Amazing Will Power
But tonight, I was bewildered by a different kind of power - the mental strength of the players, especially Hewitt. Hewitt pushed himself to the human physical limit, digging out balls after balls from behind the baseline cunningly angled by Roddick. Every time Roddick hit those powerful balls which seemed almost impossible for any human beings to return, Hewitt did it, and did it with much fighting spirit to force errors from the frustrated Roddick. In the end, Hewitt's amazing fighting spirit rewarded him a spot in the mens finals.
Although kendo and tennis share little similarities in terms of game rules and techniques, there are so much to learn from the mental aspects between the two sports. Hewitt is a good example for anyone who wants to excel in sports or life in general. No matter how tired his body is, Hewitt does not give up. In his mind, every ball are just as important to him as any other. Hewitt's action tonight fits perfectly into Payne sensei's favourite saying, 'treat every fight as the last fight in your life'. In every kendo session, I should always give everything I got. There is only one way to improve - keep trying and never give up.
