"Everyone was making a photo sharing APP or social hour, we're like there's two hundred social networks can someone. You Know Cure Kovic. Have Blown. Let's work on that one. You know it's like. Too soon but. But. I think too. Often your point though is is the technologist shaped highway perceive. And Mary was point is is right on us. So I think of US Steve Norman and. New Zealand sent me this or Australia using I keep saying New Zealand Australia. Had, sent me this this I mean, i. had that backwards whatever anyway this diagram and it showed three circles on it and the one left say sisal of basketball the one, the middle size tennis ball in the one on the right. It was the size of basketball. And he said, you know this is the way people perceive sort of the necessary allocation of resources and sales in the first basketball left is top of the funnel. The tennis ball was selling. And the second basketball was closing. And It's just completely out of whack. First of all closings outcomes, not a process. We spend a disproportionate amount time on top of funnel. and. Very, little comparatively on the middle where the selling were actually takes place. When you look at Scam Lincoln and look at the comparative amounts of suffering about top of funnel versus. Discovery Qualification and and so on which are the meat of where the rubber meets the road we actually win the deals. And we need to change that I tell people. You know we'll know we're on the right track. When instead of sales people saying well, I'm signed up to go to outbound this year. I've signed up to inbound this year they signed up to go to discovering qualification this year. Right, where's our worst our conference on qualification whereas our conference on Discovery? Those are the things people need to get better at what's really interesting. I was talking to a Cmo of science air quantum. He was talking about how marketing had figured out. He's a friend. He's awesome right. So he marketing had figured out specialization quite a long time ago. You don't have your seo person in your graphic designer working on your you ax in there, not necessarily buying your media were doing your branding. So they get now the sales structure is being revolutionized by specialization. and. So having these conferences is more of a mission statement or political statement about in many ways that people have become too obsessed on inbound because the beauty of the automated tools, you can make money when you sleep because you can send so many emails and when I sent a million emails for one hundred customers. So it's only about a thousand contacts a month, which is pretty humane relatively, but you could buy one of these things and thirty thousand and just pick up the low hanging fruit and you're not really selling your order taking, but if you have enough. Tam Total addressable market. For. So many of these companies are doing it though people warned me about my book they said look you gotta put a caution. So I actually have a creed in front of like you're going to read this book to learn about these weapons of mass communication and the goal here is to send it in smaller batches more thoughtfully. And to take your time and make it quality. It's just like you can drive your car two, hundred miles an hour, but it's no longer safe in might be fun. 'CAUSE YOU'RE GONNA get you'RE GONNA get bigger than a ticket a map that is the lesson though of that we haven't learned about the way we're using technology and sales is just because you can do something like to miles an hour doesn't mean that you should and but there's none of questioning going on about. Well, how should this change because a short term oriented is I WANNA do is. Yeah Goose thing and try to get an exit or some sort of outcome from it. and. We're GONNA see. As we already do I mean you look at. Sixty percent venture funded companies that a minimum fail right on you've talked to investors. I say up investments six fail to our middling successes into our. Okay. So. This is happening same things playing out this assets not. Revenue. Model the way we structure selling is not. The Savior. Threes in these companies succeed. Yes I mean I. I just so like respect how Aaron has developed a work for the new generations, but I do believe that just. Looking at a sales organization and structuring it as STR's eight. Yea- CSM's the forecast. Here's the benchmark how we're going to do it. Everyone's agreeing on this model even the commission. Structured out we what we can't change as a penal obviously, if you're not making margin, you're not profiting. You know you don't have the good fundamentals of business. We can't change the free market economic system, but some people are doing crypto currency and. Distributed General Ledgers smart regarding contracts and doing things with blockchain that are really wild and phenomenal because the transparency levels but I think for now. What's an action but they don't sell that's just part of the process. That's not. Influencing customer to buy from you. Yeah that's true I. mean that's that's something we we got hung up on the you know the The drippings? and. We're missing some of the fundamental points which is. We fundamentally have a ton of companies that are employing a certain s inside sales model that's predicated on a land of plenty at the top of the funnel. And Poor execution at the bottom but we put enough into the top of the funnel we get away with it. Yes. Sir Thrown hanging food sausage grinder in a from a mix metaphors I think what the new technology can allow us to do is point the artificial intelligence machine learning another problem. And that's the issue of how much selling time is being spent. If you have a serious person who's trying to optimize for contact rates. Or the amount of replies the amount of discovery calls that they can do. I think that's where this tech could be phenomenal. 'cause what I'd like to do is show to work do less than twenty percent of filing an Admin and the resting care by robots and I would like to be on the phone like talking with you. Being, shocked having insight like being challenged, growing, learning, hearing your stories, your references gained from this I don't gain from your template emails. Well but here's thing any wrote about that is you know you mentioned that the reps go thirty one percent of their time selling. But here's here's the problem with that. It's always been the case. I started selling forty plus years ago well spent a third of our time. The stat was the same interesting. But hasn't changed. So it's not going to change right. You should never design a system assuming that is good. Bat numbers going to change and says, people the challenge is, how do we make people more productive with the time they spend selling? So, how can I get you to go from? One. Hundred dollars of revenue that you generate for every hour, you spend selling actual selling to two hundred dollars. That's productivity increase. How do I get you to generate more revenue per selling our? That's that should be the metric that we spend focused on everything.

Fed Cup to be renamed Billie Jean King Cup

"The Fed Cup has been renamed the Billie Jean King Cup and there's those big plan fair announcements about this week and it's a lovely lovely thing I think it feels so so right there is I think one caveat David that you pointed out on twitter which. Which I very much agree with. How How how much does it really? Well first of all, I agree with you I think I'm ready that it's been renamed. That's The. Caveat was the if we are renaming the Fed, cut the Billie Jean King Cup. It feels even further away that we're GONNA end up having the the great mixed team competition or Fit Slam slammers I'd love it to be. A combination of the Fed Cup or the Billie Jean King Cup in Davis. Cup, that I think the sports so. Hugely needs that feels further away. But maybe maybe that's maybe that's not the case. Maybe the fact that her name is on it and she is may be involved more. We'll bring that closer together because she so much wants that is well, she's. The biggest campaign for. Men and women working together and and being on the same page and being on the same bill for goodness sake. and. Hopefully. That will come in the future I mean. There are those events just don't exist this year. So this is the news news, the renaming, and and that alone really really about just one article Chris Clare in the New York Times right timing done an interview it but a Jianqing, I really enjoy a recommended he coach Bud Collins. Once. Saying that the Fed Cup is a splendid idea with a lame name and he quotes spitting Jean King saying. When a woman does something always think we do it for women when a guy does something, they never say they did it for the guys and so one of the changes I hope I can talk about more and more is that I would like people think that we. Are Doing it for the sport not for Women's Sports and I I thought. Absolutely right. It's It's about time attitudes changed. Yeah I thought that was. A perfect summation of both what Billie? Jean King is about an also how how this could be a a way forward for kind of mixed event and and a combination of men's and women's. Competition together but I mean personally that that that's not been my vision for mixed team event I've I've not thought that it should replace. Davis carpet. Now, village Inking Cup I genuinely think that it could go along alongside them. Both I don't think you need to. Get rid of them and combine it into one I. Think you could have a mixed team event like we had with the Hoffman Cup but make bigger thing out of that, and now we've got that point in the calendar with the ATP Cup and that I think that's the point. Many Times. Cup. Turn. So. Many cups when you did all the cups said back to back, it's Oh it's cup overload kind feels to be redundant to be talking about the of the moment you. Know. What the tent tennis Kinda is anymore but I mean personally I'm just saying I think there's room the space. It would be a great thing for a mix team competition to exist alongside. The Davis Cup in now Billie Jean King Cup that we already have our cup runneth over. A. Carrillo.

"Suffering minor injuries. The cause of that fire is still unknown at 5 19 and emotional show of respect and honor of the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. ABC is Devon Dwyer, describing the scene at the Supreme Court building where Ginsberg lies in repose such a moving scene, especially to see those legions of young current and former law clerks. Some not so young now that worked with her on the bench in her 27 years, they were lined up across the court plaza all the way up the steps by the dozens It was so powerful to see a really poignant reminder that even though justice Ginsburg has left us from legacy lives on in so many young Walt lawyers, including others across the country that were inspired by the work that she did, and over 100 of Ginsberg's law clerks were seen standing on the Supreme Court steps when her body arrived, several of them serving as pallbearers as her casket. Was brought inside at 5 20 decades before she became known as the Notorious RBG Ruth Bader Ginsburg taking up the case of Abby Selden 1972. The 15 year old just wanted to try out for the varsity tennis team in Teaneck, New Jersey, even though her coaches said she was better than all the boys on the squad. She was not a lot of step foot on the court. So Ginsberg, attorney at the time, took her case to federal court in one because of that lawsuit, the New Jersey State Athletic Association changing its rules barring girls from boy sports. Sheldon now lives in Wellfleet down the Cape paying tribute to Ginsberg on Facebook, saying that experience taught her to stick up for herself for what is right. We'll QO over 19 cases in Boston trending upward, and Mayor Marty Walsh is inching close to entering that red zone as outlined by the state. They're just not there just yet, and we'll have more on that throughout the morning. It is 5 21. On this Thursday morning, and we've get traffic and weather together. That's.

