Haters, do you have someone in your tennis circle whom you just can't beat? Someone who makes you feel like he should be paying you for being his ball machine?
For me, it's my Worthy Opponent Robert Kaplan.
We play weekly. He gets to practice hitting stinging, short, cross-court winners and his signature inside-out forehand deep in the corner to my backhand. I get to practice anger management: It's not failure, it's a learning experience! Accept the outcome, but keep an optimistic focus!
