My Lesson With Martina

Cathy and MartinaI thought it appropriate timing to share an article  from a couple of years ago, written by Bob Albright from    North Shore Golf and Tennis Magazine. When The Boston Lobsters came to the Ferncroft Country Club,  they brought with them fantastic players and amazing legends. It was great tennis to watch and even better when sitting a short chip away from the court. You could hear balls whizzing by at amazing speeds. While they were in town, I had the privilege of giving Martina Navratilova a golf lesson. The article was written the following week. What prompted me to share the article again? Well, as many of you know, Dancing With The Stars is in its new season and it has quite a list of celebrities for this year’s competition, one of whom is Martina. So what better timing then now to bring the article back.Oh, and the answer to the question about Martina giving me a tennis lesson….yes, she did give me a tennis lesson, and one day I will have to write about it.  In the end, she said my backhand was great, the forehand needs work and I should just think about what I told her when we were on the lesson tee.  Be balanced and athletic in your set up, swing through it, accelerate through impact and let the racquet do the work! It did sound very familiar!  Click Practice Makes Perfect for Navratilova and MacPherson  to read the article.
