I'm so excited because it’s time, once again, for Tennis Fixation Favorites! This is always one of my favorite posts to do because it gives me a chance to list some of the things that I got obsessed with or fixated on during the month. So, what did I get completely absorbed in this month? Well, at the beginning of September, I was engrossed in the U.S. Open, just like the rest of the tennis-playing world. I worked on improving my footwork (going from horrible to pretty bad in the process). And I continued on my quest to get in much better tennis shape in time for the U.S. Tennis Congress. Below is my list of links that preoccupied me this month. If you see something you’re interested in, just click on the title to be whisked over to the website, video, post, etc. So get fixated with me with my Fixation Friday list for September 2013!
