The time your game is most vulnerable is when you’re ahead; never let up.

Tennis was a big part of my life from as far back as I can remember.

Yes, I hit with heavy top-spin, but when you look at the little rackets I played with, the Maxply Dunlop, you had to hit the very centre all the time. I had my share of miss-hits.

Looking back, in comparison, there wasn’t that much that you could do with a wooden racket. In my day, the matches were certainly much less demanding physically.

Each match is a huge effort from a physical point of view. You can only hit so many balls before your elbow or some part of your body is going to say, ‘Hey, don’t do that to me.’
