Tennis Quotes to Note

MHS Tennis Players — Here are some words of wisdom.

"One person's error is another person's winner." – Jordan Reimnitz 

"If you want something you’ve never had, you have to do something you’ve never done." – Anonymous

"Average tennis players have a great variety of shots, while great tennis players hit the same old boring winners." – Vic Braden

“Most young players want to be too flashy. They don’t realize nine good shots will beat one sensational shot. They don’t think about setting up the winning shot with two or three shots that pull the opponent out of position.” – Anonymous

The Man Who Thinks He Can

If you think you are beaten, you are.

If you think you dare not, you don’t.

If you’d like to win, but think you can’t,

It’s almost a cinch you won’t.


If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost.

For out in the world we find–

Success begins with a fellow’s will.

It’s all in the state of mind.


Life’s battles don’t always go

To the stronger or faster man.

But soon or late the man who wins

Is the man who thinks he can.


Walter D. Wintle
