Tennis: Winning the Mental Match
with Allen Fox, PH.D.;
former Pepperdine Head Men's Tennis Coach, 2x NCAA finalists; NCAA champion, Wimbledon quarterfinalist and a three-time member of the U.S. Davis Cup team

Tennis is more difficult mentally than most other sports. Because of its one-on-one personal nature, it feels more important than it is. Competitive matches can become highly stressful, and losing is painful. Emotions tend to get out of hand, with fears and nerves becoming difficult to control. Confidence comes and goes; the scoring system is diabolical; and everyone is at risk of choking, even the greatest players in the world. This book attacks these and other issues faced by players of all levels. Dr. Allen Fox's solutions are logical and straightforward, and most importantly, they have been tested on court and they work.

Chapters cover:

  • THE EMOTIONAL ISSUES OF COMPETITION
  • USING EMOTION TO HELP YOU WIN
  • REDUCING THE STRESS
  • GAME PLANS
  • MAINTAINING MENTAL EFFECTIVENESS IN THE HEAT OF BATTLE
  • THE PSYCHOLOGY OF DOUBLES
and much more.
