Federer and Nadal Tactics – Why Nadal Owns Federer

I witnessed Roger Federer once again lost to Rafael Nadal in a Major tournament.  Federers record against Nadal at such a stage was 2 – 7 going in so, in lieu of this, it isn’t much of a surprise that he fell to his biggest rival. What is surprising, however, is the way he lost.

You would imagine that after seeing Nadal fall to Djokovic 6 times last year that Federer would take a page from Novaks gameplan and maybe implement it a bit into his own.

But Roger is too good for that, has too many spectacular shots in his arsenal, that to resort to a singular, simple gameplan would just be too… boring.

Numerous times last night Federer went down the line on a approach shot to Nadals forehand.  And nearly everytime he did this, or at least on most of the big points, Nadal came up with a miraculous passing shot. Well, maybe not miraculus.

The tennis world knows that Nadal has one of the deadliest forehands of all time and, coupled with his extraordinary will power and supreme strength, a forehand passing shot against Federer is, well, simple.

What Federer should of done, and what Novak Djokovic did so well against Nadal in 2011, is go to his backhand. And go to it constantly. Wear it down.

Frustrate Nadal the way Nadal frusterates Federer.  He did it a few times last night, hitting clean cross-court forehands that were both deep and hard to Nadals ‘weaker’ wing.Would it of made a difference? Pundits will tell you that no, not a chance, Nadal is in Federers head, always has been, and no game plan will change this.

But consider this: at 4-4 in the 4th set last night Federer was up 40 30 and serving to go up 5-4. He hit a hard, wide serve to Nadals backhand, which Nadal then returned short and cross-court. Federer, pouncing on the opportunity to unleash his lethal forehand, approached the net and sent the ball down the line.

What did Nadal do? He sprinted across the court, roared like a warrior, and rocketed the ball right by Federer. He screamed in approval and lept to his feet as Federer, who had seenFederer forehand is one of the best of all timeenough, walked away looking a little dejected.

All match this had happened, especially on big, tense points. Although Nadal still may have made the pass, a forehand to Nadals backhand at that point may have won him the game. He may have then forced a 5th set where the drama sureley would have been breathtaking.

Instead he was broken that game – perhaps in more ways then one. As he walked off the court the following game, to the background of jubliant crys fron Nadal, one has to wonder how many more times Federer can handle a bitter loss to his biggest rival.

Lessons To Be Learned From Watching The Pros

Me and my friends are a mixture of beginners and intermediates. We used different kind of racquets and have different types of skills. That is why it is very important for us to learn from the pros. Oh and by the way, here is an awesome guide from Swing It Big regarding intermediate racquets.

The ladies at the Aus­tralian Open have had some ter­rific sin­gles matches. Of course, so have the men, but I digress. What was par­tic­u­larly fas­ci­nat­ing regard­ing the semi-final match between Car­o­line Woz­ni­acki and Li Na was how the match momen­tum swung one way and then went 180 degrees in the other.

For us mere ama­teurs, this is some­thing we can use in our own game. Car­o­line (I feel as if I can call her by her first name since I fol­low her on Twit­ter!) was in com­plete con­trol of the match in the first set. Li Na, whose fore­hand is bril­liant, kept hit­ting long.

Woz used bril­liant foot­work to get to every shot Li Na hit towards the side­lines. This forced Li Na to go for more than she wanted, and she kept sail­ing the balls long.

Prac­tice Good Ten­nis Footwork

What are the lessons we, as over forty recre­ational ath­letes, can glean from the first set of this match? First and fore­most, prac­tice good foot­work! If you have a coach or instruc­tor, have him or her work with you on foot­work drills. If you do not have a coach or ten­nis pro to help you, all is not lost.

Pur­chase some plas­tic cones, or use empty ten­nis cans if you want, and set them up along the base­line. For this first drill, you really only need two cones. Set one cone halfway between the ser­vice mark and the ad alley. Place the other one in exactly the same spot towards the deuce alley.

