Explaining Tennis Psychology
When talking about sports psychology for tennis players, I am referring to your so-called mental game or inner game of tennis.
What is the mental game of inner game of tennis?
Simply, how you think and react emotionally on the tennis court. I’m sure you have heard the concept about mental preparation?

- Cope with special situations such as comfort zones or sitting on a lead
Who is tennis psychology for?
Tennis psychology or mental training for tennis can help any tournament play perform up to his potential in matches – from juniors to professional players. I also help tennis parents instill confidence and success in their kids.
What does a tennis psychology expert do with players?
I evaluate your mental game using a mental game assessment and I devise a plan to help your improve your weaknesses just like an instructor would help you improve your weaker strokes.

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