Lots of players play with with certain patterns in they do specific things at certain times. So it's it's know we speak regularly before the matches. Go through what the opponents, what we might expect them to do what they did against them last time if they did it against the lost time and it was successful low probably good again, if if they didn't work than the opponent will change it. So we've got to be prepared for things to change and it might change through the course match nobody plays exactly the same way all the time

Thanks to her father's job as a newspaper executive and the war was fought far away. The war coverage also sold -papers. So while you're a burned, the Barnes family were doing just fine the news that kept her family wealthy told a clear cut story of good and evil of following the paths of righteousness, and since they also showed young Suzanne how easily ideology and rhetoric could spark world changing violence despite the ongoing war, the Barnes family were picture of. Success Suzanne spent her childhood and Idyllic Arizona Country Club since swimming pools making the most of the warm desert climate on paper Suzanne lived a charmed life. But behind closed doors, she struggled with mental distress Suzanne experienced voices and visions which she insisted came from psychic powers. Vanessa. Is going to take over on the psychology here and throughout the episode please note Vanessa is not a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist but she has done a lot of research for this show. Thanks Greg according to a two thousand seventeen study from Yale University psychiatrists the hallucinatory. Of Self identified psychics has considerable overlap with the accounts of voice hearing patients. The only explanation Suzanne had for her childhood premonitions was clear audience however, the frequency of Suzanne's voices and later visual hallucinations suggests she was suffering from a mental health disorder of some kind former FBI criminal profiler. Delong speculates that Suzanne may have had schizophrenia which is marked by auditory and visual hallucinations. In any case, Suzanne seemed to suffer from a form of psychosis still undiagnosed young Suzanne built or identity around what she believed were her psychic powers to her the visions and voices that played out in her head were glimpses into the past and future. These supposed predictive powers made the world feel different to Suzanne. The people around her glimmered with after images only she could see and echoed with voices audible only to her even at a young age. This second sight made her feel separate from other children. She knew she was special Suzanne specialness went largely unchallenged though her claims of visions and voices were dismissed by those around her. It was clear that she wasn't like the other kids she behaved oddly, and this eccentricity further alienated her from classmates as A. Result Suzanne was withdrawn at school and her stunted social development dovetailed with academic difficulties. It must have felt there was an endless series of road in her way preventing her from having a normal childhood and at home weren't much better. Suzanne built detached from her wealthy family and the privilege circles in which they moved though she probably wanted for nothing she never quite got the hang of a role as a prim and proper child of wealth but that doesn't mean she didn't try in her teenage years Suzanne molded.

"Side. They help the information shows the importance of taking air quality. Seriously. Well, speaking of air quality seems to get in a lot better here in Seattle special all the smoke clearing out But now we've got clouds have got rain. So what's next? We've traded one issue for the next s for sure. We had a few days in there that we're nice and quiet and calm, including the first afternoon of fall the second one today not so much as promised. It turned stormy very quickly. We've had buckets of rain, gusty winds. We're going to continue to see the unsettled weather overnight through tomorrow, including a pretty good shot at some hail and thunder and lightning. And then by Friday, it gets very soggy again. So it just keeps on coming. So if all of a sudden today felt like a blur to you, there was a good reason for it. This was the view out of most of our windows most of the day. And of course, Sigma usually has that special view of the needle. It was definitely a blurry when this afternoon with that rain falling right on cue as fall got underway. So this is the view over the Elliott Bay A tower cam, big fish our camp and it's a little quieter at the moment. We've got partly cloudy skies. If you look up, you could even see the stars now between the clouds that are racing across 59 degrees. Winds were still little bit gusty. We continue to see a big blow here and their highest wins today. Generally 40 to 45 MPH, especially at the north. End of the kits happen. Insular. We had a report of a really strong best out of a skunk bay. They're from Greg Johnson and 40 apiece for Forks and for Aberdeen. So that's why we lost power in a few spots today to greater imagery. It's still It's a little bit busy, not quite as soggy as it was earlier this afternoon, but you can see some heavy rain there over the north End of the Cascades the blue That's the snow falling above about 8000 ft over the top of Mount Rainier. So anybody crossing the past late at night, and that's mostly everybody doing the truck and there over the tops of the highway's going to run into some wet pavement there over Snoqualmie Pass. Otherwise back toward the coast. Also, mercifully, a dryer break. It was just a soak fest this afternoon. Still some heavier showers occasionally with some lightning in the mix there over the Olympic Peninsula, and those continue to push very slowly across the mountains, eventually ending up toward Bell Fair and Bremer tennis. We head into the 12 o'clock hours here in the overnight As far as the temps right now, fifties and low sixties as we head into tomorrow, this doesn't look like much, but that's our weather maker. That's unsettled air kind of looks like pieces of popcorn. They loved to get going after front has gone through and they're going to give us a good chance for some thunder, Lightning and hail later tomorrow, so it stays pretty unsettled at times on Thursday overnight tonight, occasionally damn attempts dropping down into the fifties where we Already are right now, for the most part, so I'm not falling much further than.

"How it finally broke southerners obstinacy and destined the salesman to start a at Philadelphia. January eighth nineteen, thirty, eight. That was my day. The place. Washington DC. This last real merry go round had started the day before Christmas and I had really accomplished a lot in those fourteen days. I my new wife had walked out baggage and furniture. Then the apartment landlord had thrown me out of the empty apartment and the finish was the loss of another job. After a couple of days, dollar hotels and one night in the Pokey I. Finally landed on my mother's doorstep shaking apart with several days beard and of course, broke as usual. Many of these same things had happened to me many times before. But this time they had all descended together for me this was it here I was thirty nine years old and a complete washout nothing had worked. Mother would take me in only if I would say locked in a small store room and give her my clothes and shoes, we had played this game before. This is the way Jackie found me lying on a cot in my skivvies with hot and cold sweats pounding heart and that awful itchy scratchiness all over. Somehow, I had always managed to avoid DT's. I had not asked for help and seriously doubt that I would have but fits an old school friend of mine had persuaded. Jackie to call on me. Had, he come two or three days later I think I would have thrown him out but he hit when I was open for anything. Jackie arrived about seven in the evening and talked until three. A M. I don't remember much of what he said but I did realize that here was another guy exactly like me he had been in the same laughing academies in the same jails known the same loss of jobs, same frustration, same boredom, and the same loneliness. If anything he had known all of them even better and more often than I. Yet, he was happy relaxed, competent and laughing. That night for the first time in my life I really let down my hair and admitted my general loneliness. Jackie told me about a group of fellows in New York of who my old friend fits was one who had the same problem I had and who by working together to help each other where not now drinking and we're happy like himself. He said something about God or a higher power. But I brushed that off that was for the birds not for me little more of our talk stayed in my memory but I do know I. Slept the rest of that night while before I had never known what a real night's sleep was. This is my introduction to this understanding fellowship although is to be more than a year later before our society was to bear the name alcoholics anonymous. All of us in Ainhoa the tremendous happiness that is sobriety, but there are also tragedies. My sponsor Jackie was one of these. He brought in many of our original members yet. He himself could not make it and died about Gaullism. The lesson of his death still remains with me yet I often wonder what would have happened if somebody else had made that I call on me. So I always say that as long as I remember January eighth that is how long I will remain sober. The Age old question in a is which came first the neurosis or the alcoholism. I like to think I was fairly normal before alcohol took over. My early life was spent in Baltimore where my father was a physician and a grain merchant, my family lived in very prosper circumstances, and while both my parents drank sometimes too much neither was an alcoholic. Father was very well integrated person and while mother was high strung and a bit selfish and demanding our home life was reasonably harmonious. There were four of US children and although both of my brothers later became alcoholic one died of alcoholism. My sister has never taken a drink in her life. Until I was thirteen I attended public schools with regular promotions and average grades. I have never shown any particular talents nor have I had any real frustrating ambitions? At Thirteen, I was packed off to a very fine Protestant boarding school in Virginia where I stayed for years graduating without any special achievements in sports I made the track and tennis teams I got along well with the other boys and had a fairly large circle of acquaintances but no intimate friends. I. Was Never Homesick and was always pretty self-sufficient. However here I probably took my first step towards my coming alcoholism by developing a terrific version to all churches and established religions at this school. We had Bible readings before each meal and Church Services, four times on Sunday, and I became so rebellious at this that I swore I would never join or go to any church except for weddings or funerals. At Seventeen, I entered the university really to satisfy my father who wanted me to study medicine there as he had. That is where I had my first drink and I still remember it for every I drink afterwards did exactly the same trick. I could feel it go right through every bit of my body and down to my very toes. But. Each drink after the first seemed to become less effective and after three or four, they all seemed like water. I was never a hilarious drunk the more I drank the quieter I got and the drunk I got the harder I fought to stay sober. So it is clear that I never had any fun out of drinking. I would be the sober seeming one in the crowd and all of a sudden. Drunk Est.. Even that first night I blacked out, which leads me to believe that I was an alcoholic from my very first drink. The first year in college I just got by with my studies and that year I majored in Poker and drinking I refuse to join any fraternity as I wanted to be a freelance and that year my drinking was confined to one night stands once or twice a week.

At Seventeen, I entered the university really to satisfy my father who wanted me to study medicine there as he had. That is where I had my first drink and I still remember it for every I drink afterwards did exactly the same trick. I could feel it go right through every bit of my body and down to my very toes. But. Each drink after the first seemed to become less effective and after three or four, they all seemed like water. I was never a hilarious drunk the more I drank the quieter I got and the drunk I got the harder I fought to stay sober. So it is clear that I never had any fun out of drinking. I would be the sober seeming one in the crowd and all of a sudden. Drunk Est.. Even that first night I blacked out, which leads me to believe that I was an alcoholic from my very first drink. The first year in college I just got by with my studies and that year I majored in Poker and drinking I refuse to join any fraternity as I wanted to be a freelance and that year my drinking was confined to one night stands once or twice a week.