Lean with your head towards one of the cone. Your head is one-seventh of your body weight, so wher­ever that nog­gin of yours goes when it is off cen­ter, your body is going to fol­low. Now trot towards the cone. Cir­cle it by straight­en­ing your body and lean­ing the other way.

Do fig­ure eights like this until winded. As you progress, you can run faster and spread the cones fur­ther apart. At first, how­ever, you just want to trot and keep the fig­ure eight rel­a­tively close. No need in pulling a ham­string dur­ing prac­tice!

Obvi­ously, there are many, many more foot­work drills for ten­nis. Your ten­nis foot­work prac­tice will develop over time. Don’t worry. I have plans on post­ing many more foot­work drills as this site devel­ops. Videos will be com­ing soon, too!

One more thing regard­ing Car­o­line Wozniacki’s foot­work. Notice how when she goes for a ball, she leans in that direc­tion and allows her body to fol­low along. She isn’t forc­ing or try­ing to power her way to the ball. She’s let­ting grav­ity be her friend!

You should do the same. Hey, you and I are over forty (I’m over fifty!) and we should take any help we can get! What I found amus­ing was lis­ten­ing to the com­men­ta­tors. Here in the US, the Aus­tralian Open is broad­cast on ESPN.

The women’s matches are usu­ally cov­ered by Pam Shriver and Mary Jo Fer­nan­dez. Both of these ladies were great dur­ing their time, but the game has changed so much from when they played. Any­way, they were both mar­veling at Caroline’s “antic­i­pa­tion.” I beg to dif­fer. Sure, she did antic­i­pate some.

From her posi­tion on the court, she knew where the ball should be hit and she headed that way! How­ever, often­times, she would wait for Li Na to strike the ball, then she leaned that way and allowed her momen­tum to carry her to the ball. No ESP required!

Use Top­spin To Keep The Ball In

The sec­ond les­son we can learn from the first set is to use top­spin. Li Na kept hit­ting “flat” on her usu­ally reli­able fore­hand. Part of this had to do with nerves, part of this had to do with Wozniacki’s con­sis­tency. Con­sis­tency is Wozniacki’s main weapon. She is a back­board!

Remem­ber this mantra, “Con­sis­tent Ten­nis Is Win­ning Ten­nis.” Li Na wasn’t play­ing con­sis­tent ten­nis in the first set. She kept going for the big fore­hand. Since she was flat­ten­ing out her shot, she missed long and wide.

The com­men­ta­tors had it right when they said she should give her­self some mar­gin when going for the side­lines and she should use more top­spin to keep the ball in. Appar­ently, Li Na must have read their thoughts. Now for the sec­ond set!

Make Small Adjust­ments But Stick With Your Game Plan

I’ll give Li Na a lot of justly deserved credit. She knows her strengths and she stuck with them. As pre­vi­ously men­tioned, one of her biggest strengths is her out­stand­ing fore­hand. Even though she was down a break and Car­o­line even served for the match, Li Na kept whack­ing away with that fore­hand.

She brought it more inside the side­lines and used more top­spin to keep the ball inside the base­line. And those balls that Car­o­line was run­ning down in the first set and the first few games of the sec­ond set? She was now run­ning out of steam.

Admit­tedly, she had played a fan­tas­tic three-setter against Francesca Schi­avone the match before. Obvi­ously, this had an effect on her legs. She even started to get wrong-footed! So much for the anticipation.

What lessons can we learn from the sec­ond set? Stick with your strengths and make micro-adjustments if your game is slightly off.

Top­spin Is Your Friend!

Use top­spin to keep the ball in. Then, as you get more com­fort­able, start going for your big shots. In the game of bas­ket­ball, when a player known for his three-point shot is miss­ing, often the player will go inside or step closer to the bas­ket just to get a shot to go in.

But he never hes­i­tates when given an oppor­tu­nity to take a wide open three-pointer. The same applies for ten­nis. If your shots are sail­ing long or into the net, use more top­spin to get them over and in. As you set­tle in, start tak­ing the big cuts when the oppor­tu­nity presents itself.

