A day before her 19th birthday, Canadian tennis player Leylah Fernandez [3] made it to the quarterfinals of the US Open. Before watching her play today, check out this video showing part of her training the week before. There's a lot of running drills (well, sprinting), jumping over cones, practicing swings, and she also trained on different surfaces — not just on the tennis court. Even if you're not a huge tennis fan, you can still find inspiration in seeing the intensity of Fernandez's training. No wonder she made it this far!
