Questions and Answers

Donovan Tennis Strategies (DTS): Describe your tennis schedule?

Delaware sophomore Amanda Halstrom
courtesy, Delaware athletics
Amanda Halstrom (AH): We usually practice five days a week for two hours each day, and practices are pretty intense. Generally we have matches two days a week. On heavy match weeks the coach usually gives us time off. We have lifting three days a week for an hour each day. The schedule is not set in stone and changes depending on our matches in a given week.
 

DTS: Has your game developed while playing college tennis?

AH: Absolutely. I have to thank my coach for that. She zeroed in right away on my strengths and weaknesses and her coaching has brought my game up to a different level. I also think that the practices and physical training have made a big difference in my game.