Whats Next for the U.S. Air Forces Next Generation Air Dominance Program

"I'm wondering if you can kind of go back and tell us what is next generation air dominance, and where did that program emerged from? How did we get from nowhere to a demonstrator because didn't just happen like that. Well, it it. It seemed to I. Mean You know when? Roper is Dr over the essence secretary of the Air Force Brat Position Technology Logistics. Announced very abruptly yesterday during his speech that this flight demonstrator had flown I. think that everybody by surprise I wasn't expecting that kind of announcement during his speech today and It's exciting I mean I. I can't be as as an aviation aerospace journalist with an interest in military aviation I mean this that's the that's as good as it gets a secret of flight demonstrator for new fighter that you. You hear about the first time it's confirmed that there's nothing more exciting except for actually seeing it, which I hope we see when they but it turns out. I. Mean there there is a paper trail there's a, there's a little breadcrumbs that have been sprinkled. Along the path of public comments, I air force leaders over the past couple years leading to this, and some of them have only become sensible in retrospect now that we know that this thing really does exist. But in some ways are actually quite explicit and I think I'd point initially to an exchange ahead with journal Goldfine who just retired a month ago but a year ago at the same event even though it wasn't virtual at the time, it was in Bersin. Gerald goldfine chief of staff had a press conference I was asking about next generation air dominance in my big question was about the propulsion side of it congress at the time was was expressing quite a bit of frustration with the air force because it's been billions of dollars on adapted cycle propulsion, and there was no publicly available roadmap to use it, and so they're saying. Why are you still asking for this money? We have no place to put it. You know. So tell us where you're going to put A. I, put that question to many explain what you know. It's it's bit difficult because there's a live classification while tennis and so there's only so much. We can say they said L. L. Region his exact quote he said he's here's our. Strategy. We have five key technologies that were investing in that we don't intend to have all come together on a single. To be able to do the mission. In the future, we expect these technologies to be adaptable to existing platforms, and we expect these technologies to come forward into a family. I, know use family assistance a lot but really, and truly that's the next generation dominance. So as a so our intent is to keep these joint technologies moving aggressively and have them come together. They will all mature in accelerate at different paces as they become ready. You'll see US adapting them on existing platforms, sensors, and weapons, and also looking at new platforms sensors. So that was what he said and then I I didn't understand what really what he was getting out. I just didn't he didn't answer my question. So I repeated my question. What is the you know? When are we going to see a roadmap for adaptive cycle propulsion? And he his answer was there has to be a test article to be able to take some of those technologies to mature. That's probably about as far as I can go in quote right so what he was saying they're in retrospect is we have five technologies. We're GONNA put on in Gad. He didn't say but sounds like adaptive cycle propulsion is one of them and You know they need a test article, a flight test demonstrator in other words. To validate the majority of the technologies in-flight. So. That was almost as explicit as the air force has been about that. But really there was a time when. The Department of Defense was even more explicit about the the plans to actually use flight demonstrators for next generation are dominant and it goes back Congressional testimony in twenty sixteen at the time Frank Kendall who was the Under Secretary of defense for Acquisition and technology a acquisition technology in the justice. It has written testimony. included this written test, the House of Representatives. twenty. This was actually in calendar year twenty fourteen and it was going to launch a program in. Fiscal year.

Development Prototypes for have residual operational capabilities. The results successful the development and demonstration explain program will inform future aircraft acquisitions. So that gives you a sort of the background on how these. flight demonstrators came into existence and what their purpose walls. We know from Rocha's comments that the flight demonstrator that he's referring to be called a full-scale flight demonstrator so as a subscale or Even, a large aircraft that is meant to extrapolate the flying qualities of even of an even larger aircraft. So You know but there's still a lot we we don't know about it but that's generally the gist of how we got

He says that I've reached out and my sources are in meetings now. My guess is that the later start will guarantee everybody will least try.

She's also a cognitive scientists in a world expert on choking. So given the events of the week, we wanted to get her take. So it is a double, but I are champ from singles. Here's Dominic team. I didn't have time yet to reflect on on this incredible match on the on the win. The Dhamma. Grizzard champion off it's it's unreal to me still and also yesterday. We rent. Straits to the hotel after all the breast. Had some dinner together and then I didn't sleep on seconds so. Was not able to reflect but I guess that's coming the next day's. Going to say I, guess you pulled an all nighter as we say, how do you celebrate a major during lockdown? This is a new one. How do you celebrate when you can't exactly I would have been happening the? Honestly. We had pizza with my team Del Room, and then we were just jailing talking about. Reviews for weeks about the tournament and I think that I, wouldn't have done differently when. Everything was normal because I was shattered dean was as well, and the is coming in the our with a big hole. They wait till you get home. What affect. Do you think it had on?

Through tough situations, carry us. Through when you feel leads and all these falls away. Of course, the teams April the Eugen for, but it's only three people so. Is was really tough to all the TIME INDIANA CI yourself. push yourself all the time. It's a unique situation and over even thought for the stadium full. In the moment, are you aware of of just how crazy crazy match the Zeus of are you aware of all these wild swings? I am yeah. Usually. I. I really remember. Most of the details in in every mansions. I four said sorted were kind of strange but then if said. I never experienced something before it was so weird such a big drama you will were ending up in the daybreak. With all the years we know shallow with the fringe share the Chinese broad a super long. Two Grand Slam finals, and then we badly all if said daybreak, it's just so crazy and. I guess to lock your. Normal to pressure before big matches. Did you know how intense the pressure was before you got out there? Did you know before you hit the first ball who you were really nervous? Noam usually are most times i. I find. The perfect mix between two nervous and the northern Norway, which is this area yesterday I just didn't find it I feeling really good at the warm up by. was hitting the ball very clean, very goods. Didn't have any pain was fooling fit and then I go out and suddenly I feel. So nervous arms are heavy lakes or heavy, I cannot really blame I. Real Dennis and the dental tough, and then all of this auden. Even I think was only off among soon to sits down. What are you telling yourself after that? I was telling myself. I was hoping that I free up at one point in then I was getting myself well is a major final. Fight for every point doesn't been get way worse than debts and. just hoping that also your opponent gives you something because he was playing very, very limited getting serving. Amazing playing solid from the bank and. then. Maybe he gave me a little bit. Maybe one full or some easy mistakes on the base on broken bank in his third and. Will moment where three.

"I'M ALMOST THERE CAN BE A. A third I've just called the name of mine wrong. What was it called ready What's his real name? I'm on my second bid David. Leads you've just opened third Tonia. Catherine. It's an Aq-. It's an Eq-. Right okay. So. Yeah. I'm drinking San Miguel apparently others call semi Guel. Not to worry about three of them. We've just watched the men's singles final. It is the sort of final that makes me feel like I've had about five days. Even if I haven't because it's. A meandering delirious. I don't really know how to sum it up. It was just but. Yeah I'm slightly worried that the match is just a big blur in my mind and I'm going to struggle to talk about what actually happened. I can remember very strongly the feeling of it happening and how I felt watching it. I think that will be etched into my mind forever because it was one of those matches by the end I was just so an egg tense for both players A. But trying to rationalize what happened might be quite a difficult task I think. Is a bit light last year's final when ref on the Dow lead two sets to love and a break. And that looked over and then suddenly it was in a fifth set is it bit lineup? No. I didn't think. It was follow quality I would say. I thought I thought. was really good like the whole time. This one was patchy. But the idea of it being not that interesting because looking like going to be a straight sets win. And then suddenly you don't want the match to end and you wanted to go on forever in that sense, it was similar. But I don't think quality-wise or. Sort of the reasons for why ended up being such a dramatic match were that similar tall I also think that Medvedev's comeback last year was completely unexpected I think again somebody like. Nidal or not somebody like against Nidal, if love down in your first Grand Slam final. Very few people are predicting away back I think even at sets breakdown today. People will. I think most people watching. Were waiting dominate team to wake up and. Waiting for something that felt like, surely, it has to happen surely at some stage today even if it's only. A small research and see and I am a break back pushing the set to a tiebreak. Winning a set. People were waiting to see the real. Dominic team. It felt. It felt like only a matter of time whether he could get it together. In time. Before it was either. But for me, that was quite crucial difference in how this one felt. Lost felt I will remember this match I think in the long run for the final set and for the final set tiebreak but. You can't have that without the other stuff that comes before just two guys. So, let's talk about that talk about the start of the match. And how we it was. It was weird. It was I mean festival Amazon deserve. Totally, different men to the guy who came out against public arena buster looked. Just, totally paralyzed with nerves and unable to play his normal game. He looked free now there for those first two sets, he looked languid he has. He has a languid power. Unlike, anybody else I think when you he said of generates speed of shot whether it's the serve of one hundred and seventy seven miles now or four hundred. That's kind of hit the back fence without you realizing he's actually hit it that hard. I don't think anybody else gives me that. kind of feeling out on the circuit of the moment you can. I can feel the power of everybody else is almost a slight of hand the way he does it, but he was timing the ball way way better and also the intent was there and he was coming into the net I mean the statistics on his net approaches. I think after a sense set in half to gone to the net twenty times. And with some success, he looks uncomfortable at the net, but he was just playing. The odd. So masters using his six foot six inches his wingspan. Great. Get into the net. And Dominic team was absolutely awful.

