What stories of tennis addiction do you have? After a year of intensive playing, I am noticing some signs... For example, I drilled on Tues and Wed for almost 3 hours each evening. (Feeds to FH, BH, approach, overheads, serves, serve returns, volleys, point play, etc) I also noticed my arm starting to feel a bit ragged I am hitting 100% during training, and need to be mindful of injuries. I said to myself, I am spent, there is no way I should play tomorrow. By noon the next day, I am thinking how I will just go practice some serves or maybe I'll just do a short session with the ball machine. My hitting partner, 20 years my junior, decided he needed a rest day. So, I had to force myself to not play, and just relax for an evening. By tomorrow, I will be feverishly trying to find someone to hit. Also, I have been hitting 4-5x a week, and sometimes 2x a day. Sometimes, I start to feel mentally burnt out, and some days I am not in the mood to hit. But, I have certain goals, and I intend to meet them, and I suck it up. This is work. One day, I will feel burnt, like this is so stupid. I should do something more constructive with my life efforts and energy. Within 2 days, the desire is back. It never lasts more than 2-3 days before I am jonesing to go work on some tennis. I can't not even imagine sustaining twice this level like an ATP pro does for 15 years. Every single one of them must absolutely despise the game. What stories of tennis addiction do you have?
