Tennis Tips: What Percentage Of Tennis Is Mental?

Jay P. Granat, Ph.D.

Psychotherapist, Author, Founder,


Once you master the physical and mechanical parts of the game, the mental part of competitive sports becomes increasingly more important.

Understanding strategy and knowing how to stay relaxed, confident and focused under pressure are essential skills for the top tennis players in the world.

Players must also learn how to manage travel, peaks and valleys, injuries, tough losses and periodic setbacks.

Having coached top athletes from virtually every sport from around the world, I can tell you that the great ones are almost always confident and resilient.

I am delighted to be able to help tennis players who are trying to reach the peak of the tennis world and I am thrilled to be associated with  Harry Brown, the founder of this organization, is committed to helping players  so that they can succeed and advance their careers.

I look forward to helping players to manage the stress of being on the tour, handling distractions and managing interpersonal relations with coaches, agents, parents, spouses and the media.
