Don’t try to win every tennis match, instead focus on competing at a high level.
Tennis players enter matches with a bad frame of mind and that is why many of them do not play well during their matches.
Before any game, do war meditation several times on your own in a quiet place, to mentally prepare yourself for it.
Then start your training on the court and have a game plan for your opponent.
But when the game begins, adjust to how it unfolds.
Do this by competing for each point, as hard and as smart as possible.
In other words, let the game come to you !!
Your match play theme should be this,
Play each point louder and more focused than the last, then exhale and mentally prepare to play the next.
Note this in your tennis journal as well.
“The most important point is always the next point.”
See if you can imprint that on your subconscious.
We can get right to the point on this topic and talk about the real problem with most tennis players.
Which one is,
The players do not compete at a high level and do not do it regularly enough in their matches.
Well, I’m here to tell you that “tennis is all about mental and it’s all about competition”.
Sorry, but there’s no getting around that fact either.
And keep that in mind.
If you don’t make this mental shift about competing, you will never be successful in this game.
Match play is all about giving everything you have mentally on every point.
This is what the warrior competition is !!
Look at Novak.
The guy uses warrior competition in every match and on a whole new level.
And the other guys aren’t.
Oh yeah, they will use it in their matches sometimes and then they’ll either let go or choke !!
But Novak uses it nonstop in his matches.
Now you might be thinking.
How to become a tennis warrior?
By doing this.
“Consciously feel that you are becoming one on and off the pitch.”
It means acting the part 24/7, until you become the part.
Watch your matches like a movie and you are the director and the star, then play the part as best you can.
Plus, since you’re the director as well, you can replace the actor at any time!
After each game you have to ask yourself this difficult question and write down the answer you get.
“How well did I compete today?”
