Play to your strengths 1

Lots of good amateur players obsess about the weaknesses in their games: ‘If only I had a bigger serve/stronger forehand…’. That would be great of course but not necessarily what you should be working at. What you should be aiming for is reducing your error rate and increasing your consistency. Unforced errors are what lose tennis matches. To prove it take a look at the stats for any game. You can do this online during any grand slam match.

You don’t see the top players holding back when the pressure’s on. They just go for it. You should do the same.

Mind games

You see it often; you’ve probably experienced it yourself. You get in to a lead in a match then find yourself obsessing about the score and keeping yourself in front. You let the pressure to win get to you, and suddenly your opponent is back level. Try this: pretend that the score is reversed and that you’re losing. Tell yourself that if you win just the next few points you’ll
