#CelebrityBTR– “Tennis means a huge amount to me. I dreamt of being a pro and could have been good but life and injury conspired against me. It gives me more reason to be inspired by those who dedicate their life to follow their tennis passion and make it on to the tour, at whatever level. I am moved, inspired, excited and challenged when I watch tennis players. The mental resilience to be out there alone, the pressure at the top and the struggle at the bottom are extreme. Certain matches and players have had a big impact on my life in gathering courage, believing in myself, staying in the moment, keeping fit or to just be full of deep joy watching the sheer skill on display. There are many reasons but I think principally, because it’s a sport that is a battle of the individual, it’s paradoxically uniting. You feel empathy for players as you know how emotionally tough it must be, as well as physically. You empathise because every one of us has felt pressure, exhaustion, aloneness and stress, whatever our circumstances. We all struggle. Tennis players have to deal with so much, whether we recognise it consciously or not during a match. These are the many reasons for me to admire this unique gladiatorial sport and why I am slowly taking up tennis again via @touchtennis and every reason for me to support Behind The Racquet. The more we share the reality behind the sheen, the more connected we can be as a community, the stronger we can be as individuals. It’s the open and honest community, without posturing and pretending, that keeps us healthy.” @realmirandahart
