This felt different than when she knocked off Naomi Osaka and Angelique Kerber (both of whom former #1’s AND Grand Slam Champions).
Elina Svitolina, the world #5 had never won a Grand Slam, And you could FEEL her ravenous hunger intensify throughout the match.
But Leyla took a few deep breaths and with her mother nervously watching in the stands, perfectly executed the biggest point of her life.
As Svitolina’s ball sailed long, and with tears streaming down her face, “Game. Set. Match. Ms. Fernandez” echoed through New York.
And it makes you wonder…
How does an athlete have so much composure at such a young age?
How did she become so resilient?
And what about her parents?
It’s no accident when a father-coached-kid shows up and beats three of the best players in the world.
Obviously, these players can ALL hit the ball. They’re all fit. They’re all smart.
But as champions will tell you, your skills are your entry ticket into big moments…whether that be a Grand Slam Final or a dream job interview.
THAT’S what pulls you through when the going gets tough.
And we are standing at the door of a future where those IDENTITY traits will become increasingly valuable.
With the acceleration of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and robots… MANY traditional, mechanical skills will become obsolete.
(Those jobs will be replaced with ones that have yet to be created).
THIS. WILL. ABSOLUTELY. CERTAINLY. MOST DEFINITELY. HAPPEN.
That means the people that develop and harness HUMAN skills like empathy, resilience, creativity, grit, and intuition will be the ones WINNING.
It’s why Novak Djokovic credits so much of his recent dominance to his SPIRITUAL training.
Leyla and her family clearly know this.
