Tennis Article: It's A Tennis Dance!

Randy Lynn RutledgeContributor IFebruary 25, 2010

The sounds of footwork patterns on the tennis court surface, the rhythm of your breathing, an awareness of your own heartbeat, and the varying sounds of racket strings manipulating the tennis ball. All of these sounds blend together to create tennis background "music" for your sense of hearing. The beat of this music helps you to become one with the present moment.
All of the experiences of your entire life, measured in minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, and years, and all that you value and cherish, slowly fade from your conscious awareness. Your full attention and focus is in the here and now. Nothing else matters. The present moment has no time divisions. The present moment flows. Your usual awareness of time fades away.
The game of tennis grows more real with each stroke of your tennis racket and each breath you take. The music of tennis softens and you dance with grace and style. The tennis ball is your beautiful dance partner.
