Owning Your Game On Red Clay
Lyon, France -- From the stadium courts of Lyon ATP Tour 250, just before a practice session with Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, I walked the courts to check the condition of the clay. While working with players, I heard and overheard so many complaints about the conditions of the clay, and the ability to manage the point when the ball is jumping around.
I took a minute to reflect and offer my thoughts to players on video.
My overarching message was the following:
"Own your position, not your circumstance. Remember that you are the potter and this is the clay!"