"So. Niamey's soccer took place in the final and that point. ENACT COVERAGE ON BBC radio we switched from our digital station sports, extra five, which is the network station and. We went big on Serena. Williams against Victoria as a Aranka. Which I have to say I started to think well, it can't possibly live up to what we've just seen in you just Kant. And the first point of the match. Serena. Williams on leashes a four hundred. The almost didn't. It couldn't be tracked by the the camera because it went so fast and it just went out but it felt like such a statement immediately, the I am going to just destroy every tennis bullet comes near me. And I felt like that my of slight rattled as a Aranka just the the shift force integration that was that was hit with. An immediately to breaks of serve to. Serena. Four games to love she led. Won The set six one. and. I don't know about you. But my name was it feels like we've just got an a time machine and back ten twelve years to when Williams was in twenty. It's the way she was running the movement. She was all she was moving right now soccer she's nearly thirty nine and she's hitting the living daylights out of the ball an and it really wobbled as Anka who started just Tara what did you think? Katherine Oh. Yeah it was blistering utterly blistering and I think it was a a mock of the respect that Serena Williams has. Victoria as rancor because her starts Serena have been Radi. Ready. Sluggish. And she's played some really good plays and she says improper tests but I think she needs she simply could not get away with that today. I think a mindset shifted completely. Am I don't know how I don't I genuinely don't know how you can just sort of decide i. I can't get away with doing that today. So I won't. Thing why you why couldn't you trick yourself over into thinking that every day but overseas? Just doesn't psychology doesn't work like that but. She. Yeah. She couldn't afford to give Victoria as. That lead and take her time to work her way into the match as she has been doing. and so she went to completely the other end of the spectrum and made. Pretty much as blistering start tennis match as I have seen as I've seen Serena making in recent memory, it was. It made my eyes Bogle out of my head. At moments. Really did it was like she? Convinced herself that Seraing was Sharapova. I mean how many times we've seen Serena come out with that intensity and that that or against Charipova and just make mincemeat of her certainly within the first set, and that's what she did to as their income in the first set she was. Unbelievably good as you said, crunching the ball moving fantastically and not allowing as incur any chance to set or what. So ever because she was serving well. So kind of dominating the points on her serve and then she was returning as in cassette could serve so strongly and. This was the Serena that I've kept expecting to see this tournament but i. I was beginning to doubt whether she had that level of tennis in her to be honest because I thought I thought we might see Sloan. Stevens I, thought we might see it against Zachary thought we might see against Perron Covi-, kept expecting. To raise her level in this tournament and. She was saving it for today it seemed and as you said I, don't know how you can turn that tap on and off and have control. Today I just. Will be extra. Mom is lengthy. It was like the very revealing candid. Enlightening. pre-match interview with Victoria as Aranka. where she was asked about her poor record against Serena in grand, slams, what do you need to do to get the win tonight? Play better. or or I? will she treated about for match interview with the contempt? It deserves it was. It was great.

Intention, Action and Result

Intention, Action and Result

"So it's pretty easy to think about our goal setting processes are planning processes. In terms of what we want. As a result and. We can back our way into what kinds of actions could we take or what kinds of kind of. Proof. Would we need to have that that result has been met? And once again, this is kind of the basis of the okay are planning process. But that's not all there is to this discussion. How do we evaluate our actions? When we are actually living out that future and we were trying to plan for. So meticulously, how can we evaluate in an ongoing basis? The actions that we're taking, we can break these down. Okay. Break our actions down because our actions are not as simple as just doing something. There's three parts that I wanNA talk about of course, this is just one model of thinking about action. The these three parts of reasonable. The first is the actual activity. This is the whatever the physical thing is that you're doing. the. The movements, they her making right the the real thing that you're doing in the world. That's the action. But before that is the intention. What is the intention of that action? And this is much more complicated than it might seem. Because you may have a stated intention. Or you may have an unstated intention. Or you might have some kind of chained intentions. you can ask yourself why is it that I am getting up? So early in the morning against my you know better hopes for comfort and laying in bed longer why am I waking up early and putting my tennis shoes on and going out for a run? Why would I subject myself to that kind of pain? Well. I because I want to be healthy. Right, that's that's what I wanted to do. Why do I want to be healthy because being healthy provides me with Potentially, a a higher quality life in other areas maybe you know more longevity more healthy years where I'm not dealing with any disease and so running is going to hopefully provide me with those things. But it's possible that you start. With your stated intention of. I want to run this morning to meet my goal of running every day. And these are two different concepts. One is an intention that is directly met by some measurable thing in the other one is an intention that is. A more abstract idea. If you meet your. You know weekly goal or whatever it is of running what happens then? Well it contributes to your health, right it contributes to better health, and so you can think about all of these things in terms of layers of abstraction on on your intentions. And the thing that a lot of people miss about this is that actions do not always follow. Perfectly. Your. Best intentions. Conventional Wisdom tells us that our best laid plans often go out the window at the first sign of anything that goes wrong. and. So if our plans our intentions are. not necessarily going to be followed by action than the intentions end up being. Essentially irrelevant. But even if we do take action based on our intentions. They can still become irrelevant because there's a third part and that's what comes after the action. Our intention may be clear and our action may be clear. We may believe that are particular action is going to carry us towards our intention. But then For one reason or another, it doesn't. The result is the third part. Seems really obvious the action. is in the middle sandwiched in the middle of the intention and the result. So it's possible that Gore intention is to become healthier and so you run every morning and unfortunately the unexpected results. Is that because you ran, you know too much or maybe you ran too often early. You, took on more. Stress Than your body could hindle, you injure yourself and thus you'll meet your goal rain It's kind of going the opposite direction in fact of what your intention was a here's the really important lesson I want you to take away from this episode. We, need to recognize. That what we care about the most. Is the through line. Of these three things. We care more about the intention being followed all the way through. To the result. Whatever the action is in the middle. Is only relevant. If, it carries us from intention to result. Of course, this is a model of thinking. There are certain types of actions that have multiple benefits beyond just trying to mechanistically achieve a particular. Right. There are certainly extraneous reasons why you might choose one action over another this model. Is Not, necessarily about and of that meditative process of just allowing yourself to. Be In that moment of the action and instead being focused on the through line of your intention to the result. But it still provides a framework for thinking around what actions might be valuable if my goal. If my goal is alternately the intention I have set out to accomplish,

Tennis: Novak Djokovic sensationally kicked out of US Open for hitting linesperson

"Is going to go down as probably I think he already is one of the best players to ever play the game. He's the number one player in the world. He was the overwhelming favorite to win the US Open. When it's all said and done, Novak Djokovic could have more majors than Roger Federer. You know, it's very possible, so he's a great player. But he's been known to have a temper on the court from time to time. Is he John McEnroe? No, of course not. But there was an incident A few months ago, We threw his racket and it almost hit a line stretch. Well, I want to play you a little bit of audio. Keep in mind. This is at the US Open from two days ago where Novak Djokovic was just broken Serve what It means is he just lost his game he was serving. It's not something you want to have happen to you when you're the number one player in the world, So he just this was literally seconds after he just misses a shot. He loses the point and he picks up a tennis ball, and he hits it. At a fairly good rate of speed, not trying to hurt anybody, but we'll get to that. But here's the live audio when it took place the side rail if it had a little if he had had a little higher would have gone right into the camera person. This one. He hits back and it's right towards the line person. And if it's all right, believe it hit her in the throat. Yeah, he's right. It did. So everybody was kind of shocked, right? It wasn't one of those situations where Oh, no. Look what happened. Everyone was trying to figure out what the hell just happened. Well, it turns out As the commentator just said that Novak Djokovic out of anger hit a tennis ball to the side rail. That's at least that's what he was trying to Dio. Instead, he connects head on. With a young female lineswoman. Right in the throat, So I don't know if she was young. She was 18 She maybe forties fifties sixties. I don't know. She falls to the ground holding her throat. It was a scary moment, but you know, you get hit in the throat. You never know what's going to happen anyway. It was really bad moments later. Termine officials get together and I knew what was going to happen because I know the rules of tennis. They disqualified him in the first set in the fourth round, the number one player in the world in a major the U. S Open now. Let me give you my opinions on this. First of all. When you decide to take out your anger, whether it's on your racket or tennis ball. You better while Dan make sure you don't hit anybody. Why? Well, first of all, I don't want to hurt anybody, and I don't think Djokovic was trying to hurt anybody. Clearly, this was unintentional. But it is your responsibility to know where you're hitting a tennis ball to know where you're throwing your racket and Novak Djokovic has been playing with fire for years. He's had incidents like this before where it was very close to hitting aligns person. There's a rule in tennis, and that rule is very simple. It doesn't matter whether it's intentional or not, if you make any sort of contact, and it's not in the middle of the point, for example, if you hit a shot in the middle of a point, and it hits the lines person, you're obviously not going to get penalized because you know that's a completely different. But if you throw a racket Or if you hit a tennis ball in anywhere, and it strikes anybody. You are immediately disqualified. This has happened before. That's exactly right. Thank you, Mr Mcclosky. It's happened several years ago with another player who's still in the open right now, if I recall It's a very simple rule. Don't do it, and if you're going to take your anger out on your racket or tennis ball, make sure you don't hit anybody. It's very simple. It's clearly in the rules, but I have a

