1 from Australia who won seven major singles titles. [She] was as graceful as a player can be, and her hands were exceptional."
