How was the last game you played?
“I played tennis yesterday with my 14-year-old sister, Brianna. It was a pretty good game, and I beat her.”
Do you warm up before playing?
“I always warm up. I work with armbands, and I jump rope.”
What do you eat before playing a game?
“I always eat pasta and chicken.”
What was your best shot in the game with your sister?
“It was my forehand. That is definitely my best shot in any game.”
Any slip-ups in the game?

Will you do anything differently the next time you play?
