U N L E A SH T H E From the Cup to our Local Courts.

What a great memory for tennis in our city. Although we didn’t get the “W,” British Columbia and Vancouver convincingly showed the world that we are a whole lot more than just a viable host city for Davis Cup ties - we’re a bona fide hotbed of national pride. Fans proudly donned their red and white colours, painted maple leafs on their faces, hauled in Canadian flags, and cheered their hearts out for our country’s best players. It was unforgettable, that feeling that swept through us in those few minutes before the arena doors opened on Friday: the marching band was stirring the crowd outside, and everyone cheered as they streamed through the doors. Hard-working volunteers handed out the official “Not on our Court” towels, as the scent of freshly made popcorn filled the halls. Everyone could feel the enormous energy lifting us off the ground. I think we can all confidently say, “we want it back!” In this issue, we look back at the Davis Cup weekend with thoughtful insights (and funny antics) from a few of the the players and coaches. We also get some thoughts from local authorities on how we can apply the same principles of high performance to our own games. And as we transition into spring, the community gears up for team tennis, club events, the Summer Series, Senior Series, Provincial Championships, Stanley Park Open, The VanOpen – and much more. In anticipation of the warmer weather, we all start looking at the new products that could give us that special edge - or maybe just a new top and jacket that will look smart on the clubhouse patio. It may not look like it yet, but get ready: the spring and summer season is coming! We’ll see you out there, for more great memories in the making.

Do you subscribe to any specific systems to help with your mental game? Basically taking my time is the biggest thing. Just focusing on the task at hand, on the next point, and just getting back into it, maybe changing my game up a little bit if something hasn’t been working.

It was clear that you took the loss to Saville pretty hard. When it comes to your mental game, if you feel yourself slipping, how do you talk yourself back into the match? Well, I just try to keep doing my routines. Try not to rush too much, because that’s when I start to make mistakes. Besides that I just try to keep fighting. Make sure I focus on the simple things I’m supposed to do: moving my feet, and making sure I stay sharp.

What’s your favourite court to play on in the world? I would say any of the big Grand Slam courts. Rod Laver… that was a cool experience. Who would you liken yourself to, as far as action heroes are concerned? (Laughs, after some prompting) Yeah, Daniel Craig. He’d be a good guy to be compared with.

FILIP PELIWO (born January 30, 1994) is a Canadian professional tennis player from North Vancouver. He is currently playing on the ITF Junior World Circuit and is Canada’s #1 ranked junior player.

How are you handling all this attention? It’s obviously different. It keeps me busy. I used to be in the background doing my own thing. I’m more out in the open and becoming known. Obviously I’ve got to watch what I’m doing a little more and not slip up, but, well, I like it. (Laughs)

SPORTS

Ever since Filip Piliwo squared off against Luke Saville in the Aussie Open Junior final, the Canadian tennis community has been abuzz with the prospect of another potential Canadian star on the rise. We caught up with him at the Davis Cup for a few words on his recent success.

If there’s one thing we demonstrated,

WE’VE PUT AWAY THE HORNS AND DRUMS.

it was our fervent love for this game.

Our hoarse voices have healed. And Thunderbird Stadium is quiet and dim. But the echoes of a legendary weekend still resound in our ears – especially for the die-hard fans among us. It was so tremendous to take part in a world-class competitive tennis weekend like this one, right here in Vancouver. And even though we didn’t get the result we wanted, it felt like a huge success for the tennis community in this city, and the province.

H O M CEO U R T Now that the Davis Cup is over, we thought it might be nice to get a little peek into the lives, personalities, and character of the key players who made up this event. And here’s to another thunderous showcase before long! >>

Tsonga vs. Dancevic in the 3rd rubber.

The Soul of French Tennis

The Heart of Team Canada

Guy Forget is a commanding figure. It has been said that he embodies the “image of French tennis”. And indeed, who could forget that legendary match point against Pete Sampras in the ‘91 France vs. U.S.A Davis Cup final? It was without a doubt one of the iconic moments in French tennis history. Today, Forget is known for his commanding leadership, and his ability to coax the absolute best from the players he works with. After speaking with him for a few minutes, we could see why players respond to him: he is, quite simply, an extremely cool guy.

