    There are three aspects to every tennis racquet. The grip, the frame, and the strings. Just like these three parts make up a whole racquet, these three correspond to three major aspects of my life. The grip is the base that supports the rest of the racquet and allows it to work properly, the frame is the personality of the racquet and dictates how the racquet will behave, the strings are where all the action happens on the racquet.

    Tennis, an engaging interest I have had since middle school, is not something in which I have always had a passion. Playing the sport was not a priority until I was infected with the mono virus in the summer of fifth grade, causing me to miss basketball and football tryouts.
