Preparation for Roland-Garros

15.04.2009 | Tennis

Roger, Rafael Nadal, Gaël Monfils, Andy Murray... A total of 12 of the best players of the Tour will take part in the inaugural Guinot Mary Cohr Masters première tournament, set for May 20-22 at the Paris Golf & Country Club in Rueil-Malmaison on the outskirts of Paris.


Eight other players including David Nalbandian, Marat Safin, James Blake, Tommy Haas, Stanislas Wawrinka and the Frenchmen Julien Benneteau and Arnaud Clément will join this dream quartet for an unusual and original set-up.


The players will meet as teammates and opponents in a unique new event that will be staged on red clay in Paris providing ideal preparation for the French Open. The team competition will feature the same balls and court conditions as Roland Garros. The 12 players will be divided up into two teams of six, Guinot vs. Mary Cohr, coached by internationally renowned captains. Two best-of-three set matches a day from 1:30 p.m. onwards will commence. Each player will play once only during the three-day tournament and the two captains will challenge one another on the Friday just before the presentation of the trophy. Because the stands are nearer the courts than anywhere else, the spectators will get a close-up of the stars in competition.

If you didn't do something quickly you'll be dropped to #4 at the end of year. All you need is to get a mentor to strengthen your mental status at big moment. Apart from that your backhand is the weakness of all. 80% of errors were from backhand. Also try