Martin Laurendeau is a true believer in Canadian tennis. He’s an accomplished player in his own right – he was the first Canadian to advance to the fourth round of a Grand Slam, at the ‘88 U.S. Open, and played at the Seoul Olympics, among many other accomplishments. He has been the Davis Cup Canadian Captain since 2004, and has led the squad to victory in five ties in that time. He’s out to prove that Canada has some of the best talent in the world – and that we can nurture that talent from junior players to major contenders on the world stage.

What are some of the changes you’ve seen from your peak in 91-92 to today? Well, I think the game got a lot more powerful – the intensity of the game has increased. That’s for sure. Guys now use different strings. The game is a bit different. On the other hand, technically, maybe it’s not as precise or as good as before, especially when you look at the volley game. But overall, the principle of the game is still the same: you have to impose your game, not show any weaknesses, be fit, and in the big points, to – I don’t want say bluff – but to surprise your opponent. In that way, it hasn’t changed. What do you look for in a young player? What makes a champion? The fire. The passion that you have.

Because the passion is what makes you spend time on the court, working out, without having the feeling that you’re working. And then the ability you have to deal with your emotions. When you’re frustrated, when things don’t go your way, to just keep it to yourself and keep on fighting. And I think sometimes you already see that in young players, from a very young age.

It’s been 20 years since Davis Cup tennis was played on Vancouver soil. Do you see any major differences in tennis between now and 20 years ago? Like in any sport, the game evolves. But regardless of the speed of execution, you only have so many top-100 players (laughs), and the level of those players is always going to be exciting to watch.

So what would you say to a player like Julien, when he struggled in the match against Milos? Well, he was struggling. He couldn’t win any points on Milos’ serve. He was always under pressure. He was down two sets to love. It was a great play by Milos. So I said, “Just keep playing. Maybe he throws down a double fault, and then you hit a good one. And then if you break it’s a set, so you’re back in the race.” That didn’t happen. You know, in a way, when you lose, it’s part of the deal. We’re still proud of him even though he lost. And maybe it was because of that feeling that he played a good doubles match (on Saturday).

What do you look for in a young player? You’ve got to look at the mental aspects before you look at the technique and other skills. I’ve seen a lot of players that have weird grips and weird strokes, and it’s not textbook, really, but it’s effective. Because it’s paired with solid head and great heart, and all the values you need. Definitely for me the #1 thing is the mental aspect.

individual sport, you can’t hide, really – you’re facing your opponent. It’s difficult to conceal emotions, and it’s very dangerous to repress them. The question is how do you channel those emotions? If it’s got to come out, it’s got to come out in whatever way works for you. How well do you see the Canadian Junior program setting us up for success? I think we have one of the best in the world, honestly. I’ve seen all the other federations and academies around the world and as a federation, outside of the Grand Slam nations, we have the best program.

Do you think it’s more important in tennis to conceal your emotions than in other sports? Definitely, being an

to see personalities like these on home soil. We approached team France’s two biggest names –

Jo-Wilfred Tsonga and Gaël Monfils – and tried to get a read on who they are as people. As it turns out, these two childhood friends are as nice, and as funny, as they seem on court.

What’s your second favourite sport? (No hesitation at all.) It’s definitely basketball. Can you dunk? Yes. Of course. (Looks kind of surprised that I asked.) How much would you charge me for a tennis lesson? If you’re a good friend, zero. If you’re not, well, I don’t think I would bother. (I guess I’ll have to perfect my slice serve elsewhere.) Favourite player to play? (Points over to Tsonga) Jo, I would say. We are good friends by now. What’s your favourite court in the world to play on? Philippe Chatrier, at Roland Garros. What action movie star do you think you’re most like? Denzel Washington. No question.

