What are our mental coaching students saying?
“Maggie had such a great weekend. As always, after she works with you she just seems more grounded and focused. She’s less likely to look around and get distracted during her match. She’s more focused on one point at a time. Also, as a parent, I’ve learned to encourage her process goals and not outcomes. Consequently, she played well and won her first doubles match, upsetting a seeded team in a really really close match!”
~Katherine Johnson Cannata, Maggie’s mother
I’ve been strugling for such a long time with my self confidence. I’m tired of being too worried about my technique. Many trainers have told me that my strokes are just perfect and ther is nothing wrong with them. But when it comes to playing matches strokes crumble. I now it’s a mental thing but I just do not know how to deal with all this. Do I need to play more matches? Can I put my trust in the fact that I need to learn how to deal with losses before I can enjoy the wins?
I meen, Í have won some very exciting matches of players who were much better than me. but also I’ve lost some really embarrising matches by very poor play. These matches I still do remember. I’ve been beating myself up for such a long time.
I really love this game so much. I’m 44 now and stll do play on a considerable level. I want to improve my game, win and enjoy more. Thank you
You probably need to work less on stroke and play more practice matches. This is an issue of trust for sure – or lack of trust in what you have practiced. Confidence feeds your trust in matches. A breakdown in one can lead to problems in the other.