"Caught off guard by in a press conference you know they're expecting questions about forehands and backhands matches, and that kind of thing, and you do see it sometimes when they get asked a question on a topic, not expecting that they can kind of just freeze and shut down a little bit and I'm sure I'm sure he probably did know who gives Gibson walls but he didn't feel able to talk about it, and that is I think an illustration of the fact that has as you've been saying. historisches hasn't been told enough so that it's kind of right there in the forefront of their mind in a way that it should be. So he was Alpha Gibson You've done some some extraordinary research that that we've all read. I've watched. A film American mostow theory of the last couple of days David been listening to some other rival podcast, which we will accept in the name of research. But Black Mark Against Your name David. who was healthy Gibson most she was she was born in South Carolina in one, thousand, nine, hundred, twenty, seven. But she she later moved to New York with her family during the Great Depression. To I think the family was sort of. Seeking economic benefits moving to to New York and sheep she. McCain. A product of the the streets of Harlem. She was in her own words a street kids she she dropped out of schools yet. She ended up completing high school I think in her early twenties she started high school, the age of eighteen 'cause she kind of just skipped it. Throughout her teenage years and she started playing paddle tennis on the streets of Harlem. That's how she she got into tennis. She was not very sporty played played all sorts of different sports. Thinks. She had a a tough and complicated relationship with her father. He opened the east to tell her. I learned from the the film that. He wanted to son and he had wished that she were boy and he was just GonNa treat you as a boy given that she wasn't one. And East, two stories of him taking up to the roof of their apartment and. Boxing with a genuine knee fist vising with her to try and as he put, it toughened her up. And it's funny. There are a lot of, as you hear people start to talk about out there is we will do what we're hearing Moose of significant people they like into her to a to a boxer. And those sort of street fighting qualities coming out. Coming out. In tennis. Yeah and that's something that she was well aware of but it's I suppose that's not that wasn't an uncommon story for people if the agent at that time, but it's a pretty extraordinary to come from a family of sharecroppers in in South Carolina job considered just just one step away from slavery really to, and there's there's a whole lot of story in between will come on bit to come from that sipping professional tennis player. Just alone is pretty extraordinary and I think it's important to mention here that the USDA at the time was the US l.. Ta and it was A. It was an all white organization. Black people were not allowed to play in US LTA tournaments and A. A rival Tennis Association the American Tennis Association the ATA was formed in Nineteen sixteen with the mission really of promoting tennis among black people and the once she picked up the game was playing on that tool and Dominating I think she ended up winning the national eighty-eight titled Ten. Times. But, it was wall she was playing on that that she was. that. She was spotted by Huber Eaten and Robert. Johnson Dr Johnson as as he's known and they realized that they were watching the Gibson who was a woman of. Great scale and they believe someone that could kind of transform the sport that I love, which was tennis and. Then, mission was to kind of find a young black player who was able to integrate the white world of tennis and they knew that it had to be a good player because they knew that that was the only sort of plan that would be accepted in that world they had to prove themselves. With a talent and with their skill and they chose. Gibson they they realized potential and keep some went to live with Eaton? And his wife during school year practicing on his core attending high school and then, and then Gibson with spend the summer traveling around this eighty-eight tennis circuit with Dr Johnson and. Steadily, Gibson's game improve and she reached the point nine, hundred fifty where she was really good enough to be playing on the main US Outta or rather than just the ATA tool. But there was there was still a barrier that had to be broken down. As, funny. One of the things that struck me about that, her involvement with the a which of course was for exclusively black tennis players was that she was an outlier even within the black tennis world because An and. This is something that I got from the. Documentary. The E, there was a certain class snobbery in the it was for the black bourgeoisie was for the Black Intelligencia and she was none of those things. So not only was she and obsolete I. Just by virtue of being a black person, she was also an outlier within the the. Should have been her her quarter of the sport. It wasn't she was. She was an outside on on every front and I dating it's possible not to. Understate. The significance of Dr Johnson in her development because he's somebody that that comes up repeatedly in her story he was also. Important to author Ashen and Leslie Allen who will will will hear from an yeah. He was overseeing an extremely significant person but as you say Matt. Until nineteen fifty, there was this huge obstacle a huge wool in the way of her. Properly, becoming a will not even a professional tennis play just competing in tennis at the highest level and it took a white woman. To change that it took alice marble, who was she the world number one at the time. I think she was the American number one I'm not sure world number one was a thing. That she was the top ranked American tennis player. She had status in cachet within the sport. Richard Evans the. The tennis journeys we'll be hearing from a bit later. Told me a story which sounds like. It will need its whole own podcast by alice marble being some sort of spy jury, second? World. War. Possible tennis relived episode on that in the future. But Alice Marble wrote a letter in American tennis American Lawn Tennis magazine. That said a portion of it said if tennis is a game for Ladies and gentlemen, it's time we acted a little more gentle people and less like sanctimonious hypocrites. If Alpha Gibson represents a challenge to the present Corp of women players, it's only fair that they should meet that challenge and one month. Later out the Gibson was admitted to the US National Tennis Championships Forest Hills, what the tournament that would later become the US Open when tennis became professional. And she became the first ever black player to compete and she went on to compete at Wimbledon. The next year. What strikes me through all of that storytelling and reading upon it is is that Combination of the activism of Alice marble the intervention. that. She. Does she has there in order to to force hands, but also the need for this this diplomacy from from out the Gibson and from Mr Johnson and the people that are trying to prepare and enable her to to infiltrate this. This sport that just doesn't allow black people to play it and. If they only were getting full on head-on and trying to break the wolves down with with. Fury in activism, it wasn't going to work. It has to be married with with the diplomacy in order to be accepted at the same time, and that's one of the most fascinating elements to me of both out there Gibson Anna thrashes story that there wasn't a single way in order to achieve the goal that eventually had in order to break into the sport and and to be accepted and Tim, and this was a moment showing. Does that quote isn't there that Dr Johnson was preparing for a world that didn't want us And I and I think there's something that we can. We can all learn from Alice Mobile's intervention that. Black people shouldn't have to dismantle the problem that they didn't create. And I think white people can and must help and marble is a is is an example of that and together they were stronger.

"Back by popular demand brackets by David Law ov- tennis relived. We told you. It would be coming back. Of course, it was coming back. Don't worry. We know that actual live tennis is happening this tennis lived and. Second. One prior to the US Open is not in place of talking about live tennis. And related things it is an addition and a very special and necessary edition as well. This one will be focusing on the life, the career, the legacy of Alpha Gibson, and our next one will be focusing on the very same of thrash respectively the first african-american women and men to win Grand Slam titles in NFL Gibson's case the first African. American. Person To, be, admitted, to play. Professional tennis an extraordinary women in extraordinarily. Important figure in tennis history and one that. Hasn't been sufficiently remembered or given her Jews always over the is so. We're hoping to write that in a very tiny tiny way today certainly been. An extraordinary learning experience for us to to get to know these t plays an the significance in tennis history say thank you David for your enthusiasm. For tennis relived. Point Yeah it's very different what we're doing today and what we're doing with the Arthur Ashe podcast as well. When we were doing the Roland Garros relived Wimbledon the Olympics, they were all about events or matches or moments in time specific moments in time when we came up to realizing that the US Open for stop was going to happen and we really don't have two weeks worth of shows to fill much as I'd love to come up with twenty wonderful matches and memories which no doubt we will get to in the. List of Twelve Pete Sampras much is that he submitted for the short lift. US Open relived and fifteen Jimmy Connors matches. Including all seven from all from. Sorry. All five from nine hundred, ninety one. But When we came to to look at this and we started to try to think well, what what should we do I personally suddenly realize the the gaping chasm mind knowledge in my reading of the Games history and I think particularly Alpha Gibson I feel ashamed not to know what I now know and what we want to do with this show. Is Tell, the stories that we've discovered and to properly tell the history as best as we can. I. Think we all knew that line first black woman to play the US Open and win Grand Slam titles but I'd never properly engaged with that line or really understood what that actually. Meant or considered what she actually had to overcome to become that because tennis was this elitist sport at a racially segregated time in America. So it's an extraordinary thing that tennis was used as AVIK BY A. Gibson and now thrash. To advance the black race and I'd never really. Never really thought about that before how how, what, a, what a strength of character and what a special talent it took to be able to achieve as a black person in in that white world and it's just been. Just been happening really to have read and sort of spent time. In their lives over the last few over the last few days and weeks doing this research and and it felt very necessary and timely as well. Absolutely it is timely. It feels like the right. Right moment to be doing this I mean there's never it's never been a wrong moment to do it and we. Probably, should have done it sooner but this is a very important moment. In the civil rights movement in the black lives matter movement and two. Quite Billie Jean King via Mary Carillo you have to know your history or your destined to repeat it. So this is an attempt by us to get to know. The sports, really integral part of the sports history and yet just to. Reemphasize what David was saying. They're shame shame. Not previously having enough of an appreciation of the Gibson in her significance my second USA. Even as a fan was in two thousand seven. Previously been in two thousand and four times with my dad's just little jolie to new. York. And the opening ceremony that year. On it out the Gibson because it was the fiftieth anniversary of her first title at the US Open. She went back to back titles fifty seven and fifty eight and aretha Franklin song at that opening ceremony she she sung respect. And of course, I knew ether frankly. Very very excited to to see her and to sing along to respect and try and get my face on the jumbotron. But I had no idea twenty year old me twenty, one year old me I didn't know about the IT Gibson was and Ko is only twenty one but I had been a tennis fan for a long time and I'm not sure I ever heard her name before or if I had. Not registered it and not thought to myself you should. You should find out who that person is and what the significance is. Say I respectively very ashamed about that, but I did enjoy a Retha. And you weren't alone not knowing who out there Gibson was do we want to bring up the federal quote not to throw him under the bus but what we ourselves under the bus I? Federal join us the IT's representative of the wider. Misunderstanding or lack of knowledge of the tennis world of of certainly my generation and and yours and Roger Federer's parts of those straddles. The fact that he did not really know who she was when he was asked about a legacy. He said she was before my time. What's the exact quote? I, think you said you're putting me on the spot. I don't know who that is. I think is the quote because it was before my time and look he.