Which one? All three of them. Are you excited for the Hobbit? (He didn’t know about the Hobbit, and we lost a good minute with me explaining to him that it was a prequel from the same series and that it was coming out this year.) Favourite player to play for fun? Gaël (motions toward him – all laugh) What’s with the dance? It comes from the first time I entered the top 100 versus Lleyton Hewitt. He was the defending champion in Queens for two years, and I beat him, I think it was the second round. And I did it (the dance, that is), and the crowd, who is usually really quiet, gave me a standing ovation. I thought, “if it works there, it should work everywhere.”

I’m 37. Do you think it’s gonna happen for me? Why not? (Laughed a little too loudly.)

What do you hate most about travelling? Being away from my family and friends. Who’s the nicest guy on tour? There are plenty. Most of the guys on the tour are nice. Yeah, there are plenty. (Clearly doesn’t want to commit to one.)

What’s the most embarrassing thing to happen to you during a match? One time, on a forehand, I farted. I wonder if anyone heard it. (We both laugh. He actually makes a fart sound.)

When did you know that you were a real contender? Maybe now. (Both laugh).

What action star do you think you’re most like? (Thinks for a very, very long time.) I don’t know. Morgan Freeman. But, maybe, depends. I have both sides. Morgan Freeman, or Jason Statham.

What do you like to do when you’re not training or competing? Well, chill out with my buddies, be with my girlfriend, be with my family, you know – like everyone wants to do.

What is your favourite movie? Lord of the Rings.

When did you know you could become a real contender? Fifteen. At fifteen I said “I can do it.”

A lot of you on the French team live in Switzerland. Why? Yeah, it’s great. It’s beautiful there. I love it.

What’s your favourite court to play on in the whole world? (Thinks very carefully) Uhhh, maybe the court where I first start to play. In my first club.

Her coach has all of these pulleys and elastics hooked onto her arms, waist, and legs when on the practice courts. It looks crazy. But she is a really nice person. What music do you listen to pre-match to fire you up? I don’t’ listen to music pre-match because I don’t want just one song stuck in my head for a whole match. Then I am singing it in when I need to have other thoughts. I usually go eat and then check the score of the match court I am on or chat to friends.

GIRL ON TOUR

Speaking of hometown heroes (or heroines, as the case may be), we caught up with BC WTA Tour star Rebecca Marino on the off-court lifestyle – and the best performance advice she ever got.

Best coaching tip you ever have received? They came from my first coaches JJ Mahoney and Neil Parker when taking group lessons. They said to just go swing hard and go for all my shots. We can worry about range later. My whole game has developed around that concept and helped me to not be afraid of going big.

A step-by-step guide on how to manage your time—and your mental game —between points.

In tennis, time management is critical to success. To keep your cool, and stay on top of things, you have to give yourself a moment to pause, and plan the next step. And when you have a routine to return to between points, it makes it that much easier to use your time to your advantage.

16 SECOND CURE 2 | RELAXATION Breathe deeply and walk confidently. give yourself 4 seconds to relax as you walk toward the baseline. TIP: Keep from losing or wandering concentration by focusing your eyes on your strings.

JEREMY SALVO

3 | CONCENTRATION/ STRATEGIZING Plan your strategy, and visualize the point.

Jeremy has consistently been ranked in the top 5 in BC’s Men’s Open division and is a former #1 singles and #1 doubles player for the University of Texas-Pan American while on full scholarship. He is also a provincial coach and works with high performance players at the Vancouver Lawn Tennis and Badminton Club.

What kind of point to play?

15 40 RED LIGHT SITUATION 2 points down in the game score: Play safe shots.

30 15 YELLOW LIGHT SITUATION 1 point up, down or even: Play the point neutral.

40 15 1 | POSITIVE RESPONSE Immediately after a point, make some kind of positive gesture. Straighten your posture, pump your fist – anything to help you let go and focus on what’s next and you can do it.

26

| AXIS BC’S WORLD OF TENNIS | SPRING 2012

GREEN LIGHT 2 points up in score: Go for it! DECIDE: Use your strengths, attack their weaknesses, or both? If you’re not sure, go with your strength.

