This Kid is on Fire
Huge Shout out to Owen Clifford on not only winning his first Singles tennis tournament ever 3 weeks ago at an NC L5 but following it up with his 2nd title NC L4 and 3rd title, another NC L5 for back to back to back wins. Way to go Owen, we are so proud of you!
" I always believed that when I am playing bad, when I am not winning, you don't have to find excuses outside or reasons outside. You have to look at yourself in the mirror and say, thats my fault. (it) is not a question of coach...not a question of physiotherapist or physical trainer. Is a question of myself "