"Rule that never JOVIC had preemptively opposed, which was a restriction of one entourage member per player. They've said thought they will a reserve one extra room per plant, but they will. need the play will be paid for. In terms of accommodation and expenses, but they will have the right to one additional room which will be? The financial responsibility of the player, but the the kind of unwritten small is. You can bring extra people. If you want to prevent you from doing, we just don't. We just laying on. The facilities to to make that easily actually made the decision yet about whether they can bring more than one person on the site. There's still working that out. They've clearly they've had some. is his personal chef is waiting by the phone to here? Yeah I mean look. Even. Lopez was asked about this on this media coal. He's he again. He was trying to be very very respectful to to plas- Light Novak and many others, and he said look. If players don't want to come, I've really respect that I understand that I said for me the the entourage issue. It is a sacrifice, but it is a small. Small sacrifice in my opinion, but it's up to them if they don't want to do it I understand it, but we've. We can't not have the tournament because of that and and What I, what I sensed, was he? He also said. We've also got to understand that. The still two months to go yet and they. The USDA have made us feel that. Things may well be better by then, and they may be able to. Do More for them by that time. I suppose it's also possible that it could go. The other way and things could get worse in the next two months. We don't. We don't really know well I I mean look the thing main well, not happen yet. Yeah, I think we all need to bear that in mind. These off plans and they have said that the event is going ahead. The governor has said it can go ahead, but that's under current conditions. Who knows whether a second wave might have happened by then that just Indian well style. MAKES SOMEBODY GO! No, that's not happening and I certainly think that that's even more of a a thing to bear in mind with the. Later dates on the provisional. Spin announced because in in in Katherine speaks beyond scientific and medical brief news that there is no. Definitive data on on covid and the way it's impacted by temperature traditionally viruses all. Less contagious in in warm weather, so it's likely that the current trends that we're saying. Nathan show is likely the current trends were saying all impacted by. The weather in the Northern Hemisphere, and as things do start to get. Get Cooler into the autumn, which is when. Is is pretty deep into the ultimate. She really that the the French Open is scheduled to happen. Could become effective, but Yeah, we should probably deviate before I speak even more beyond my scientific brief, but it's obsolete, worth worth bearing in mind before we. Before, we get too carried away now. Key getting ready carried away of. Well we'RE GONNA. Say before we book flights well. Nobody influenced because the media or not allowed in They have said that some broadcast partners will be allowed to go i. don't exactly know what that means, but the media were told on this goal. They won't be a credentialed for the tournaments side. which is no great surprise? CUSIP new to them yeah. And Lake. It's there has been I mean preemptively. There was a lot of dissent from from players particularly on the ATP, so. I had a few a few days. Straight Voices Tayside a lot of ATP. Players have been. Quite outspoken about the feelings about the US Open going ahead and subsequent to the announcement that his. Yeah nothing is changed this today. sort of a few hours day also off to the announcement. That was. Opposed by CAB Dubrovsky. VICI player. M mostly in doubles. Very Con- considered. Post. Headline my personal thoughts on the US Open meeting forward which I mean, the there are plenty of players who have said. Plenty of things and made plenty of arguments about. Why they're opposed to it happening, but I think her. Her Post probably up. All covers most of them. Certainly extremely eloquent eloquent express while summarize the the point that she's made. To give you a view of. If what and why? The the players are are opposing this decision. She says with respect while I'm appreciative that the US Open put forth big efforts to operate I have many concerns. Here is my perspective and. It's bullet pointed. She says when the US Open presented. That planet felt like being sold on an idea telling us that testing is over ninety percent accurate. We know it's around seventy percent. Will I mean that's. I. Mean we hear Roussel's things about testing anyway, but that's. What she says she says that gives the impression that health and safety players are not the priority. In reality, most decisions at already been made they play feedback rose wasn't really taken into consideration. She said it's impossible to control and enforce a bubble situation. Where plays any move in the hotel to the venue and back? And we don't know who the he plays. We'll come into contact within these that don't obey per everyone else in the tournament. At risk, she says at least half of players and not comfortable traveling to the US. I. Don't, she doesn't give any. Sort of specific evidence that presumed she in contact with other players but I you know I. Don't know how how. Dot claim can be backed up, but anyway that's what she says. She says at least half. Looks plays disappointed with no qualifying. They mixed and half doubles draw, not having qualifying into smaller doubles during creases, the lack of parity in tennis don't want to disappoint. Disproportionately moves the needle further creating a big gap between those at the top, and those in need, the income, an opportunity for growth. She says the beauty of Islam is the story of the qualify. He battled three tough matches to earn a spot in the main during the upset. This story will not. They see this is US Open's at the beach of slam is mental fortitude and the skillet takes in six doubles matches. The beach of Islam is having the opportunity to play. Mixed doubles a unique aspect of tennis. There's IT concerned with the exhaustive nasal testing. She says it would not be occasional, but multiple times a week is an uncomfortable test that hasn't proven accurate and to be subject to it. That often is a source of anxiety for players. And she says the consequences of testing positive onsite means an immediate withdrawal. No matter what round you're in and staying in a hotel room until you test negative even without symptoms, this could menial isolated for weeks on end unable to play further events. Or even go home. She says I wish. We could use this high eighties to explore new designs of how where we played tennis like some real out of the books thinking..

Let's chase of the news because we've actually got. Live actual tennis news to to hit you with. Today today well, actually, it was more yesterday, wasn't it? Because the US Open and I mean it's been a not brilliantly kept secret right it was. It was leaked to the New York Times. It's been it's been all but confirmed for for a few days right? Yeah, it was clearly coming. Decision had been made an frankly even if you go back to late last week, and the all the plans being talked about by the New York Times and John Wertheim has been writing the story as well for sports illustrated, and then we did. We did a conference call. Would Feliciano Lopez with a? Dozen of the British journalist, because this is of course, fever tree championships week should have been the Queen's Club where Lopez won both singles and doubles titles last year, so he was talking to them a little bit about that, but he also really gave chapter and verse about the player meeting they had last week the. Zoom call now we're all we've all suddenly discovered. What zoom is over the last three months? This video conferencing ten. Days David Law I've done a lot of. but on this particular eighty, a planned meeting one they had four hundred players on, and this was the USDA and the the tools tending the players what the plan was to try to make the US Open plant. This is on the ATP side I leave. It turns out none of Novak. Djokovic handed out Roger Federer were on this call, but anyway the had four hundred people on it. And Lopez gave us chapter and verse on on this This media conference about what was said, and the lengths that they were going to to, and also that he was assured he was absolutely sure that it was going to go ahead. The US Open is going to happen. He said he also said it should happen. In my view, it's time the tennis to get rolling because. Bear in mind. He's not just tennis player these days He's a tournament director. He is going to be. Fronting one of the events that will take place in the remaining months of the tennis calendar. That's Madrid. He's the tournament director there, but he had a pretty stark message for the players in that call that we are going to have to accept less prize money. We're going to have to get used to that. We're GONNA have to basically stop being so precious what he was saying and understand be realistic about. The year we're in the climate. We're in the situation we're in and. If we want a going concern of a sport to play for for the future, we need to do something about it because otherwise. The whole system is under threat. The ATP the WTI The slams. Even and that's that's what this is all about primarily for the United States Tennis Association, they do not have. Pandemic Insurance to cover them the way that Wimbledon Do, and they also have according to The New York Times, seventy million dollars at stake from ESPN alone with the staging of the tournament, so it didn't go ahead. They would not be getting that seventeen million so. As you say we then came into this week. And yesterday we were told by under Karma the governor of New York that the event was going to go ahead. He was gonNA. Pass it. He was comfortable that it was safe and he's basically said sports are back in business in New York, which has done a fantastic job by all accounts of. Suppressing the virus in recent weeks to get to this point, it seemed frankly absurd. Maybe six weeks ago that this could have been the case I think we all pretty much written off the US Open as a possibility and anyway yesterday. He said it's coming and I think. that. The United States Tennis Association on HOP TO BE HONEST. Than, they were expecting him to reveal that news yesterday, so they quickly rushed out a statement saying yes, the event is going to go ahead. We're delighted about it. We'll have a proper announcements in presentation tomorrow that happened today on a on a live call, which also featured Serena Williams coming on with video of her own to say she was going to be there so a big old deal, which was a surprise winner..

Well I think this this whole crisis has just shown how tied up ten is's with the real world really whether it be social issues or climate issues or political issues while this is a massive health issue which is impacting tennis. And we're GONNA look at it through tennis perspective and it's so intertwined because you know I think it's a I think it's something going forward. Where when tennis does come back we will. We won't ever take it for granted. You know we will always keep it in mind with everything that's going on in the real world as tennis players have to in this in this situation And the other thing that struck me hearing matic sands talking and Dan Evans about how they just wanted to get home. We should section unusual feeling for a tennis player. I think as much as anything so used to being on the road. It happens all the time that they spend so little time at home. Tennis says in indeed they you know they have a whole team of people around them doing things for them to get to the top of the sport. You have to be quite selfishly with your time. Your effort Your focus on that team a bill to get them in the best shape possible. Get them to the top on the road fifty two weeks a year pretty much but now tennis plaza realizing that then not the center of attention in their families and they just WanNa get back home they just WanNa how when they can and that must be very confusing and different experience for the tennis as I touched on it with with both of them about the mental health elements of it. And I think it's the same for everybody who is forced to to isolate. Who's forced to stop what they're doing to what from. I am I from home for many years. But it's not everybody who who finds that easy and and look with very much the lucky ones in in so many respects we we understand the struggles that many people are going to have the next few months and if if you're one of them really my thoughts are with you. We want to provide a bit of entertainment as well as as well as information about tennis and conversations as we can. We're not GONNA stop. We're going to carry on. That's that's what we're doing right now. And that's what we intend to continue doing But in terms of the wider future as Dan said later on to me. There's just so much unknown right now. Nobody knows what's going to happen next. I really do feel for for the authorities involved in all sports. Right now Evans said he felt that the the had handled things well in communicating to the players. What was going on as best they could with such a changing scene. But we're next because we know we've got no international tennis until the end of April. The very earliest may the second on on the women's side it means such a lot for the business for all those tournaments for the tolls for all the TV deals for. Everybody works in the Sports. Who who frankly relies on it for their income. And Yeah I feel for all these people that are posting information. I saw one of our colleagues. In the photography World Ella Ling was was was decided to open up her entire library to try to sell images. Now she's got an incredible library of of images from fifteen years covering the sport but this is suddenly what she is faced with because she can no longer travel the world and supply imagery to two magazines and publications and websites. That might want to buy them. So everybody's got to try to find another way of going about an living or at least bridging the gap until they can get back out there again but for the players this is. They don't have an offseason normally. That's very long and suddenly they could be faced with with how long it could. It could be months. It's it's GonNa be a very interesting process for them to to actually become tennis plas- again I would imagine whenever it happens. Yes it's the proper and his off season we've all been cooling for I e you wish the is that. Is that the message the learning to be done here? Who is GONNA learn the hard way? Football is one of the mid season. Break Yeah Yeah I mean. It's really difficult isn't it? Because the moment we have this kind of We have this known six week periods definitive six week period of night night tennis. We're all kind of reluctant to really talk about it. Defensively in those terms because we all fear and possibly even suspect that it will end up being being longer than that but let's just for a moment thought experiment wise say it is a a six week break and come the stars of May Madrid week tennis happening again. Whether it's behind closed doors or not. Let's say that the the facts we have the as we have them at the moment bear out and the Tennessee's in carries on started me and they've had this six week break. It makes things very interesting extremely interesting in terms of who comes out of the blocks and who I mean we may. We may get the most when they eventually do start playing again. We may get the most incredible level of play. Yeah if everybody's suddenly fully fence and fresh Nichols have gone and opportunity to potentially work on the game in these six weeks which they don't really get over the off season It will help players. Who are currently you know they small group of players? Who are currently Ingrid? This is gonNA. This has gone to benefit if the more time to get back just thinking out loud.

