Do you feel nervous before matches and are under a lot of pressure to the point where you don't want to play the game anymore?
In this week's tennis psychology podcast, mental game of tennis expert, Dr. Patrick Cohn answers a question from Dwayne who's questioning whether he should continue to play tennis.
Here's what Dwayne had to say about his game:
"My problem is that I hate that nervous feeling before going into a match and all the pressure of wanting to be good enough to showcase what I've practiced for months. I hate the feeling, I'm even thinking about quitting the game. I do try to focus on the game itself but that feeling of being nervous really gets to me at my core. What should I do? Should I just quit the game?"
Listen to the podcast to hear what Dr. Cohn suggests to do overcome nerves before going into a match.
