Scott Dunlop: A Common Tennis Experience?

From my time playing and organizing tennis at many places, I have noticed that those who play, share a common experience, which includes a particular passion. I think it has something to do with the unique scoring system and the fact that as a tennis player you are out there on the court with your opponent(s) on an honor system, calling lines and keeping score. You have to admit to good shots and accept that a ball that hits the outside of your line means you lose the point, and potentially a game, set or match. It also has to do with learning, after awhile, that there are so many ways to hit winners and, much more often, to miss shots, that you never really knows what will happen or who will win the (last) point.

There is always something to talk about after a game of tennis at any level! I think an understanding of this general  tennis reality creates a sort of inner smile in people which helps foster a unique camaraderie, both on and off the court.

A New Reality By Nicolas Pereira

This past week in the World Team Tennis ‘Bubble” I have seen the efforts to keep everyone safe while carrying on a team competition with around 60/70 players and coaches onsite. Counting organizers, officials, media, and support personnel are around 150 people trying hard to make this happen. I am very impressed by how the strict protocol has been handled and how everyone is invested in making this event a success, but The Open is a completely different scale of details.
