What it Takes to Win on the ATP Tennis Tour

As Abba have so delicately reminded us over the last forty years; ‘the winner takes it all’ and this is very true for the players on the ATP and WTA Tours who slog it out continuously each day for the love of the sport and the ecstasy of winning tennis matches and tournaments.

But with the top four guys on the ATP Tour (Djokovic, Nadal, Federer and Murray) dominating most of the tournaments they participate in, is there much room left over for others to experience the big wins? For those elite players, how do they continue to keep their winning momentum and strike fear and sheer admiration into the racquets of their opponents?

Former NBA basketball player Larry Bird hit the nail on the head when stating it is all about talent because without that, you have nothing: “A winner is someone who recognizes his God-given talents, works his tail off to develop them into skills, and uses these skills to accomplish his goals.”
