Over the last 11 years of Wimbledon Men’s Singles Championships.
Just 2 men have won 8 of them.
And 2 more won the remaining 3.
Especially the 2 that won 8 titles.
Are The Elite.
I wonder who they looked to in order to get to where they are?
To become better.
To get to the top.
It will certainly include – each other.
It was probably ever so.
McEnroe envied aspects of Bjorg’s play.
Bjorg envied aspects of McEnroes.
They were what they were.
To a degree.
Because of each other.
Left and Right.
Do you do this?
Do you look left and right at the great people around you.
Or do you bury your head.
Because you don’t like them.
Because you wish they weren’t fucking there.
Because if they weren’t there, that would leave the way clear for you.
And that would be so much better, wouldn’t it?
So if you don’t look at them.
It’s easier to imagine that they never existed.
If you have aspirations to be the elite.
Then look at today’s elite.
Take a good look at those that are better than you.
In fact you can learn things from those that are currently not riding as high as you are of course.
Because in the blink of an eye.
You may be in their place.
And they may be in yours.
So look around.
(In case you were wondering.
In the last 11 men’s singles finals at Wimbledon.
Djokovic won 5.
