“So much of the training over the last year was apparent when adversity hit or the pressure of the moment did not produce the best tennis and Evan was able to sort through the situation with a response that gave him advantages. This usually happened during times where advantages were not apparent.In a day where coaches spoon feed information, protect kids and never allow them the opportunities to push through adversity so kids “feel comfortable” training, creating a culture that does not produce champions, instead creates low hanging fruit – Thank you Clay for allowing us to train in an unpopular way and thank you to all the coaches at Centercourt who sacrificed for an unknown.”
