How many times have you heard a sports announcer say something like, "he's in the zone", "she's playing out of her head", "he's unconscious!" We play our best when we turn off the part of our brain that worries about the future or dwells on the failures of the past. Even if it's the failures of the past 10 minutes.

While running is an essential part of tennis, players use mostly smaller, not bigger steps. Keeping a tennis ball in play requires short sprints. A player must be able to make many quick adjustments and changes in direction. In tennis, it's more typical to refer to this as footwork, not merely running. Read more >
We've seen that a player's mental strength is significantly affected by their levels of confidence. Players tend to go through phases. Top players have their moments where they can be incredibly on the ball, but might go through particular phases where they are lacking in confidence.  Read more >

If you are looking to add a bit of friendly sabotage to your tennis opponent’s game, consider popping a few of his tennis balls in the freezer beforehand.
