https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/federer-5-keys-champion-mindset-shyam-ramanathan-pmp-cssgb-ains-au17/07/2017 #3 CityVP 🐝 ManjitFirst I look at a persons whole way of being and in Federer his way of being is simply a class act, and then one can be sure that the thinking that emanates from such a person is worthy of due consideration.
I never think in terms of advice because in opinion one size does not fit all, and if we are unique human beings then there is a caveat that we think through at a personal level what we have heard - because that means we have learned to think for ourselves and be who we are under our skins.
Where Federer is a master craftsman, Nadal is a warrior, Nadal is a warrior because he has to work at his game. Much like former England soccer captain Bryan Robson - Robson did not have the skill of a Pele or a Maradona, but his tenacity and work way harder than others meant that what he won in life, he won the harder way.
In this way belief and dream is contextual - Federer cried at Wimbledon as if he won his first Wimbledon title because he knows a certain amount of luck is involved also especially not meeting any of the top four players on the way to winning and this time yes it was against all odds - especially since time and age are not on his side, hence the six month layoff so that he could fully focus on winning Wimbledon one more time.
Comments16/07/2017 #5 CityVP 🐝 ManjitThe story is not over regarding who will be viewed as the best tennis player of all-time but Federer has made it tougher for anyone else to claim that. A victory for Nadal at the US Open will bring him back to within 3 of all time Grand Slam wins. Considering that grass is not Nadal's game, his loss against Muller was epic - counting the 15-13 fifth set loss Nadal played the equivalent of a 7 set game and nearly erased a two set deficit. Next year will therefore be very defining because after 6 years of not getting to the quarter-final stage at Wimbledon - a Nadal Wimbledon win will be very defining in his rivalry with Federer - I expect Nadal to IMPROVE next year, and while it is not of the question that Federer will not win another major title, the way he needs longer time off means his body is feeling the ravages of time. Still an incredible achievement that may never be surpassed as a Wimbledon Champion, but the argument for who is ultimately the greatest tennis player of time is not over. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/tennis/player-qualities/roger-federer-going-for-eighth-title-but-are-rafas-two-greater/

- Producer13/06/2017Physical Intelligence - Day 73The name that interests me today is a Spanish Tennis Champion but not the greatest one, that other one called Carlos Moya. The question today is if a coach can make a difference late in life. As Nadal won the La Decima, a term we most think of...
Comments13/06/2017 #2 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#1 Think of differently, Carlos Moya coached Canadian Milos Raonic and moved up the rankings before parting with in December 2016. Andy Murray has already said that Moya is instrumental in adding to Nadal's game. Djokovic and Murray have both hit a funk. With Nadal finding new gears under Moya, that blocks the path for Djokovic and Andy Murray also stands in that pathway. Even if Federer does not raise his game anymore, Murray still can and Nadal definitely has. Think of how many grand-slams Nadal could win between now and the age of 35 when (the way he is looking now) will still be a force to contend with. These four years is exactly the years Djokovic needed to catch Federer and Nadal. He will surpass Sampras's record and maybe even Federer's but Nadal has found a new lease of life and even despite his lost years in injury and self-doubt, the way he played in the French Open Final was out of this world - a performance that can only be spoken of in terms of best tennis player ever - and that without counting his probable march to surpass Federer as the player with the most grand-slam victories. I can only remember the days we marveled at Sampras, and we are living in a time when we have three players that can now be argued are much better than Sampras. Think of frustration that Djokovic must now feel seeing the improvement in Nadal's game and KNOWING that this phenom is now going to get better at his game ! Even Andy Murray has noted that.

Tomorrow I intend to do wheelies and burn outs along Dono Posso ! This has come at a bit of an awkward time as on Tuesday we take off to , Cambodia, Hong Kong, Cape Town, Johannesburg, Botswana, Namibia , U.K , France and Spain for 12 weeks . First stage should have me hopping, or should I say hobbling across a couple of continents...Oh how slutty am I in pursuit of a good story.
Will HAVE to catch up when I get back, I want to meet your girls. Take care and thanks for stopping by !!09/05/2017 #28 Lada 🏡 PrkicBest wishes for your speedy recovery, @Paul Walters. Like Franci said, your tumble didn't prevent you from writing a good story. :-) Your post pointed out one thing we never noticed until we find ourselves in the situation like yours. The rules on access to public buildings and facilities for persons with reduced mobility are incorporated into the laws and building codes of many countries. But there are still many buildings and open spaces that require to be adjusted for ensuring unimpeded access. In my country too.09/05/2017 #27 Kate PaineAfter becoming connected with you just now and receiving your nice compliments on my posts, I now read this and not only can relate (been there, 3x), but truly laughed out loud. Thank you for this. And I do hope by now you are well on your journey toward a full recovery.08/05/2017 #24 Peter AltschulerI am what my daughter calls decreppled. It is a natural occurrence among people "of a certain age."
It's not that I did anything risky or stupid. I simply discovered that my mind can't control certain things about my body. Like the wearing out of certain well-used parts. And that is now my first consideration: if I ignore the reality of this particular situation, will it cause me greater physical impairment? If the answer is yes, even a little, I decide that I should do something else. Or nothing. Nothing is always a good option.
My aging self is somewhat enigmatic. My doctor assures me that, if he'd never seen me and had only my physical's test results to go by, he'd assume that I'm 23 years old... and an elite athlete. The concept makes me weep (I was never in such good shape at 23).
I remind myself of my 56-year-old car. Whenever I decide it's time to drive it and I fire up the engine, the first thing I hear is the voice of that car. "Are you sure you want to drive me? There's a part I feel is going to give out when you are 20 miles from home. It's one of those parts, too. The kind you won't be able to find for weeks. And you'll have to have it sent to you from Italy. Your choice."
The sad thing is that the car can be fixed a lot more easily than I can. I can't go to the Homo Sapiens Body Shop and pick up replacements. Even if I could, I couldn't install them myself. I need corporeal mechanics. And a team of assistants. And recovery time and space. And I hate that.
So @Paul Walters, get down on your Bali knees and swear before whatever god or entity you trust that you will never, ever do this again.08/05/2017 #22 Kevin PashukSome people will do anything for a story idea... Seriously. Sorry about the SOCII.. (Stubborn Old Coot Induced Injury). They are rarely this serious. It's usually limited to bruising of the ego.

