I apologize for the blog slacking going on this week. I have not been on my blogging grind. I admit it. I have however been on my training grind though. I am working as hard as possible and looking forward to the upcoming tournaments. I will be leaving for Winnetka, IL on Friday morning to get ready for the challenger event. Which will be followed by three weeks of World Team Tennis. I will be playing for the Springfield, MO Lasers. I am pretty pumped to see what WTT is all about. I have heard it is pretty awesome. Time will tell though. You can check the schedule here to see if you can make it to any of the matches.
On a different note, tropical storm Debby has been doing work down here for the past couple of days. I haven't seen the sun in a quick minute (that is a long time in awesome people lingo). It has literally rained for two days straight and is supposed to continue for another two days. There have been winds up to sixty MPH and tornado warnings for the better part of today. It isn't exactly ideal for hitting tennis balls. Luckily we have a few indoor courts to work with. We can usually get on for at least an hour at some point in the worst case scenario. Needless to say, Debby is a real jerk. That pretty much sums up that topic.
That is about all of the updates I have for you guys. I do want to leave you with a little inspiration though (pictured below). If I ever feel like I am in need of a little boost, I go to that beauty of a picture. I can't help but get a little bit emotional sometimes. One time I looked at it for a little too long and tackled the guy next to me out of sheer adrenaline (that didn't actually happen, but the thought did cross my mind a few times). I just can't help but get jacked up about Ole Miss athletics, and football season is starting just around the bend. I could talk about that all day long. I don't want to scare you guys off though. I love The University of Mississippi. It is just a part of me. I can't hide it. It feels good to get that off my chest.
Anyways, it is about time for me to get some rest. Thanks again for reading along. I hope to have a productive week of practice before tournament time. I will keep you guys posted. Don't hesitate to comment and check out the other links on the site. Be blessed.
All the best,