"How strong do you need to be to play tennis to play tennis or just to start tennis? Not that strong. Like my grandmother could go out and play tennis. Right. The entry level requirements for tennis as far as strengths and said a pretty low. But what about if you want to be a really good tennis player? Oh well for any player to get the most out in themselves. The actually need to have a really good basis strength. Yeah. That's the thing that we really wanted to focus on today. We've done some podcasts in, in recent times related to strength and conditioning. I think that for tennis strength is actually a very complex thing and often, we use strength as a blanket term, but we could probably split that up into several subcategories. That's right. A lot of the times when we talk about strength really talking about different aspects of human ladder system. We have the strength aspect stability, aspects explosiveness, and these things really more distinct in themselves than they all fall under the same umbrella term or even the same training for that matter. Yeah, absolutely. And I know that, that one of the things that start when we started out this conversation on strength. One of the things that we were asking will wear as this information available for tennis players. Yeah. I really started this. We started talking about this before we decided to record about it, just actually for own games..

"So if you magin that you go in and to the gym, and you do a one rep max dead lift, and you know, what that number is. Let's say it's four hundred pounds will how many can you do Jacob in a row. What you mean me? No, I'm saying like, let's say that you're one rip max deadlocked is four hundred pounds. How many in a row? Can you do man? I totally fell for that one. You can do one Glenn. Okay. Exactly. You can do. So. So what happens then if I drop the white to three hundred pounds. How many do now I forgot my chart, but you can do more than one. That's for sure. A lot more a lot more than one. Right. And so that's maybe another way to think about this. So if three hundred pounds is all I can do one time, and I go in and trying to three hundred pounds. Well, then I'll money gonna get one of them done. But if if my friend can do four hundred pounds is one wreck max, he's going to do a lot more on me at three hundred pounds and the same thing the tennis court like if I'm going to hit a backhand. And I am every swing just pushing my maximum I'm close to the power output in my swing close to all. I can handle that I'm going to get ta. Tired of hitting back at backhands very very quickly. Whereas if I have strengthened myself so that I can hit a very powerful back end and still be comfortably below my threshold. Hit a lot more balls before. I started get tired. Yeah. That's right. So most of us judge ourself based on like most of us. We we we make. I'm not sure what the right term is here. But our procedures are perceived ability of our own playing level is based on the best things that we can do. It's not based on. I watched ten matches of myself and took data on it. And then drew what the averages were. And that's how I make my perceived ability. Right. So is it bad idea for me to give golf example hereafter? We just went into into the car thing the swift on tiles done dead lifting. I think that go is Gulf is fine. Right. So there's not there's why not. Really good data on this that the PGA has gone where psychologically they figured out that gophers as a rule draw their own self perception, virtually based on the best round that they are capable of playing. Right. So you have a handicap in golf, and when people self rate, and they make their own handicap, they almost exclusively make it the best that they can possibly play. Instead of the thing that they do on average. Shaw. Right. And so that's a really easy concept. I think for us to look at in grasp it's harder to turn inwards. And look at ourselves and realize that's us. That's you. That's me. That's my my one guy on the tour, and my other guy and the other guy and the other guy and everybody else on the tour. Right, right. Like, it's not something that were excluded from you're not the one in a hundred probably an imagine it's much easier. I think in Gulf at least you do get a handicap you get to play lots of rounds and see what your range of scores is. And it should be hopefully to wide of range from one round to the next. But you actually get information on that. Whereas when you look at tennis players every single time you play the conditions of different. And you're also playing different opponents all the time. So you don't really have even as objective measures Gulf does of what your performance is actually like. And so in that case, I think it's even hotter to get an accurate perception of way, you're Bility's at. Yeah. I think that's exactly right. I mean, we don't have. Anything that's really like a candy cap. We do have the UT our system that starting to come into more use. But that's just reminds me now of these junior players that I talked to and their coaches in their parents as they're playing ITF's in trying to transition onto the tour like I can't tell you how many times I've heard like all my my.

"But it's not the top priority for everyone right for some people. That's just not the number one priority. Like if for instance, I think if you're working with Rafa. You know, going to the gym and getting physically stronger shouldn't be your number one priority. That's not going to win him the most matches. Right. He sent me. He's not suffering from strength deficiency. I think I think maybe there these this way to say this would be that. I can't ever think of a professional tennis player on the men's or women's sides that was too strong physically to play. Good tennis. But there certainly have been a lot of players who leave performance on the table by not being strong enough. Yeah. And I think that's exactly right. The issue is that we're leaving performance on the table. So I had a conversation with another one of the guys today. And really specifically we said look like this isn't about you having a problem, or this isn't even about just beating the guy that you lost to last time. This is a. About getting the absolute most out of yourself that you can and just to clarify for the people who are listening. This isn't going to be a podcast. We talk about professional plays for thirty minutes. Or now, this just helps give you some framework to understand that even professional players have strength officials. He's a lot of the time that are impact knit performance. And so one of the things that we're trying to do today is to help you answer that question for yourself is would getting stronger help you mo- matches. And so so maybe if you think this is a good time to do this Jacob we could talk about some of the questions that people could be asking themselves in order to answer that bigger question because I think it's that's not necessarily an easy thing for the average listener to to know the answer to. Yeah. Well, if you're open minded enough to just sit back and go away, and and if you just find that you just asked yourself. F- am I leaving a lot of performance on the table by not being stronger? If you just did that then I think there's a few places that you can start from. So this this has really become an issue for me over the last year because these guys made it really personal for me. I mean, you know, that I'm consulting for a few of the guys on the ATP right now. And so it just really hit home. Like, wow. I mean, I just thought this was something I struggled with when I was twenty five. I didn't think that this was something that to our veterans would still be struggling with when they're playing at you know, a world class level. So the most obvious place to start from me is just a ask yourself. Am I losing matches because I'm getting tired? Shaw because a lot of times people out as much because they getting tired. They get into a third set or professional ranks at the grand SAM's, a fifth set and they start losing foot speed. They start struggling to catch breath between points, they stopped making poor tactical decisions their quality of shot goes down. And these are all ways that getting tired would would make you lose matches. But I think most people hearing that question when say, well, if I'm just getting tired that means need to do more cardia, right? And the, you know, the first issue is that getting tired might not necessarily mean that your cardio is so bad, but it could just as likely be strength issue. Right. Maybe to draw a comparison. We might look at like a small hunt Aqa and those things can get great gas mileage and the dry forever. But if you make one thoat trailer, which straining at its limits the whole time, then you're that thing's gonna fall apart pretty quickly. Right. And the gas mileage goes down horribly and all the things that were beneficial about it aren't good because it's it's not really matched up to the task that set before it. And so, you know, you have to look more deeply in more closely at the style of tennis that you play the way that you're playing in particular in the matches that you're losing if you think you're losing because you're getting tired..

"Glen hill. Jacob mayer. Welcome to another episode of the technical tennis podcast. And today, we're going to talk about retain of says. Yeah. So we. Kind of working our way through a lot of different aspects of preparing to play competitive tennis matches. And we've even talked some about some of the strategy and mentality aside of competing during a match. We've talked a little bit about serving strategy. But we haven't really talked at all yet about return of sieve. And what we think about how we spend at Tom at a practice. Go. I know that we have mentioned this in a previous episode with those of you who didn't catch that. But we have addressed the fact that given the the the fact that every single point that you play in a match is going to start on your end with either assertive or retentive says that should be where you are spending a huge amount of time that you spend on the missing the should be investing a lot of your practice time in practicing the return of. Yes. I mean, you're trying to serve is gonna be depending on who you are either. The return with a servant cell are going to account for the single most the single highest sort of ratio of points in a mash in a mass that's going to be determined by lunch shot as a terrible way to say that. But maybe we could try and tackle that again. You wanna go whenever another shot at that? I don't have a better way to say it. I think maybe we could say like this that depending on your style of play or what your strengths out of the either the return or the return of serve is going to be the single biggest point of differentiation between who wins and loses the match for you would that be a- away. You might think about that. Yeah. I think that's that's pretty good. At least, you know. I'm just trying to get to the this. This very personal fact for me, right? When I was in my first five years of playing tennis. Like, we were practising all the shots or thought is practicing all the shots. And then sometime after playing tennis for five years starting to play tournaments and whatnot. I looked back and realized I've never practiced had a return serve. You know, my coaches just kind of said, well, you just returned kinda like that you stand back there and you hit back in. Then you go play. And were it was the worst part of my game by far and like that single shot cost me twenty percent of all the points played in a match routinely show show. I mean, it's it makes a huge difference. It's interesting when I think back to my own tennis journey and growing up in the top pros that were coming to preeminence in the game at that time and Agassi stood a pot because he was this first guy that I can really remember that focused on China said brought his game in a sense. And he was known for his retain of seven his aggressiveness on the return of serve. I mean, I think there's some people that still would consider him the greatest retainer in the history of this. I'm not sure that I would agree with that anymore. But certainly at the time he was the guy that I can remember that distinctive and known for his return to save and I chose. I was just gonna say to me that shows how much the focus has shifted in the sense because I didn't practice to say when I was young so much. It wasn't really something that coaches really focused on that much. Yeah. It's good to hear that. Because sometimes I just thought like that. I got the short end of the stick there. But the thing that really stands out to me about Andre is that he seemed to be one of those characters in history that marks. A significant change, but like a generational shift or an evolution in the game. Did I think before Andre we sort of thought like, yeah, you know, maybe you can attack the second serve maybe run around at you hit a forehand or or or something like that? But there wasn't anyone that stood out matching and match out where you were afraid to hit second serves to the guy because he was going to try and hurt you off of both sides. You know, now there's a lot of guys in the game like that..

