The excerpt below is taken from the article written by Level A* GPTCA Robert Davis which appeared in Elite Tennis Journal (December 2015).
You can hear Yen-Hsun Lu of Taiwan practicing before you actually see him play. Sharp bursts of air shoot from his mouth when he grunts and the screeching of his shoes as his feet churn in a frenzy of footwork. Now, Lu is thirty-two years old and he is in Hua Hin, Thailand, for an ATP Challenger and it is his last tournament of the year. But you would not know it by watching him train. Lu won his first round match 6-1, 6-1. You might think that would make him happy and he would go home early. But not Yen-Hsun Lu. As soon he shook hands with his opponent and the umpire he marched straight to the practice courts with his coach and team and practiced with Christopher Rungkat for 30 minutes.
“I missed too many forehands today,” Lu told me afterwards. “The court plays fast and my timing was not good on the change of direction.”
