  1. You made some good points here and the best one was about how you can prove the importance of the mental game by watching pro players.

    It’s interesting since you can identify so many mental game errors that either are caused by or are influenced by unforced errors.
    Each player’s mental state and toughness is often the deciding factor in pro matches. Especially whenever there is a close match. (great example was S. Williams and Kuznetsova in the Semi.)

    Another main problem with trying to teach players the mental game is simply the fact that it is catagorized as “training”. Most players do not find this as “fun” as rallying for the baseline or playing matches. That is probably the reason why many juniors do not want to partake in it.

    The problem with trying to get a student or child in the mental game is that although you can present them with reasons why they should do it, it’s ultimately their decision. It’s difficult to force children to do activities that they do not find “fun” or want to do.

    The best approach would be to attempt to make all aspects especially “mental training” be fun. That is one of the most important aspects of instructing tennis.
