“Make the decision to become the world’s best. It will serve you well.” – Raj Gavurla
As an athlete regardless of your sport there are times when you aren’t completely “in the zone”, however parts of your game are.
What worked for Roger was him being “in the zone” serving the ball. Being “in the zone” in all areas is best but being “in the zone” in just one area a player is still hard to beat.
Tiafoe is real and when he learns to hit his approach shot with more skill and volley by blocking the ball he will win more and might win a grand slam. Excellent athleticism, very good serve and forehand, solid backhand. Needs to work on consistently transforming his mental performance skills as all players do because that’s what separates the world’s best from other athletes.

Something annoys me every time it happens. While doing my track training at a local high school (the high school is not important) I see and hear teenagers using racial slurs and denigrating each other. I know we are taking about teenagers whether they are thinking they are “being cool” or “using it as intimidation”.
A few days ago, it was something I hadn’t seen before. Football players were using racial slurs while their coaches were present. One set of coaches were high school coaches and the other set of coaches were coaching middle school kids preparing to play for their high school. Racial slurs were being used by the high school teenagers to their teammates during practice and while taking water breaks. The middle school team wasn’t using racial slurs or denigrating each other. In fact, during their conditioning a teammate was last in finishing his track work and the whole team ran to him with him finishing ahead of some of them on purpose. Obviously, learning how to run track would make it easier for this boy as the players and coaches are relying mostly on talent at that age so he doesn’t always finish last.
Stopping the “nonsense” of teammates using racial slurs and denigrating each other has high-value worth for forward performance progress socially and environmentally. Leadership by the coaches would be of great use. If I was a coach, I wouldn’t allow my players (team) to use racial slurs or denigrating word choices. My working with athletes at all levels the use of racial slurs and denigrating word choices might work temporarily but not as they progress to realize it takes real learning and application of skill to progress from high school to college to professional in anything they choose to do in education, sports, business, and life.
Cultivating this approach develops, builds, and grows character and dignity which is of high-value worth as we are experiencing societal and cultural transformation in America and throughout the globe.
