Tennis. Psychology.

Did you know that tennis is one of the loneliest sports… πŸ˜…

The player throughout the match, and sometimes it can be more than 5 hours, is alone with his thoughts, emotions. He DOES NOT get help from the coach (only in rare cases), his opponent is 20 meters away from him. And the only person with whom the player can talk is the referee, but often this conversation happens at controversial moments, on nerves and with great negativity after such communication. 😭πŸ€ͺ

Tennis is considered such an aristocratic sport that, even for strong waving of the arms, you can get a warning (as was the case with Medvedev), and what can we say about stronger manifestations of anger, annoyance and disappointment! πŸ™πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

Emotions are trainable too and need to be trained just as much as a forehand or serve, but does anyone do it?? πŸ€ΈπŸ»β€β™€οΈ

Unfortunately, often, the athlete and the coach realize very late that the psychological component of tennis is the same reason for success or failure in the match. Always carefully consider your emotions, thoughts and actions after the game, because this “Iceberg”, although hidden from prying eyes, has great weight and foundation for success! How do you train emotions? πŸ™πŸ™ˆπŸ€—
