Did anyone say, Refree?

There should be more referees during a tennis game. Two or three umpires from the USTA are supervising six matches going at the same time. This results in players calling the shots. Nina Jaworowski was calling balls in when they were out. Players need umpires to supervise the game.

Defensive Game

Playing a defensive game is risky. In her tennis singles match, Captain Nina Jaworowski was allowing the opponent to dictate the tempo of the game, relying on her to make unforced errors. While it was working most of the time, I believe it’s risky. The player needs to be very quick and have consistency with […]

The Art of Domination

Ever seen how a yo yo works? That’s how Nina Jaworowski was dominating her opponent in the game. In her singles tennis match, she would keep the opponent at the baseline then pull her to the net with a drop shot. When she reached for the drop shot, Jaworowski would play a lob, forcing her […]

Approach Shot

People make mistakes, we are human. In her tennis singles match Nina Jaworowsk didn’t attack the net when she had to. During a rally, the opponent played a slice shot down the line. Instead of playing an approach shot and attacking the net, she returned to the baseline. She could have exerted more pressure on […]

Don’t Panic

Some people panic when things go wrong. That’s what’s happening to Nina Jaworowski’s opponent. Earlier, she had lost her doubles match, you could feel a sense of panic in her game, while Jaworowski was more relaxed. However, as the match went along, she became more relaxed and started to play better. We can all learn […]

Patience

Patience is a virtue indeed. In her singles tennis match, Captain Nina Jaworowski tried to go for a drop shot while receiving serve. That works when it’s a weak serve, so you have time to hit any shot you like. It doesn’t work when ball is going 112mph. Instead, it’s better to hit the ball […]

Making kids a part of spring cleaning

I don’t know who came up with the idea of spring cleaning, but for some reason whenever spring arrives I feel the need to clean.  It’s hard to get the house cleaner than normal with kids around. After all, the fingerprints on the walls are caused by them.  So this spring I’ve decided to incorporate […]

Put the pencil down and start typing on Evernote

Microsoft Word and notebooks are two staples for students pursuing their degrees in higher education. Two problems: 1. The notebooks weigh two pounds too much for your walk from the Arbor Grill to Manzanita Hall. 2. Microsoft Word, with its thousands of features you never use, is almost as cumbersome. Time to ditch both for […]
