Daniel Caverzaschi was born on July 11, 1993, with a malformation in his right leg. He is a role model. A national and world reference in the world of tennis. His ability has allowed him to achieve personal and sports success.
In the Emilio Sanchez Academy, we are fortunate to have him as a part of our academy, a part of our identity, a player who is next to us. We are lucky to see him improve every day, and we consider him an example for young people to follow. On Wednesday, June 15th we had the opportunity to listen to him, he talked in front of families and ES students who were graduating from the senior class of 2022. Daniel told us his story, making it a story full of motivation and overcoming daily challenges.
What is success? Winning? Qualifying for Roland Garros and Wimbledon? Or get to write inspiring stories that reach people through tennis? For me, Fernanda does this last thing. Fernanda Contreras is a story of tennis, which motivates, and that, above all, marks the difference between the common; She is special, her way of listening, looking, speaking, playing, and her way of surrendering does not leave unnoticed anyone and, when she is on the court she becomes someone else.
There are no words to describe Rafa’s feat. It’s my 14th article talking about him in Paris, and I’m running out of adjectives. After explaining the keys to his technical evolution, I now prefer to highlight the key reading and adaptation attributes of his transformation.
In recent years, Rafa has made a constant evolution of his game. He was already an excellent player on the defense side. From an early age, he managed to enter the counter-attack zone and even be offensive with his forehand, but always with the premise that, once he had control of the court, he had to maintain that position and dominate without giving breath to the opponent always with the idea of not failing or even defending, again and again, or whatever it took
Tournaments are an amazing opportunity for tennis players to develop their ability to compete against other players. They serve to develop players in their mental and physical aspects, athletes gain experience through play. It is clear that tennis has many benefits, in addition to promoting good habits and achieving better health for people, tennis allows for the development of values that are internalized and grow in each human being and each athlete. For these reasons, the Academy decides to organize competitive tournaments for athletes to build their competitive character and achieve new skills.
Federer’s technique, Murray’s tactics, Djokovic’s physique, Nadal’s mind: the Spanish talent seems a synthesis of the Fab Four, and he can still improve a lot.
Why is so important for us to build character?
According to Google, the character is defined as “the mental and moral qualities distinctive to an individual.” So why on an individual? In our academy, we are a small family who together can bring up the best in each other. Each student is different and, each athlete is different. Some athletes have better forehands, some have a better mindset and some have an overall better game but, our purpose is to bring each individual talent to rise, and work on each skill that the athlete has to make it better. Sometimes it takes sacrifices from the athletes to perform at their highest each and every day but, as the saying, hard work pays off.
Today is world tennis day, our student-athletes will celebrate it playing tennis. They do celebrate it every day playing tennis.
They play tennis every day and enjoy the sport like the first day. It is funny that is worlds tennis day because for most of our athlete tennis is their world. They have so much love for the sport that they decide to come here for the whole year to dedicate themselves to this sport. Our athletes play between 3-4 hours a day.
