We Coach TENNIS — November 18th, 2012

The guest tonight is the one and only Justin Gimelstob. We were finally able to connect with Justin and some say it was our best show yet.

Our guest this evening was supposed to be the incredible Justin Gimelstob. Justin was not able to make the show due to the fact he had a scheduling conflict. We hope to get him on at a later date.

Instead Chuck Kriese, Jason Haynes, Brian Parrott and Mark Bey participated in a improvised round table discussion of the issues.

If you talk to great coaches and great athletes I think a lot of them would say that although there is a lot of science behind it--(tennis and other sports become an art!). The game becomes an art. Maybe not every sport, but I think there is an art to being great as a tennis player. So when somebody comes in and says this is "the formula". That would be like telling an artist this is the only way to do a masterpiece of art and that's not possible. So if you look at tennis as an art, or dance as an art--then sure, there is some science to everything but there is also a lot of art. The bottom line is this-- you cannot speed up everything and fix the process with a formula. You need the guys who are the artists to make it work.
