I hear that in addition to skiing you like to play
tennis. These aren't two sports you necessarily
think of as going hand-in-hand. But do you find
playing tennis helps you with your quickness and
Yes, all sports really. No one seems to deny the
fact that any sport that helps you with coordination,
focus, movement, helps you with other sports.
Especially tennis, which is explosive power, full-body
coordination, your hands, obviously are the instrument
for the racket, but your feet have to be there, you have
to be in perfect balance, just to get your shots.
So there's a huge fitness component to tennis. But
more than anything I would say it's a mental game.
It's long - you're out there for hours at a time in a
match. You know, tennis can go both ways.
You can hit a lot of shots that are bad each match, and
you can hit a lot of shots that are good. So the
mental component to that is where I think the biggest
benefits are as far as crossover to other sports.
