The Challenges of a Perfectionist Tennis Player

In this week’s tennis psychology podcast, mental game of tennis expert, Dr. Patrick Cohn answers a question from Mac.

Here’s what Mac had to say about his game:

” If you are a very committed, determined, talented player following mental strategies with inclination to perfectionism but suffering with confidence and self-doubt issues, how do you manage “not to try too hard” in matches? All this causes you to tighten up and make mistakes as a result. How do you just get lost in a match game enjoying it without thinking of consequences? “

Listen to the podcast to hear what Dr. Cohn has to say about the challenges of being perfectionist during an actual game or any tennis competition and how to overcome this mindset.