"I'm wearing the clothes that I'm gonna play matching I wouldn't need to pack clothing in my tennis bag, and that's a fair question. But the reality is things go wrong and things always go, according to plan at so what what we want to do we pack for for tennis match is prepare for the reasonable unexpected events that might occur. So I'm not going to pack a snake bite kit in my tennis bag because the odds of me getting bitten by a snake in the middle of tennis match. I'd like to think pretty low that would not be reasonable thing to pack in there. But if we talk about clothing, Australian, well, I was gonna say, maybe he live in Arizona. But. Astray Leah to I guess, so if you think about the types of clothing items that you might pack in your bag a lot of people will pack an extra shut. And if it's sweaty, you know, it's very hot and humid out change shirts. Maybe at the end of the first set, and I think that's a great starting point. But if you think about that situation, I would say if you're looking at bashes resets matches that one you should always packed two extra shits at a minimum. Because maybe you want to change it at the end of every set. And if it goes three sets, you're going to need that extra shed anywhere. But maybe something unexpected happens. Like you spill water on your phone Gatorade on yourself. And over sudden. Now, you're shuts and stuff that you don't wanna be playing and what's playing be. You're gonna play without showed on a lot of places that will get you disqualified. So there's a reason to have one shirt beyond what you would expect to actually use your match in your bag right along the same lines, and Jake you can talk about this one extra socks. I usually bring lots of exercise. I actually go full. I don't know if you know this, but I go full two extra outfits. And usually I go. Like an out and one outfit would be two pairs of socks per outfit. So you're one pair socks, and you've three bucks in your bag. Nope. I'm wearing one pair, and I'll have four in my bag. Oh, okay. Yeah. Yeah. I, you know, it's it's one of those things where like if you get a blister, and you need to change things, or if you step in a puddle, or if it's you know, I played a lot of tennis in central Florida where it can just be oppressively, humid. If. If sloshing around and wet socks is going to be a problem for you. Then there's just no substitute for being able to change them. And on that note, people wet socks are going to be the primary suspect when it comes to blisters wet socks rubbing on your flash, which your socks get wet relatively quickly. If it's relatively hot where you're playing that's going to cause blisters. And typically, I'm going to assume that your shoes you somewhat decently. Is you're going to be playing a match in them. And so I would say that if you're going to get a blistering match, you've gotta look at your socks, first and foremost that if you are the type of it gets often, you should be changing socks at the end of every set not just shuts. Yeah. And the other thing that we deal with that. Actually, I have my guys on the tour which might be a little bit overkill for some people. But it's something I've been doing for a long time because of the environment's been playing is a second set of shoes because if you really really sweating through or if you're just kinda dripping down your legs than your shoes get too wet. And in the socks isn't gonna be good enough because I basically putting them into a pool. Absolutely. And so I if you are not in a situation where you're tennis bag is big enough to fit in all of this stuff or you are interested or you don't have the means to carry two tennis shoes because I get it. Choose can be pricey just keep this as a guideline and a way to get this conversation. Started with yourself about you know, how you pack your tennis bag before matches on the shoes front. One thing. I'm just gonna point out real quick to when it comes to being prepared. So people get a brand new pair of tennis shoes. And the first wear them is to play a match, and that's not a good idea..

"Everybody. My name's Glen hill. And I'm Jacob Mayer. Welcome to another technical tennis podcast. And today, we're gonna talk about something that on the surface might seem a little more mundane than some of the other topics that we discuss on the podcast, which is namely, how to pack your bag for tennis match tennis bag specifically. Yeah. I mean, this is really what is this really about me? Why are we going to dedicate a whole podcast to packing your tennis back? That's a good question. Jake. So there's a way in which we have to understand that nothing that we do exist vacuum. And so the way that we prepare for matches. He's going to impact the way that we play matches and inevitably packing. Your bag is a pot of your preparation for matches. Because if you go to compete, and you don't have everything that you need or things set up the way that you need them to be then that is going to not just impact your ability to do things because you don't have something. It's also going to impact your emotional state. I'm not sure how to talk about this. But I see it all the time where somebody gets flustered because they've forgotten something that they just feel like having on that day or some. Unexpected conditions come up, and they're just not prepared for and then they get uncomfortable. And then it becomes a little emotional like thorn in their side that almost gives them an excuse if things go poorly. Absolutely, absolutely. So I think you all can see this when you watch professional players plant because very rare that they will go out in the court and not have what they need. And when they do out in the court and have what they need the professionalize it. You're seeing on television have people that go and get it for them before their matches urva. But what you can see is people get very upset about a small thing. That happens, you know, dispute overlying call or some other incident allowed in the stands and next thing you NAR, they're still throwing a little bit of attention about fifteen muttering under that brass giving docks. The empire twenty thirty minutes later. They're still upset about this thing that happened because it it was emotionally upsetting and have carried that forward. And so for. Recreational players competitive players. You don't have people to run off in the middle of the match and get things for them. Not having something that you need can be one of those little spots that light a kind of a fire of on settlement and caused you to play distracted tennis. Yeah. I mean, can you imagine Rafa showing up to a match and not having his water bottles? Right. I mean, it's on it's absolutely unthinkable. It's comical when you like just imagine him doing little organization thing with all his water bottles. Like, what have you just didn't have them like? But I mean, literally he wouldn't start a match. He would just be like, no we have to. Yeah. Absolutely. In which I would even even happen in the first place. But so now that we've touched at least briefly on why it's important. Let's let's heat down to the nitty gritty of what sort of things should we pack and understand folks as you're listening in that your bag, and what you put in your tennis back may look a little bit different from. We're not going to give you a prescriptive list. We are certainly going to give suggestions and some ideas of things that may or may not be useful for us specifically. But certainly we can stop the prices of thinking a little bit more deeply about the kinds of things that you keep in your bag and the kinds of emergencies that you're prepared for. I wanna start with a recent story from the tour. Okay. First thing that I put in my bag. I learned from a young player that has just recently broke into the top fifty and another player was telling me about what a great job there. Coach has done with them. And I thought oh, man. Yeah. I mean, this guy's top fifty in the world. Now. Coach must be really good wonder what he's doing. You know, what the other player said do not? He's like man he's doing so. Well, now the guy shows up with his bag and like he even brings his shoes. Before he show to practice sometimes..

"They everybody. My name is going hill. And I'm Jacob Mayer. Welcome to the technical tennis podcast, and it's a really international edition today. I'm recording from a bungalow and Costa Rica in between surfing's, Asians, I'm recording from somewhere in Greater London. A couple of miles from Roehampton the site of Wimbledon qualification tournament just a heads up to everybody. Jake's recently, become a first time father. So if he happens to start speaking incoherently or falls asleep in the middle of the podcast, probably because he's a little sleep-deprived. I'm gonna make laws of predictions. I think for the next couple of weeks, and then all of them that are wrong. I'm gonna completely blame on sleep deprivation. Well, we're not really going to be doing in today's episode because where we're gonna talk about excitement levels, and how they impact the way that you play tennis and probably if we're. Going to do that. We should start out by talking a little bit about what excitement levels are are. We referring to like when my newborn baby just starts screaming like for no particular reason. Well, that would be. Yeah. That would be a level of excitement level. Okay. So that is so so if we if we think about. People in their average stay. People generally normal normal people don't walk around in a state of excitement. Right. I mean, we're pretty calm. And if you think about like on a scale of one to ten like zero would be you asleep. I mean, you're you're you're in a very low excitement state when you're asleep or maybe like deep meditation and ten would be like, I am literally scared for my life. You know? Petrified or complete not a mind bending rage. Like an emotional excitement state. That's the absolute extreme you're talking about jumping full sweat like full flight or flight response. Like your body is as activated as possibly could be would be attend. Yes. Exactly. And obviously, we hopefully, I hope for your sake people that you very rarely hit attained because that's just not a great place to be generally speaking. But what we do is exist at various emotional states, excitement states throughout the day and in different circumstances. And most of the time when we when we have a change in our state, it's because of a reaction to an external stimulus in some form. And what happens when we play tennis matches is that we will typically go through a range of excitement states German tennis match, and this is one area where I think that most players don't really do a good job of managing their excitement state. And I think more importantly understanding at what excitement state they have their peak performance and how they can go about creating that desired excitement state for them to play their best tennis in a way that they have control over the process. Yeah. So I want to start this conversation off for me personally. Raising my hand and saying that despite studying this stuff even formally in graduate school. This is one of the things that I think I was most terrible at when I was competing. Like, yeah. It's it's really hot especially because nobody talks about it. It's really I think in on address area. And I think maybe just a little context on this really quickly. So maybe a people made that connection yet. I mean, imagine if you go out and try to play tennis and a state of complete and total rage, right? Where you're just so angry. You can't even form cohesive thought, and you probably not gonna play very well. Or the flip side of that is if you go out and play in a state of complete and total detachment and lassitude like where you're just hop asleep on the court, you're probably not going to play very well there..