The sec­ond point to take home from this is to develop a weapon. Caroline’s weapon is her defense and con­sis­tency. How­ever, the main rea­son she has yet to win a major is because she has no huge serve or big fore­hand or crush­ing back­hand. Li Na, on the other hand, is also very con­sis­tent but she has a fore­hand that wore Car­o­line down.

As for me, I have some pop on my first serve and the last thing any of my play­ing bud­dies want to do is leave a ball short to my fore­hand. I will crush it! You should develop a shot that you can rely on, even under pres­sure, too.

Work On Your Ten­nis Fitness

The third set was sad for me to watch, since I am a Car­o­line Woz­ni­acki fan. She lost the third set as badly as Li Na lost the first set (both scores were 6 games to 3). You could see the defeat in her face towards the end. She kept fight­ing but she was com­pletely gassed.

What had been her weapon, her foot­work, now let her down. She wasn’t get­ting to balls that weren’t even that far for her to run. That is the toll heavy top­spin will put on your oppo­nent. It takes effort to lift the ball, espe­cially if it is hit out wide and the oppo­nent has to keep hit­ting it on the run. To keep this from hap­pen­ing to you, work on your ten­nis fit­ness.

As you may know, I am log­ging my work­outs so that I will be fit­ter this spring. As I have aged, I have found that I need to chal­lenge myself more and more to keep up with the rig­ors of ten­nis. What we as ten­nis play­ers over forty need to do is make sure we get a nice bal­ance of strength train­ing, joint mobil­ity train­ing, and both endurance and inter­val train­ing.

Don’t roll your eyes at me just yet! You don’t do these all at once. You train cer­tain aspects peri­od­i­cally. This is called peri­odiza­tion. One month or so you train more for strength, the next more for endurance, etc. It doesn’t have to take all your time to do, either. You will be much health­ier and a much improved ten­nis player!

Basic Algebra – Example Inside

 

This is an example homework on how to solve equation using basic algebra. Brought to us by: Calcustar.com.

Mr. Hogan hired Steve, his son to mowed their lawn. Can you compute how much Steve will earned?

We can write Steve’s Earnings as a math equation:

Steve’s Earnings = (Fixed Earnings) + (30 x Number of lawns)

Day One: Steve’s Earnings  = 50 + 30 x 0 = 50 + 0 = $50. As you know $50 is fixed part and 0 is number of lawns on day one.

Day Two: Steve’s Earnings  = 50 + 30 x 2 = 50 + 60 = $110. As he mowed 2 lawns on day 2, hence, 30 is multiplied by 2.

Day Three: Steve’s Earnings  = 50 + 30 x 5 = 50 + 150 = $200. Because Steve mowed 5 lawns on day three, so 30 is multiplied by 5.

Day Four: Steve’s Earnings  = 50 + 30 x 1 = 50 + 30 = $80. Finally, he mowed only 1 lawn on day four, hence 30 is multiplied by 1.

Analyze Steve’s earnings for all of the four days.

The earnings for all four days are not same; they are different for different days. In other words Steve’s earnings for each and every day are changing and changing quantities in mathematics are called “variables”.

Hence, we can say that Steve’s earnings can be represented by using a variable. Now, we can say that Steve’s Earnings are changing or we have another option to avoid this lengthy sentence “Steve’s earnings are changing”.

So, all the Mathematicians of the world adopt a standard to represent the variable quantities (or variables), by using letters from the alphabet. Generally the lower case letters are used to represent variables.

Hence, we can use a letter to represent the Steve’s earnings. Consider that letter is “e”. Remember that Steve’s earnings for any day is always a number in dollars and letter “e” is the common representative of earnings.

Therefore, we pick the letter “e” to represent Steve’s earning for any day he worked for his dad. Now, as you already know that Steve’s earnings (e) depend upon the number of lawns he mowed, which is again not fixed for the day. In other words, the number of lawns mowed by Steve is another variable in our example.