I agree with many of the comments, especially those pointing out that as we age, we sometimes do get into trouble because we don't use our smarts! But at least we're out there trying to stay active.
You're right; life is made for those who can climb stairs; I have a new regard for the difficulties many face every day in every way.
Sure hope you heal quickly!08/05/2017 #20 Robert CormackThis might be a good time @Paul Walters to discuss washroom tactics and new sexual positions.

- Producer30/01/2017IF by Rudyard Kipling, read by Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

I grew up with parents who played both competition and social tennis and was introduced to the sport at an early...
Comments30/01/2017 #3 CityVP 🐝 ManjitIt was a great match, definitely one for the ages - but there is one thing that needs to be said about this match, it was also played in a great setting and even as the players walk from the tunnel, the organizers of the Australian Open have excelled at branding the Open - the design work in the tunnel was stunning, the lighting so well done, the ceremony platform perfect for the occasion - and both players loved playing there and the atmosphere of the Rod Laver Arena magical (not to mention it is Rod Laver who handed the trophy to the winner). I also love the new Australian Open Logo, so modern and stylish that enhanced the occassion. This is what great branding is and how it contributes and adds when it is equally matched with great people who have earned what they are as individual public brand power, the kind that completes what is best about the TOTAL brand experience. Not soap brands for the masses supported by bozo B-Players but superstar brands for people who represent the best of the best.30/01/2017 #1 Mamen 🐝 DelgadoThis Producer is so very emotive my dear friend from The Antipodes @Lance 🐝 Scoular.
I didn't know the video you have linked, and the reading is just superb. I think Federer and Nadal have been very very lucky to match in time and have had each other as a rival, as a friend, as a mirror, as an alter ego. So different and so similar.
You know already I have played tennis for many years, in little competitions as well, and had to give up forced by injury. But I feel the tennis in my blood, and I'm sure I could have lived from it if (if) I have had the opportunity in my teen ages.
They've been very lucky, but specially fans have been very fortunate to enjoy and feel tennis with them, with their gracious and respectful way of living the sport.
Thanks so much for the mention, I enjoyed very much "watching" the semifinal with you despite the distance. 😉
Your tennis friend. Mamen.
Comments29/01/2017 #9 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#8 It will be on TV at 3pm later this afternoon - but it is like watching a movie you always wanted to watch and before you get to watch it, someone tells you how it ended and takes away the suspense. The good thing about sport is that we are watching excellence, so in that regard it is still worth watching, but to view the drama in the moment, that is priceless.29/01/2017 #7 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#3 Shit! shit! Shit! I missed the match, I forgot to set my alarm clock - it apparently has played out the way I had envisaged it - which is why I soooooo much wanted to watch it live. Guess I learned my lesson here YOU SNOOZE - YOU LOSE. Somethings are so much more memorable in the moment.
Comments30/01/2017 #9 CityVP 🐝 ManjitI finally saw the match and what a 5th set battle! I am glad that I did not watch this final set in the wee hours of the morning because this game was so gripping, I can't help whooping and hollering and 5am in the morning this is a different proposition to 5pm when I also knew the result.
Nadal played very well and looked very sharp, but it is Federer who played a game of his life - at times matching Nadal's intensity and then there was that memorable rally near the end of the game that was breathtaking.
Nadal looks like he has got past his years of injury and in this form and on his favourite surface of clay, when the French Open comes, he now must be considered a strong favourite to win it and thus surpass Pete Samprass into 2nd place for all-time grand-slam wins. What a match it was and for sure this game was really important in completing the accolade of Federer being the greatest player in history, with Nadal not that far behind.28/01/2017 #8 Gert ScholtzI have huge admiration for both these players. I love watching their different styles and temperaments on the court. Federer is cool, calm, moves about gracefully and makes it all look almost effortless. Nadal is the power player and feisty fighter who refuses to ever give up. Two old rivals on court again. Two tennis legends!28/01/2017 #3 Javier 🐝 beBeeA great match. Nadal inspire me https://www.bebee.com/producer/@javierbebee/vamossssssssssssss-english-espanol28/01/2017 #2 CityVP 🐝 ManjitYou could not get two people one can admire at the top of their profession than Nadal and Federer. Obviously @Mamen 🐝 Delgado will be ecstatic if her man comes through, but the actuality of this match is it completes Federer's resume - because as dominant and record breaking as he has been, Nadal has been his achilles heel. and he Nadal has the winning record against Federer and will probably still own the head to head record - but defeat tomorrow will give Nadal five straight finals wins against Federer - whereas for Federer this could be one of his last forays into winning another title. Clearly Nadal has overcome his injury woes and there are possibly more finals to come for Nadal - but I think it a road which is shortening for Federer being much older than Nadal - and since Federer has been a great athlete but also a supreme role model for the sport - it would be nice for Federer to win this year.
