Big Questions. Short Answers.
Henri Kontinen, the 28 year-old from Helsinki, Finland is right around the peak of his career. He's been #1 in the world, and he's won the Australian Open and 19 other ATP events. I caught up with him at the Citi Open, in Washington D.C. and he couldn't stress enough how he's never worried about rankings or points. He thinks improvement is the most important thing to focus on, because you can't fake how good you are. You can win and lose matches here and there, but you can't sustain a high level without being seriously good, and that is still the mindset he has today. Hope you enjoy, and I hope you can learn to think similarly in your field.
