To be a professional tennis player one needs to expose a competitive spirit, to be physically as well as mentally strong and passionate about the game.
In tennis sport you can’t just accumulate stats; this game is not about this. Just good game and the quality of your shots won’t carry you to victory.
You must fight a living, breathing opponent, one who could actually hit back. That’s a completely different ball game by psychology. Such close-handed combat gives tennis its key edge of perversity. The best players aren’t always the smoothest or prettiest hitters; they’re the ones who, when all is said and done, know how to make their opponents lose.
Best of the best tennis players aren’t always the hardest or smoothest hitters. They are just the ones, who know how to defeat their opponent even after all is said and done.
Of course, we can’t pretend that tennis is the same as 50 years ago, because it has been transformed cardinally.
And the legends of the 1960s were playing under the radically different conditions as nowadays tennis champions.
At the end of the ’60s tennis game became professionalized and as a result it progressed rapidly and meticulously. Currently, racquets and players have increased, surfaces became slower, backhands have two hands on them, and the majority of players bang them from the baseline instead of following them to the net.
However, there is one entrenched tradition in tennis that the one, who is once a champion, is always a champion.
The experience of how to win and the capability to beat an opponent exceeds eras and equipment.
In the mid-1970s, a young Jimmy Connors won and lost some hard matches against John Newcombe and Aussies Rod Laver. More than ten years later, at the U.S. Open, senescence Jimbo went five sets with a youthful Andre Agassi. Fifteen years later, at the Open, an aging Agassi went five sets with a young Roger Federer. Currently an aging Federer holds his own matches with the following breed.
Similar sequence exists on the women’s side. At the beginning of the 1970s, Margaret Court, aged 31, had 3 close matches in a league with Chris Evert, who was at least twice younger than her opponent. In the mid-’80s, 30-year-old Evert, played 6-7 against the future tennis star Steffi Graf. In the late ’90s, Steffi Graf, aged near 30, split her only 2 matches with a teenager, who nowadays is considered to be the most thriving player for the last 10 years. Her name is Serena Williams. Great players develop with the sport, and gain all comers.
