Innovative way to become a winner

 

 

 

Every sport evolves and tennis has some visible changes too. Going from wooden racquets to equipment with computer chip inside or exchanging natural gut for polyester string, which gives you more spin to your shots are areas that show some modifications in our sport.

Positive attitude as a key to success

 

 

 

The difference between team and individual sports can be easily found in mental skills. In sports like soccer or basketball, players don’t have to perform well to win the match.
