THE ONLY SPORTS PSYCHOLOGY WORKBOOK THAT'S FLAWLESSLY DESIGNED FOR TENNIS PLAYERS TO IMPROVE THEIR PERFORMANCE ON THE COURT Players hear it all the time... "Tennis is 90% Mental, and 10% Physical" "It's All in Your Head" "The Only One that Can Stop You is You" But what exactly does that mean??? Without something concrete, it's difficult for players to understand what it specifically takes to have the correct mental approach and succeed. And rather than have a debate with someone who knows nothing about sports psychology... or read about theories and mental hacks that may or may not work off some random website...why not incorporate a detailed, interactive, and engaging workbook that'll show athletes how specific Sports Psychology concepts directly impact their performance on the tennis court? That's exactly what you've found here! Through 10 Dynamic Exercises including topics such as Motivation, Goal-Setting, Thought Suppression, Zones of Optimal Performance, Competitive Anxiety, Coming Back from Injury, Mental Imagery, Self-Talk, Confidence, and Attention...we show athletes how a lack of knowledge in the combination of these concepts creates weaknesses in their ability and negatively impacts their performance in practice and in matches, we educate them on these topics by providing definitions and real life examples they can relate to, we provide a plan as to how they can immediately implement and apply these concepts to play and perform better, and finally we engage in mental workouts through retrospective questions enabling athletes to fully grasp our powerful mental training approach. After completing our workbook athletes will undoubtedly be equipped with the Mental Tools to: 1. Develop Supreme Confidence in their Skills and Abilities 2. Build Mental Toughness and Resilience to Overcome Obstacles 3. Learn to Handle Intense Pressure and Enormous Amounts of Adversity 4. Conquer their Crippling Fears and Severe Anxiety 5. Be Mentally Ready to Compete and Dominate their Competition 6. Come Back from Injury Better and Stronger than Before 7. Be Overflowing with Motivation and Achieve their Goals Whether you're a male or female athlete looking for ways to improve your game (middle school, high school, or collegiate skill level)...A coach or trainer in search of avenues to improve your teams performance...or a parent trying to help your son or daughter accomplish their goals and dreams...THIS IS THE WORKBOOK YOU'VE BEEN SEARCHING FOR! Continuing to Choke Under Pressure During Crucial Moments of a Match, repeatedly Sitting on the Bench for long periods of time despite All your Hard Work, Becoming accustomed to Losing Set after Set, not Stepping Up when your team Needs it Most, and being Unable to see any Progress toward Improving and Reaching Success can be EXTEMELY PAINFUL, DISAPPOINTING, and DISCOURAGING. Put an END to this TODAY, Fulfill your Potential, and Finally Play as Well as you Know you Can. Available in Kindle or Paperback Edition

This aggressive interceptive psychology will shape the minds of future tennis champions. High racket-head speed can be achieved using the stretch-reflex, without big loops and swings. Weapons of a future tennis game will comprise of whip-like tennis serves and ground strokes, based on the stretch–reflex, and using the whole body in a fluid and integrated manner, thus manifesting a superb combination of speed and strength.

This is the first book to call for a major paradigm shift in applied sport psychology by providing a wealth of systematic, scientifically validated research in a field where assessment and treatment has often been haphazard. In his quest to bring sport psychology to a higher level of validity, Dr. Carlstedt describes the most current assessment methods, intervention procedures, and promising research that are critical for use in evidence-based practice. These assessment and treatment methods are based on 25 years of rigorous scientific approaches and principles that incorporate the most sophisticated research methods now available. The book describes the mechanisms that influence peak performance or psychological performance deficits and the mental training process, and provides procedures that will take the guesswork out of typical assessment and mental training. It offers tools with which practitioners can reexamine their modus operandi and critically explore the mechanism of interaction outcomes. To this end, the book includes extensive data sets on personality, behavioral tendencies, mind-body responses, and performance outcome. Dr. Carlstedt advocates moving beyond compartmentalized therapeutic sessions in the office to directly observe athletic performance during training and actual competition. The text also contains individual and team case studies to enhance its focus on individualized, efficacy-tested protocols for each individual athlete. Key Features: Presents a detailed client-centered assessment and intervention model grounded in technology-supported, step-by-step procedures, followed by efficacy testing Focuses on the importance of empirical scrutiny and individualized, efficacy-tested protocols for each individual athlete Describes the Carlstedt Protocol containing a visualization efficiency test among many other technologically based assessment and training tools Provides a roadmap for achieving a gold-standard system of accountability Practitioners will learn how to work within Carlstedt's integrative model to improve athlete performance and contribute to the advancement of evidence-based applied sport psychology.

Tennis smashed onto the worldwide athletic scene soon after its modern rules and equipment were introduced in nineteenth-century England. Exciting, competitive, and uniquely accessible to people of all ages and talent levels, tennis continues to enjoy popularity, both as a recreational activity and a spectator sport. Life imitates sport in Tennis and Philosophy. Editor David Baggett approaches tennis not only as a game but also as a surprisingly rich resource for philosophical analysis. He assembles a team of champion scholars, including David Foster Wallace, Robert R. Clewis, David Detmer, Mark Huston, Tommy Valentini, Neil Delaney, and Kevin Kinghorn, to consider numerous philosophical issues within the sport. Profiles of tennis greats such as John McEnroe, Roger Federer, the Williams sisters, and Arthur Ashe are paired with pertinent topics, from the ethics of rage to the role of rivalry. Whether entertaining metaphysical arguments or examining the nature of beauty, these essays promise insightful discussion of one of the world's most popular sports.
