Second Serve

Alan Der Ohannessian

Too much fear causes people to be overcautious. In women’s tennis doubles match, Captain, Whitney Paluch was hitting weak second serves.

Her second topspin serve was so weak that the opponent was hitting forehand winner and giving a sarcastic smile. She was also playing into the opponent’s forehand, her biggest forte.

Instead she could have played a body serve to throw her of balance and played with more courage. Fear reflects in a person’s performance resulting in poor results.

We can all learn that overcoming fear is solution to most of our problems. Play with courage, Paluch.
