This podcast is a very important listen for people who want to understand the progression of kids to pros. This podcast features WTA player Shelby Rogers. If you don’t know the name, Shelby Nicole Rogers is an American professional tennis player. She has career-high WTA rankings of world No. 30 in singles achieved August 2022 and No. 40 in doubles, achieved February 2022, and has won six singles and two doubles titles on the ITF Women’s Circuit. She won the girls’ national championship at 17. In this interview she is speaking with Dr. Shawn Foltz-Emmons and Dr. Larry Lauer, as they share insights on how parents can improve the performance and well-being of their child in competition.
This insightful interview traces the evolution of sportsmanship, examining how it has been overshadowed by fierce competition, and exploring how we can reclaim and amplify its essential role in our tennis arena.
I hope Shelby’s story impacts you as much as it did me.
