Yep. All through junior high, high school, and it even paid some of the bills when I played in college.
I haven’t played in years, but this marathon 11-hour match between Isner and Mahut caught my attention.
Seriously? ELEVEN hours and five minutes?
Isner had 112 aces. I think the highest until that was something like 78 . . .
I’m so inspired by tennis players–well, athletes in general. They all work so hard. The dedication and time spent on improving. The sacrifices made to be the best of the best.
But after an eleven hour match, I would have said I needed a break from tennis like Isner did.
Could you imagine how tired he was? No wonder he lost his next match, huh?
Ever get worn out on something and need to take a break from it?
