I know that, if I do not get back to working hard on fitness, I will not stick at 4.0. I need to lose about 20 lbs. and increase strength 10%. Nice to have a goal.
Good luck to you -- I am convinced you will make it with your dedicated efforts. Just remember, your strokes are probably already good enough. It is your mental and physical preparation that will make the difference...
Congratulations on the end-of-season 4.0 rating! I hope your seasons go well!
And thanks! I'll keep working on my game. I don't think I'm hitting at a 4.0 level, and I'm definitely not playing at the 4.0 level yet. My mental game is getting better, though, and that's given me two solid singles matches in a row (the last win I posted about and a respectable loss today). Onward!
