Winning at any sport is the result of a variety of factors and qualities, but which one do you think contributes the most to an athlete's success?

You've posed a fantastic question Frank. There are a number of essentials for any sport but there is one that stands out among all others and without it, there is no winning.

Barring injury, most matches, games, etc in any sport are won before either player/team steps onto the court/field/etc. The most important factor is the WILL TO PREPARE!

For tennis, you can use Andre Agassi as a great example. While he was blessed with fantastic athletic talents, it was his willingness to prepare himself to win before he set foot onto the court. His record at the Australian is a great example of that. While all the other players were just ramping up and many of them coming into the tourney not quite into fighting shape, he had been on the court for weeks and even months preparing.

As I said, there are a great many factors and qualities that go into an athletes success and if you eliminate any one or two of them, you're not going to make it. But all things being equal, the man or woman who has the willingness to prepare themselves for battle will emerge victorious many more times than not. Without it, it doesn't matter much how talented or intense or athletic you are.

Great question!

Keep it between the lines!
