It was a shaky performance at the begining. I am talking about Roger Federer’s match with Lleyton Hewitt. Federer’s forehand, and backhand were out of control. It looked really dangerous, and he lost the first set. But, you know the result, Hewitt lost the 13th time.
OK, I am not a tennis player, so, I am not trying to discuss any technique here. I am a trader, so here is what I observed from the match. He knew his forehand and back hand strikes (do we call it strikes?) were unusual, kinda out of control. However, that did not stop him from trying. Again and again he hit the ball, and tried to gain back the rhythm that he needed. He was not afraid of hitting the ball again even though he had failed so many times. I was impressed.
When you have 3, 4 or 5 losses in row, do you start doubting yourself ? The message is pretty clear.
By the way, Maria is out….what the…..never mind…
