Tennis Quick Tips | Fun, Fast and Easy Tennis - No Lessons Required

This week we're talking about mental toughness.  Just what are the psychological traits of mentally tough tennis players?  Tennis is not just physically demanding, you have got to be tough out there on court. But what does that mean? What is mental toughness for tennis? Because if we don't know what it is, how can we work towards achieving it? In this episode, I'm talking about a study I recently read that not only gave a definition of mental toughness for tennis that we can all use, but discussed some of the psychological traits we need to become and stay tough out on court.

I just played for fun with a player who went on and on about how she didn't want to play with lower level players because it didn't benefit her. I mean she really went ON and ON about this. Frankly, I think this attitude is wrong. i think there are plenty of benefits to playing with lower level players. If you're not playing with players because they're beneath you or don't challenge you, I hope this podcast will convince you that there are benefits to your game that you can get from playing with these players.

Summer is here and so I am once again playing singles. Which is weird for me because i don't play a whole lot of singles. That's why i need a reminder of just what the high-percentage shots are for singles. In this episode, I'll tell you what the six most basic things are that you should be doing out on the tennis court when you're playing singles. Hopefully this will be the reminder I need to make sure I actually have a chance at winning my next singles match!
