Peak Performance Sports – Tennis Confidence Program (2009) – Patrick J. Cohn
Are you (or your tennis players) performing up to your ability in matches? And do you bring your best and most confident game to matches?
If you want to improve mental toughness skills for tennis and perform with stable and proactive self-confidence in matches, I strongly suggest you read this entirely:
I’m mental game coach Dr. Patrick Cohn – owner of Sports Psychology for Tournament Tennis Players and Peak Performance Sports, LLC. I like to share with you powerful mental strategies to help you perform your best in tournaments – the exact same mental strategies I’ve taught to junior, collegiate, and professional athletes successfully for over 30+ years.
What’s the key to playing your best tennis? After all the practice and training is complete, you must master mental skills for tennis!
Tennis is a definitely a mental game. I often hear players complain about the these challenges when they play in matches:
- “I get so tight or tense before matches that I can’t think straight or have any rhythm in my game.”
- “I expect so much when I play that I unravel and lose confidence when the match does not go as planned.”
- “My confidence seems to disappear when I go from practice to matches and I don’t know why.”
- “I get so frustrated with hitting bad shots or with errors and it snowballs.”
- “My strokes feel so tight and controlled in matches and I can’t perform.”
- “When I’ve got a big lead, I play too defensively and allow my opponent to come back in the match.”
These tennis players suffer from…
- Fear of failure and worry about outcomes
- Playing with strict or high expectations that undermine confidence
- Inability to transfer practice confidence into “competitive confidence“
- Fragile self-confidence after missed shots or mistakes
- Poor emotional control or ability to cope with errors
- Inability to play freely and relaxed in tournaments
- And giving up a lead because of the hazards of a “comfort zone“
No matter how much you practice, if you suffer from lack of focus, low self-confidence or other mental game obstacles when you play in matches, you can’t reach your true potential in tennis or have fun.
“His Results Substantially Improved”
“AJ’s National ranking, with your help, has improved from 349 to 148. His tournament record at one point, since talking with you was 17-4, with 3 of the 4 being in third sets or tiebreakers and 2 of those matches being the same player, whom he has since beaten. Your help has definitely improved AJ’s results and his on-court demeanor has substantially improved.”
~DAWN WOODMAN, TENNIS PARENT
I want to share with you a few real-life mental game meltdowns…
“My Performance Level Drops At Critical Times”
“I often play well leading up to important points in the match, but my performance level drops, or doesn’t rise to the occasion at the critical time. It’s not choking or loss of focus, but “something else.” But I think this is a key difference between advancing to higher levels or stagnating despite having the ability to advance.”*
“I ‘Freak Out’ In Singles Matches”
“I seem to ‘freak out’ when I play singles. I get very negative and it affects the way I play. I start to get impatient and get ‘clogged’ up in my head. I tend to over think a lot and get quite frustrated with myself especially when I’m losing and making mistakes.”*
“I Have a Fear of Hitting it Out in Matches”
“I can be pretty amazing during practice, but when I play a match, everything is different. I think it is just the fear of hitting it out or something that prevents me from hitting those “amazing” shots I have during practice.”*
“I Get Tight and Can’t Finish my Stroke in Matches”
“During a match, I lose my intensity and freedom of “going for” my shots. I find myself becoming tight, and not finishing my stroke. Even though I am aware of this, I don’t know how to regain the confidence to let go and play like in practice. My timing is off, my shots don’t work, and I lose confidence in my ability.”*
“I Can’t Get Focused Soon Enough”
“When playing a match, I often fall behind in the first set. I, therefore tend to go to 3 sets. My concentration in the first set can be terrible. I sometimes finish a match and feel that I am now ready to start the match. I guess I can’t get focused early enough.”*
“Why Can’t I Win? My Coach Says I Should.”
“Everyone says my strokes look good on the practice court. My coach says I should be beating most of the people I play at tournaments, but I don’t. Why can’t I win?”*
Tennis can be frustrating at times and cause you to question all the hard work, lessons, and practice you do – especially when you lose matches you SHOULD win. But what’s crazy is that all this suffering is really unnecessary.
