Let $\Bbb D$ denote the open unit disc in the complex plane. Given a holomorphic function $f$ on $\Bbb D$, define

$$N_p(f) := \sup_{0 < r < 1} \left[\frac{1}{2\pi}\int_{-\pi}^\pi \lvert f(re^{i\theta})\rvert^p\, d\theta\right]^{1/p},\quad 0 < p < \infty$$

The $p$th

__Hardy space__on $\Bbb D$ consists of all holomorphic functions $f\in \mathcal{O}(\Bbb D)$ for which $N_p(f) < \infty$. Prove the following statement:

If $f\in H^p(\Bbb D)$ and $1\le p < \infty$, then for every $z\in \Bbb D$,

$$\lvert f(z)\rvert \le \rho(z,\partial \Bbb D)^{-2/p}N_p(f)$$

where $\rho(z,\partial \Bbb D)$ is the distance from $z$ to the boundary $\partial \Bbb D$.
