...tribute to a fair play during the #GrandSlam #AusOpen #FrenchOpen #Wimbledon #USOpen rush for a big money and a worldly fame...

Keep making the same
mistakes although you’ve
practiced better way to play?
Your mind’s your worst enemy
inapt to do... choose to say
 
loathes to concentrate
aspire the mental side
of your inner game
the chat between body’ soul
around offensive tackle
 
go under... go up
know how to swing your racket
keep face of calm and
humour... good faith bearing in
head; your play’s as is your life
 
...cat stalking a bird...
Relax a little... conquer
your mind a little
let the something deep within
your heart respond to modern
 
competitive World
intuition telling you;
can you hear me not
over the sound of fear and
restrain and sense of fury
 
dramatic gestures
when chocked on easy volley
ere an ardent crowd?
Go over the shame without
further ado... take slow step
 
reject quid pro quo
play your love-love game without
outcome oriented
mind... nothing out-side’s ever
permanent enough to last
 
satisfy “sweet spot”
within your longing heart that’s
not a concept not
a belief nor something that
can be written in word... laud.
 
This is so real!
Changeless value of beauty
that has not limits.
It’s the very source of
human wisdom’ potential
 
the seed from which life
grows... the origin of love
intuited truth;
real goal in not to win
trophy but have (well) rounded life.
