The mental game
The 1974 state high school tennis
championship was held that fall in Chapel
Hill, where a pair ofjuniors from Grimsley
High School in Greensboro entered the
doubles final with high hopes and soon
were backed into a corner.
Ann Martinelli and Beverly Sizemore
had lost the first set in the best-of-three
match and were in deep trouble late in the
And that, says their old coach, Linda
Tamblyn, was where they drew the line.
"They were down match point in the
second set," she remembers, "and didn't
lose another game.
"You could just see that they had made
their minds up that they were going to do

And they did it again the following

Ann one of the finest tennis players and
all-around students she ever coached -
valedictorian, most outstanding female ath-
lete, winner of a Morehead Scholarship -
says it was not her natural talent, impressive
as it was, that made the difference on the

than her physical game."
Livermore has been winning a lot of
points since that critical August day in
2004. HP's share price, which hit a three-

"By far the most inlpressive improve-
ment in profits and growth has been in her
businesses," Burrows says. "I think that she's
surprising a lot of people."
And last July, Livermore finally got her
new kidney. Compared to running the War
Room, this was the easy part. She was the
customer, and it was her surgeons' turn to
come through, which they did.
"I came out of that surgery having
experienced, certainly, some of the miracles
of medicine. It was fabulous from that per-
