One of my juniors lost a match today, and that didn’t bother me that much, what got me was the fact that he expected to lose.
He never thought he had a chance, never step out to a match, until you are ready, yes ready, take more time if you have to,but get your mind right, then go at it.
Write this down, ” If you expect to win your match, you will succeed 70% of the time or more”.
How do yo think Nadal and Novak got to where they are at, by expecting to lose.
When expecting to win, you enter a match with this mindset that will create this force field, that you can then use to turn things in your favor every time, if your opponent matches you on this, so be it, but man you are going to start dominating the level you are playing at, just adopt this powerful technique in one month.
This is one mental law, that I wish I had when I was playing, because it’s a game changer.
This is another one that we want to start doing off the court, so it will transfer on the court for us.
As tough as tennis is, we need all the help we can get while competing, adopt and adapt this into your game, focus only on the positive in your practice matches ,refuse to let mistakes get to you.
Learn to expect to win every point, every game and every match, and fight like hell to do it.
Learn from every lost, and try not to repeat it, do this with a positive attitude and you are on your way, let me tell you.
The bottom line is don’t waste your time competing if you don’t expect to win, that makes sense doesn’t it?
Your match play will never rise higher then your expectation of it.
Words to play by!