And we can represent it by using another lower case letter (other than “e” because two different variables need different symbols), from the alphabet. Let’s use letter “n” to represent the number of lawns mowed during a day.

Now we can write both the variables as shown below:

Steve’s earnings for a day = e

Number of lawns mowed by Steve = n

We have accomplished a great concept of algebra1, the variables. There are two variables (changing activities) in the above example. Now, recall your thinking process. There is something common happening, in terms of math operations, in the above calculations of earnings for all the four days.

To find Steve’s earnings (e), 50 is added to 30 times the number of mowed lawns by Steve.I sn’t this process is common for all of the four days? Yes, it is.

This common relationship between the earnings (e) and number of lawns mowed (n) is actually algebra1, and knowing this type of relations is, the knowledge of algebra1.

Mathematically, we can write your thinking process as given below:

Earnings for the day = 50 + 30 x Number of lawns mowed

Above is an example of algebraic relation between two variables. You know that the Steve’s earnings for the day are not fixed and are denoted by using letter “e”, also the number of lawns mowed by him are not fixed and denoted by the letter “n”.

Hence, the above algebraic relation can be rewritten using symbols (variables) for simplicity, as shown below;

e = 50 + 30 x n

Note that  we can write “30 x n” as “30n” as there is no need to show multiply sign between the number and its variable as it is understood for math purposes.

e = 50 + 30n

The above is a simple algebraic expression between two variables. And both the variables are talking about an everyday life situation.

Notes about the variables used in above algebraic expression:

1. Steve’s earning for the day: Steve’s earnings are not same each day or his daily earnings are changing or unknown until he finishes his work for the day. Any unknown or changing activity is called a variable in mathematics, so Steve’s daily earnings are variable and letter “e” is used to represent it.

2. Number of lawns mowed per day: The number of lawns mowed are not same for each day. This is the second variable and we used letter “n” to denote it.Next point to note that Steve’s earnings (e) depend upon the number of lawns mowed (n). Hence,  there is a variable depending on the other.

In other words, “n” is independent variable as it does not go up or down with earnings, actually it derives the earnings up or down. Earnings “e” are the dependent variable. Rewrite our algebraic expression again as follows:e = 50 + 30nIn above expression, letters “e” and “n” are the variables.

The fixed value 50 is called the constant term; remember that, constant terms are numbers without any variables.30, the multiplier of ‘n’ and is called the coefficient of “n”, the variables have numbers multiplied to them called coefficients.

Did you notice that the variable “e” does not have any number multiplied to it. In algebraic relations if a variable is written alone, it got the coefficient ONE. Therefore, “e” is actually “1e”.

Summary

Algebra is branch of mathematics which deals with changing or unknown activities (variables) in our daily life.Letters from the alphabet are used to represent variables.

Variables are actually used to represent numbers, but these numbers are unknown till the right time or certain conditions are met. A constant term in an algebraic relation is a fixed number.

As in the given example, Steve knows that he will get $60 per day he worked, which is a constant of the give expression. A coefficient is a number multiplying to the variable. In the given example 30 is getting multiplied by variable, “n”. Hence, 30 is coefficient of n.

The only letter (variable) in an algebraic expression, have got coefficient “ONE” which need not to be shown and is understood in mathematics. Hence the lessons on algebra1 for beginners.

Formula Feeding For your Baby

Remember your ultimate pregnancy pillow?, you can use it to nurse your baby. Mother Breast milk is and usually would be the best way to obtain nourishment for your baby; therefore, your infant needs to be breastfed at the least around six months old. At first, your baby formula was made keeping those little ones in the mind who for many factors were not able to be breastfed by their own natural mother.

Nonetheless, since the last few years, there’s been an elevated utilization of both of those breastfeeding and baby formulas in between the ages of 3 – twelve months. The composition of the formulation resembles mother’s milk however is not the identical; therefore, the WHO has suggested special breastfeeding for around the very first six months. You will find 3 basic kinds of formulas, such as ready-to-use, condensed, and powdered form.

