This inspirational print was written by the athlete, for the athlete, and represents a "life statement". It bridges the gap between every generation of athlete that has ever played the game, simply because they love to play the game. Nothing more, and nothing less!

It is heat pressed to a foam board so it will last a lifetime. It is then finished with a clear and durable acrylic glass. Comes with hanging hardware. Looks great in your home or office. Shipped, protected, in a sturdy mirror box.
Quote Appearing on print:
"Time and again, tennis offers me the opportunity to excel past my mental and physical limits, achieving what I did not think was possible. This game defines the word competition, and I live for it. Every point of each match is a test. A test comparing my preparation and love for tennis to that of my opponents. I live for that opportunity to shake hands with my opponents after a match, looking into their eyes, exhausted, shirt soaked, dehydrated, and seeing defeat in their eyes. I live to hear the silent echo of an ace hitting the back fence. I live for tennis' one-on-one challenges, and the sirens of this game that grow louder in my heart until I can play again. These are the reasons why I wake up for that early morning lesson, why I hit crosscourt passing shots until my hands blister, why I hit baskets of serves until my shoulder begs me to stop: And Why I Hit One More!"
