Tennis Topic of the Day: Learning from Losing

"To get better at tennis, you have to lose. As my first coach Vic Braden used to say, half the people who play a tennis match on any given day are defeated. You lose all the time, and it can hurt . . . But the good news is that there's a lot to learn from losing.
***Make sure that you control the one aspect of losing that's always in your hands: you
***compliment the opponent and look at the loss appropriately
***assess what wasn't working in your game
***get back to the practice court, and look forward to the next opportunity to compete"