The pre-made formula is a very handy as it merely have to be opened up and served to your baby. It’s clean and sterile; so, it is very ideal for infants born with lower birth weight or a very poor defense system. These baby formulas are little more expensive and also the containers and bottles in which these are packed are a hassle with regard to storage.

The fluid concentrate formula needs water to be blended with it based on the guidelines given on the box or package. Liquid concentrates certainly are a little cheaper compared to pre made ones however the powdered formulas are the cheapest and nature favorable. Fairly, powdered formulas harder for preparing and care must be taken that they’re made just as per recommendations. The good point is usually that these formulas have a very shelf-life of one entire month.

Additionally there is a cow’s milk-based formula, that has cow’s milk as the main component, although using an modified protein that your baby can absorb very easily. Soy based formulas are great for strict vegans as well as for babies which are sensitive to cow’s milk. However, before beginning using the soy-based formula, the baby’s family doctor should be contacted. Lactose-free supplements are particularly created for lactose-intolerant infants. If a baby carries a illness that needs very specific nourishment, he might require a formula which has exclusively been produced for the purpose.
Overfeeding or even Underfeeding

Indications that you aren’t feeding your little one enough might include persistent crying, reduced urine result, a wrinkly appearance to your skin, a dry roof in the mouth area, and higher sleep. However, signs that you could be overfeeding follows soon after feedings. This could include things like spitting up or nausea or vomiting, crying, pulling up legs to belly, and actions that look like intestinal colic. In most cases, timing feedings which means your baby has bottles that includes lesser levels of formula more often is a lot better than giving larger sums of formula more infrequently.

What is a Travel Pillow and Why You need it?

What is a Travel Pillow?

People usually prefer travel pillows at the time of long journeys to make comfortable sleep in the ride. In the market people can easily have lots of options for a travel pillow purchase. These pillows will effectively reduce the strain in the journey. Many companies came with lots of models and attractive designs. People get them from any retail store easily and it costs around 50 dollars.

The primary usage of this basic comfort ultra plush change pad cover is for neck support. In the journey people need not use the window for resting, a good travel pillow gives them a comfort support. The effective usage of travel pillow is for muscle rehabilitation. Many designs are made to meet this feature. Sometimes these may require a prescription for purchase.

Non medical pillows are available at cheaper rates where as medical pillows can be bought around 100 dollars. Generally the pillows come in two models. The U shaped mode gives support to the neck. The cost of the basic model is around twenty to thirty dollars.

The second model is oblong shape and it is more flexible. This model is changed according to the requirement of the person. The size of this kind of pillow is large and that’s the reason it costs around 60 to 70 dollars. A well rested trip can be maintained with the usage of travel pillow. It is mandatory to select the best travel pillow as per requirement.

The u shaped pillow is the traditional one and only few people prefer them. Right size pillows are selected because they should fit in your bag. In the recent days the pillows are designed to small size as the size of wallet. Some pillows are made to give people a 360 degrees support to their neck and are loosely fitted around the neck. Hence the travel pillows make your trip more enjoyable and comfortable.

Help Me With Math | Learn Math the Easy Way

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

Tools that can help you with math: graphing calculators, scientific calculators, financial calculators, books and lots of practice. Math is a fun subject! Don’t give up!

Dear Parent, A study done by the University of California indicates that children with math problems in elementary school are 13% less likely to graduate from high school and 29% less likely to attend college. It also states that early math skills are the single most consistent predictive of later academic success.

After reading this study I went out to do my own research and I interviewed a number of successful entrepreneurs, managers and business people about their early math skills and its relation to their obvious success in life.

All but one said they always had a good sense for numbers and math: some had this automatically others were taught by a great teacher or parents. Now, most of them were not great students from Kindergarden to 5th grade, some even had behavioral problems that sent them to the school psychologist. Most of them did not even enjoy going to school until a later age. Then I spoke to the headmaster of the school district for middle and high schools in my area.

