US Southern California Summer Tour 2011 Day 11 - 22

Day 11 Winston played some of his best tennis today. He was able to successfully control the match by using his big forehand. His forehand was the base of his victory today and he used it very effectively from the baseline. Having said that Winston needs to improve his game toughness because some games he played solid tennis and some game he played exactly the opposite (many easy mistakes). He fought hard today and pumped his fist high a few times. Great fighting spirit and will to win.
