Chanda Rubin was commentating tonight on the Naomi Osaka match vs. Alize Cornet of France.
Osaka was hitting on all cylinders and streaked to a 5-2 lead in the first set.
Rubin said that she was really ‘plugged in’ from the start and it was quite a sight to behold.
I wonder what being plugged in is like for a club player or junior who can’t serve 120 mph or hit blistering ground strokes to the corners?
Maybe it’s a commitment to a one more ball mentality and competing for every point like it’s a set or match point.
How do you know when you’re plugged in during a match?