He is not the kind that sits in his office but continually has been teaching students: “Students that are good in math tend to be good in all subjects, but students that are good in languages are not necessarily good in other subjects.” Hearing this from an experienced educator with 20-some years of experience really blew my mind! Now, does this spell doom over your child if it does not have solid math skills yet? Absolutely not! In those studies, it makes no difference if a child is a natural or taught in math.

We can teach your child those skills in an easy and fun way.“Jana, 4th grader“I went from a failing grade to a B after just a few hours with Gwen. A few years ago, when my son was in 3rd grade, he had to practice one row from the times tables every weekend for homework. The 2’s and 5’s were fine but the others often caused frustration and tears. I spent a lot of money on a variety of products of which none kept what it promised and books that my son hated to fill! I felt cheated and let down by the system.

I myself have never been great at math and always felt I am missing the “Indian-Math-Gene” (being of Indian descent). Until I came across the ancient Indian system of Vedic math. Within 3 days of practicing 15 minutes each day my son knew his times tables without having to memorize them, and even I knew them better than I ever did before just by practicing with him those few minutes. Within a short time, I was teaching more kids and within a few

Within a short time I was teaching more kids and within a few months, I was asked to write a book published by a famous Swiss memory trainer. 1.5 years later the book was published and was an instant success. During this time I worked with a lot of children with a diverse range of problems: I had a 3rd grader coming from the other side of the country during her school holidays, barely knowing her times tables and really low grades in school: within 3 days she calculated √1735 to the 5th decimal and had tremendous fun daring adults to beat her with her mental math feats.

I also was able to work with seriously learning-challenged children who at age 13 were learning how to add and subtract in the range 10 and 20. Within hours of learning how to use their fingers in the same way Japanese children use the Soroban Abacus, they immediately showed progress that enabled them to add and subtract up to 100. Which in turn made them able to learn the Vedic way to multiply and learn their times tables.“early math skills are the single most consistent predictive of later academic success” In the past years I was transformed from a person that never calculated anything mentally and who never went to grad school out of fear of the math part of the GMAT to being able to solve some basic calculus with pen and paper.

I wish I could find my math teacher from high school and tell her! But I never will forget how it feels not being able to grasp those math concepts. If I can learn it, anybody can! All it takes are the right strategies and tools which Vedic math provides.

Some months ago I did a teachers certification in Vedic math and it dawned onto me, that those people that are naturally good at math know those ways subconsciously, whereas others simply have to be taught and then are equally good.

Success breeds motivation and your child will have a string of successes in calculating that will motivate him or her to want to learn more. You will have to study less and have more quality time together.

Children with good math skills are often perceived as more intelligent. This, in turn, helps to build self-confidence which again helps to build success and a positive spiral is building up that will lead to academic success and a happier child.

And the good news is, those ancient ways are so much faster and easier to learn than the conventional way!“Mom of Timo, 3rd grader“Finally my son knows his times tables and he can calculate material beyond his class level without much effort!“

Many parents have reported that they have trouble studying with their own children. They tell me that it is tough staying calm and that they easily lose patience and start arguing with their children instead of studying.

Even I can get beyond my capacity of being patient when studying with my son. So I have recently launched my online “Master Multiplication Mentally” course. To get me to study with your son or daughter! It is video based on practice sheets and a final test which you can also use to assess the “before and after” skills of your child.

You will get an entire system that will teach your child how to become proficient in mental math. In most cases, your child will be able to write down the result without much calculation.

Vedic math is a system: it is flexible and works more naturally with the way our brain flows. You can calculate from left-to-right or right-to-left and you can choose from a number of different ways of how to solve the same problem.

Numbers will start to make sense and stop being an abstract thing. It won’t even interfere with the way your child learns math in school as we are teaching how to solve the same problems mentally, often with the help of a picture that is easy to remember.

However, I would like to warn you this math system might even impact you as a parent. A mom who participated in the course her children took with me, told me a few months ago: “I’ve been working for 10 years in the same company in the same job.

Now after doing your math course and working around the problems to make it easier, I did the same in my job. I realized that another way of handling my work saves the company a lot of money.