4 | PREPARATION This is your Excalibur moment. Step up to the baseline for serve. (Or, to the return spot.) Create a routine or ritual, something you are comfortable with. See yourself executing well as you carry out this ritual. If you follow this method closely, you’ll play a whole lot better – and save plenty of dough on rackets!

BC’s Year-End #1 Rankings There’s a lot of talk these days about home-grown talent. For good reason: Canada’s on court stock has been rising in recent years. And with the success of BC players like Rebecca Marino, Vasek Pospisil, and Filip Piliwo, we’ve got our eyes on home shores. Here’s a look at our #1 champs, from young guns to veteran sluggers.

DR. DAVID COX has been helping elite athletes to perform at their best for years. He’s worked with the Vancouver White Caps, the Canadian Olympic Basketball team, and, of course, Canada’s Davis Cup athletes (among many others). We had a chance to catch up with Dr. Cox recently. What follows are just a few of the insights he shared with us. We hope you find them useful – on court, and in your life.

Eye on the Ball Focus on process, and outcomes take care of themselves

What do you think makes for a strong mental game? What role do emotions play? Tennis is a sport that requires you to be focused emotionally, and to keep your emotions under control. You make a lot of errors in tennis. Keep in mind, most of the points that even elite players lose are lost on an error – not a winner by their opponent. Emotions can be your ally, or they can be your enemy; it depends how you use them. Anger need not be a negative emotion – it can be a positive energy. It’s important to accept the emotion, and use that emotion to your advantage. This positive use of emotions – to help you stay energized – is important, and it overlaps with your ability to stay focused on the task. What are some specific techniques that players can use to stay focused and on track? You need to focus your attention on the court, and not be distracted by things that are irrelevant to the task of actually playing the game. For example, just focus on the ball – on hitting the ball. Players think, “I have to get this serve in.” I say, “No, you don’t. You have to hit it.” If you focus on getting it in, that’s an outcome. You need to stay focused on the process of executing the serve. That’s why people often get tight (and sometimes choke) at the end 30

| AXIS BC’S WORLD OF TENNIS | SPRING 2012

of matches. They’ll be playing well and then they say “Okay, now it’s set point. I have to get my first serve in.” What they’re now focused on is the outcome rather than the process. They tighten up, and the serve that was flowing so beautifully now becomes an awkward experience. Again, focus on the process, and the outcome will take care of itself. If you think about not missing, you run into problems. If you tell someone “Don’t think about white bears,” what do they think about? So stay focused on the process, on things like moving your feet, taking your racket back, following through, watching the ball, etc. instead of getting it in, which is an outcome – a “white bear.” When you combine emotion, and focus, or attention, you get what I would call intensity. We often don’t know what’s happening, mentally, until it’s too late. How can we monitor our state of mind? After a match you can find yourself saying: “What happened? How did I lose that match? At what point did I lose control?” That’s where strategies like routines between points come in. They help you to slow things down when you lose your focus and rush your game. You can use your breathing to relax the body and refocus your mind to the task.

You can use key phrases or scripts to manage your self-talk. Tell yourself to “breathe”, to “refocus”, to “punch” your volleys, Good players will often write down a game plan, and they refer to it during changeovers. Little phrases that get you back on task will help to re –focus and monitor what is going on during a match. For the average recreational player, do you have any little known tips on how to improve? Players at all levels need to understand that practice is useful for competition to the extent that practice is like competition. In order to improve you need to push yourself out of your comfort zone when you practice. Drills are useful in this regard as they can help to expose a weakness that you want to work on. It creates an emotionally charged climate which allows you to prepare for the emotions you will experience in competition. For example, if you have problems with opponents who serve and volley, practice against players that serve and volley. If you dislike playing lefties, find a lefty and play him as much as you can until you become comfortable with it. You look to deliberately practice in the areas in which you want to improve. If you really want to get better, you have to push yourself in practice.
