LIFE TIPS FROM SERENA WILLIAMS

WIMBLEDON: WhenWIMBLEDON: When one thinks back 12 months, Serena Williams had played just one event in eleven months, just a couple of matches at Eastbourne, coming into Wimbledon. She had been through all the trials with her health and so many in tennis questioned if the sport had seen the end of her. But Serena was not done. Wimbledon 2011 was just the first step.
 
Fast forward to now and here she is standing in the final of Wimbledon all over again. It has been a remarkable journey of toil, drive and dedication and has to be regarded as one of the great comebacks in all sport.
 
“I'm just happy. I'm so happy to be playing. I'm so happy to be on the court,” Serena said. “I feel like this is where I belong. I mean, maybe I don't belong in a relationship. Maybe I don't belong somewhere else. But I know for a fact I do belong on this tennis court.”
 
And she showed that in getting to her seventh Wimbledon final.
 
There is no better feeling than to close out a big match with a booming ace and that's exactly what the Serena did. Bang, right down the T-junction Serena Williams fired her 24th ace of the match against Victoria Azarenka on match point and then threw her arms up in the air in victory.
 
That ace created a new Wimbledon ace record however the record didn't need to change hands because Serena had set the record with 23 aces just a few days before.
 
“I had absolutely no idea; it really didn't feel like I hit 24 aces at all,” Serena said. “I honestly felt like I hit maybe 10. Like I wasn't going for that much. I was just going to play well, to serve well, to do the best I could.
 
When the second set of this match went into a tie -break Serena realised she had been getting ahead of herself and thinking ahead to the final, so she brought herself back to the moment and duly won the tie-break.
 
When interviewed afterwards Serena gave thanks to her sister Venus for spending half an hour helping her ” Weed out the negative thoughts in her mind ” prior to this semi-final.
 
Where do you ” Belong ” where are you your most happy ?
 
Today and any other day ” Just do the best you can “
 
Stay in the Now, in the Moment
 
We all have negative thoughts , and constantly need to weed them out to be replaced with positive thoughts and the outcomes we desire.
