Emotions

Some emotions can be very helpful and others impair your performance.

Anger, for example, can make you very tight and cause difficulty executing your strokes.

The best tennis players ever operated avoiding losing control of the situation, no matter how difficult, including their expression of emotion.

In fact, they tended to be quite serene.

Those very few who immersed themselves in negativity did not reach the God given potential they had.

A detrimental emotion can also throw you out of present time, and linger over a period of time.

Use your energies efficiently.

You may have to run fast, but be emotionally quite calm, focusing on finding the ball well and the fearless execution of your stroke.
