Today I spoke with Dan Waldman, a world champion tennis player. Dan, who is 60 years old, regularly competes on the ITF Senior Circuit in national and international tennis tournaments, and has won several of them. Despite working as an attorney at Arnold and Porter, Dan is also dedicated to his tennis and his training. This is why he continues to tear it up on the Senior Circuit.
Dan talked to me about his training and tennis playing frequency, the importance of stretching, his diet, his experiences playing tennis for Harvard University alongside current Harvard Tennis Coach Dave Fish, and playing professional tournaments.
I know this interview will help a lot of you, especially those in your 50s and beyond. I have received many emails and comments about how to successfully compete as you get older. Dan, a world champion singles and doubles player, shows us what it takes to be the best no matter what your age is!
On this episode, you will learn:
- The mindset required to keep improving your game
- The keys to coming back from injury
- How to keep your body in optimal condition
- How you can keep playing singles in your 60s
- Dan’s morning routine
- Why playing in the morning before work can benefit your game
- The age that players lose a step, and how to minimize it
- The biggest changes in tennis from the 70s to today
I really appreciate you tuning in to this episode, and I hope that you learn a ton from all the valuable information that Dan provided us.
