Patricia Hy-Boulais: Jumpstart To An Elite Mindset Webinar Series

The coronavirus pandemic has changed our way of living and thoughts in more ways than one. The effect can either send you to misery or you can fight back and prevail. Your life will never return to its normalcy but you can prepare to be a better version of yourself. Once this crisis has settled and becomes a thing of the past, you need to be ready to get off the block quickly.

The cancellation of year-end standardized exit exams around the world means that this year, the SAT may very well be the only international standardized exam that takes place.

Catching Up With Rob Seguso (a.k.a Goose) and Carling Basset-Seguso

Doug and Ken actually were roommates and doubles partners first, before Ken and I became partners. We were a close knit team. I have fond memories of taking van trips to play matches against other universities, all over the United States. In my second year at SIUE we had a lot of success beating a number of top ranked colleges including the number one ranked team at the time. I remember one spring break, it must have been five of us piled into Ken Flach’s car and drove from Illinois to Florida to stay with my family. We had so much fun traveling as a team.

Renata Olah: Part 3 – How Healthy Food Affects Children

Your great-great grandmother would know potatoes. She’d be wary (and we should be, too) of potato chips, not to mention French fries with chili cheese sauce. She’d recognize fresh strawberries and oats, not strawberry flavoured breakfast cereal. She’d know whole-grain bread, not bagel snack chips.
If she were from Italy, she’d know fresh tomatoes, garlic, and herbs, not canned tomato sauce. What, more specifically, are real, or good, carbs? They’re fresh fruits; fresh vegetables; whole grains like oats, barley, whole-grain couscous, brown rice, quinoa, millet, and sprouted whole-grain bread; starchy vegetables like potatoes, corn, and yams; and legumes like black beans, peas, and pinto beans.

Jocelyn Robichaud: The Impact of Confinement on Player Development

One important thing to know is that we can compare this period to an injury, or even a rehabilitation condition. Several professional players, notably Rafael Nadal, have had to go through difficult periods and prolonged absences from competition to recover from an injury. Examples can also be found among young athletes: Bianca Andreescu (foot stress fracture) or Felix Auger-Aliassime (knee injury) had to be sidelined for a few months during their adolescence. These moments of adversity did not prevent them from obtaining exceptional results upon their return to the court.

The Importance of National Bank Open

With the first Grand Slam of the year winding down, I wanted to do a little introduction to the main draw players, who competed on the collegiate level before turning pro. This will be a short series of four parts: men’s singles, women’s singles, men’s doubles, and women’s doubles.
