Sports Psychology: Dr. J. Granat’s Weekly Tennis Tip

Replace Criticism With Curiosity 

     Berating yourself and putting yourself down will not help you to play in the zone.   Replace your tendency to criticize yourself with a smart question: 

What did you just learn from your last shot or from 

the last point?   

      This wise question will keep you thinking in a smart and useful way and keep you on top of your game.
