And I think that, if you perform well individually, you’ll perform well collectively.” ⠀ French midfield general Amandine Henry knows it takes a whole team to win and now, as captain of her country, she’s not afraid to lead that team. ⠀ Don’t change your dream. Change the world. #justdoit

“He’s always trying to push me because he knows I’m going to improve.” @carogarcia Sometimes your first coach is your best one. Caroline's father has guided her from her first tournament to her latest one. Challenging her and comforting her. Pushing her and patting her on the back. Celebrating and commiserating. Traditionally, elite tennis players move on. They “grow up” and work with someone else. Obviously, Caroline is anything but traditional. #justdoit

“Believe in yourself and trust that your mind and heart can break barriers.” @kipchogeeliud ⠀ It takes more than elite endurance to win a world championship.
