I couldn't agree more. If you are fit and well age is nothing. If you're not in good health any age is difficult.
Very true teejay.


That's because physical reality doesn't exist as it's only an illusion and a persistent one as Einstein would tell you. But anyway, I was basically coming from something much deeper but yeah, in this persistent reality, it does make you feel that way, as if this is all there’s to it and that if your physical body gets old, you get old too (though some would insist that they never feel old no matter how old they are physically and they'd be right too. Wait until you get old..lolol). You die, your whole self dies too etc.
I'm not sure what you're trying to say, but I'd love to be around if and when you hit 70!  Also saying that there's nothing physical involved - of course there is.  Look at the biological changes, especially in women, for a start.

Thanks for posting the Bahrami video.  I love that man.  He's simply amazing. Smile

I guess what I am talking about is the reality beyond this one which I see as the real one and one's real age based on that, but seriously, as long as you are here, that’s your reality and that’s your age.

As to me turning 70, I am sure I’ll be fine with that. I accept things as they are. I’ve noticed that the more you resist about anything basically, the more it becomes very problematic for you. Personally, I don’t think I’d live to see 70 though!


Bahrami used to be a ball boy first and used to watch all the great players including the Iranians ones. Very cute stuff!

I didn't know he had one. I'll definitely be looking for that.

Well you never know!  I don't see any point in trying to resist the ageing process.  It happens, so accept it.  Having a sense of humour does help though!

Not just the aging process but everything else. As to sense of humour, I think I am covered! I'll probably crack a joke even in my deathbed. As once a wise person said, "Never take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive."

Bahrami is fantastic for his age.  I am hoping to be full of energy when I get my new hips but unlike my friend's uncle I do not think I shall be playing tennis but hopefully I will feel 68 (which I am) instead of about 100.

Yes, I found it on Amazon. I'll get it next week when I'll be able to read it on my kindle in peace. No chance of that until Sunday.

Saw Lendl at the player's entrance of the O2.  Tried twice to get a picture and twice he blanked me.

Observations Of Andy Murray’s Coach Ivan Lendl

By Cliff Richey

Cliff Richey is the former No. 1 ranked US player, US Open and French Open semifinalist and hero of the championship-winning 1970 US Davis Cup team. He is the author of the harrowing and inspiring book “Acing Depression: A Tennis Champion’s Toughest Match” available at www.CliffRicheyBook.com
 

I really enjoyed watching Andy Murray win the US Open earlier this year. Like so many, I thought he was due finally break through and win a major singles title. Murray is such a talented guy and it’s a very tough era to be successful. I think there was a bit of added pressure for Murray because of a few losing efforts in Grand Slam finals.

So did his coach Ivan Lendl make the difference? I think he did. I never knew Ivan during our tennis playing days. Ivan came onto the tour the year I retired. I only saw Lendl play once and that was during the 1978 French Open. For the next thirteen years he had one of the greatest careers of all time. One unreal stat — eight straight US Open finals. Ivan won every major except Wimbledon and he joked that he was allergic to grass.

I met Ivan on the celebrity golf tour. We played practice rounds and tournaments together. Probably the only guy to practice as much as me was Ivan. He left no stone unturned. I remember he brought his swing coach to several of our events. In Dallas in 1997 at one of our tour stops, I saw Ivan on the driving range in the morning. He played a lot of practice holes that day and finished his workout with sand bunker shots. I said “Ivan, if you keep this up, you’ll burn out!” He looked at me with an intense gaze and said “No, I get better” and he did.

A few years later on a tough course, the Atlantic City Country Club, Ivan shot 70-69 to win the tour event. Our events were real golf. No handicaps, put them all out and fourteen clubs. Lendl would go to the club manufacturers and get exactly fitted. He studied which golf ball best suited his game. He would chart every tournament course.

Ivan Lendl left nothing to chance that he could control and he is a class guy. I asked him for some signed tennis gear for my charity golf event one year — no problem. And the next year he called me and wanted to know if I needed more. I also have had a couple of tennis days with Ivan. At a charity golf event for the Wounded Warriors at Camp LaJeune one year we did a tennis clinic for the troops’ families. Once again, he was a true pro. He showed up earlier than most of the clinic participants. Ivan asked if I wanted to hit a few. 

Exchanging groundstrokes with one of the all time greats was pure fun. I asked him to tell me what he felt his strengths were in his tennis game. It was a fairly simple answer but I think an instructive one: be physically fitter than any other player. Do maximum damage with the forehand on any short ball opportunity.

Do you think Andy Murray looked pretty fresh at the end of his five-set US Open final?  Was he more aggressive with his shots when the opportunity?

Ivan has to be proud of Andy Murray for winning the US Open and leaving no stone unturned. After all he hired Ivan Lendl!

Ivan Lendl sees himself coaching the rest of Andy Murray's career

Ivan Lendl says he sees himself coaching US Open champion Andy Murray for the rest of the Scot's career.

Murray appointed eight-time Grand Slam winner Lendl as his coach in December 2011, and has since reached the Wimbledon final and won the US Open.

"As long as it works for both of us, yes [I can see myself being with him for the rest of his career]," Lendl told BBC World Service.

The 52-year-old also revealed he intends to improve Murray's tennis.

"I have a lot of plans where I would like to see Andy end up with his game," said
Lendl, who helped the 25-year-old become Britain's first male Grand Slam singles champion in 76 years with victory in the US Open in September.

But despite Murray's success, the 52-year-old Czech-born coach says the player is only at 20% of where he wants him to be, though he refuses to set a particular target in terms of Grand Slam victories.

"I think [he can achieve] a lot more. I'm not going to say number of Grand Slams, I'm just going to say where Andy is now," he said.

"I take 'point A' - when we started working - now he's at 'point B', and when I envisage I would say he's about 20% there."

Murray has enjoyed his best year of tennis under Lendl - winning the US Open, an Olympic gold medal, an Olympic silver medal and reaching the final, semi-final and quarter-final of Wimbledon, the Australian Open and the French Open , respectively.

His Olympic gold medal came with a victory over Roger Federer at Wimbledon, just a month after losing the Wimbledon final at the same venue to the same opponent.

It sparked fresh debate over whether Murray could become the first male British singles Wimbledon winner since Fred Perry in 1936.

"I think that [if Andy's career will be judged on whether he wins Wimbledon] is an inappropriate question because I think everybody knows he can," said Lendl.

"The question is 'is he going to win Wimbledon?' and know he will give it a good crack many, many times - not just once, not just in 2013 or 2014. He has quite a few years left in him and he's going to give it a crack."

However, Lendl believes nothing is guaranteed with regards to success on home turf.

"As you know in sport, you cannot predict, you can only anticipate - both Andy and I would be disappointed if at the end of the day he does not win," said Lendl.

"But it's also a possibility that he may win more than one, and he may not win any.

"I don't know, I don't know the answer to that, but he can."
