Jesse Flores: Junior on the Move


***Jesse is 15, he started playing tennis at age 12, he was a rep soccer player, played basketball, football and baseball, rep level as well… Not a bad athlete. Started at the Oakville Club with Australian Steve Taylor then went to the Tennis School with Dani Naraizznao for the last year and a half. He now trains at ACE Tennis in Burlington. Last week he received the last spot from Ontario to the Canadian U 16 Nationals in Montreal. In the first round he beat third seed Akhil Mehta from Alberta 7-6 [5], 3-6, 7-5 in the third for the biggest upset of the event. Today he beat Alexander Berdnikoff also of Alberta 7-5, 6-3 to qualify for the quarter finals in his first national championship.***


ONcourt: How does it feel to be called a rookie by your teammates and now you are in the quarters when some of them are out of the tournament?

Jesse Flores: Feels very lucky, fortunate, I can at least trash talk with Martin Beran, Daniel Hoang, Penfield Binet and Andreas Olave.

ONcourt: You seem calm on court, are you?

JF: I would say I am very calm and very relaxed on and off the court, I am very laid back and really don’t have many worries.

ONcourt: You really seem to love playing. Is tennis different than all those other sports or do you feel the same?

JF: The sports are the same in the attitude you must bring to the competition, but it is completely different because it’s you and your opponent , one on one, not a team and you can’t rely on anybody else.

ONcourt: What is the reaction at home with this sudden success?

JF: They are surprised, they think I’m kidding when I tell them I won; they are very happy and also happy that their investment in my tennis is bringing results

ONcourt: Tomorrow the quarters, how will you approach that?

JF: The same as my last two matches, not thinking ahead, just taking one step at a time, playing my game and staying focus.

    But there surely is an emotional component to it. Probably every obese person has been overeating for emotional reasons at some point. In fact, we all have been using food to soothe our fears and stress and unless we found other ways to cope with it we were doomed. This is probably why stress promotes obesity, it causes us to overeat if we cannot deal with it otherwise. My point is: if a diet works pretty well for years (not a week or a month) and then it stops it’s probably because it’s no longer followed or because it’s abused (i.e. one massively overeats). And btw. I am speaking here about no one other but myself

    I am 6 weeks into my 4 month package of Phentaslim and have to say happy with the results so far. Weight loss has slowed down a little this week but so far lost I have lost 18lbs! Not noticed any side effects but I do drink 3-4 coffees a day so maybe if you dont you may experience some.
    I am well on the way to my target weight, only another 10lbs to go. Will keep you updated when I reach the target
