Advice to juniors: Find a good coach if you want to get better. Don’t be afraid to sign up for events you’ll be killed in, Seeing the higher levels gives you a vision of where your game needs to go if you want to keep improving. Never give up or think your outclassed, moments when you feel you have nothing left are the times you come up with something new or find out there is more in the tank that you didn’t know was there.
