Letter at one tennis player

Dear tennis player,

  • Don’t insult yourself when you make a mistake and don’t cheer against yourself.
  • Always support your commitment in a positive way, even when the ball is out or you’re down.
  • Don’t yell at yourself, you’ll play worse.
  • Play joyfully, freely and make the choices you want to make.
  • Don’t criticize how others play, just to make it look like you understand tennis.
  • Support your friends in the club, make them feel your support.
  • Remember that excessive tension is harmful, even if you’re playing the Wimbledon final.
  • Have fun, use humor to reduce your fear of making a bad impression.
  • At the end of the game don’t tell yourself that you’re deeply disappointed and that you’ll stop playing.
  • Accept defeats, even those that burn the most.
  • Don’t always blame the racket, the time or the bad luck.
  • Remember that your mind is in control of technique and tactics and not viceversa.
  • Don’t show with your behaviour disrespect for others, be they companions or opponents.
  • Show them respect in all your behaviors on the court.
  • It is never the others who make you wrong.
  • It’s you who couldn’t respond to a hit or didn’t adapt to that game.
  • Don’t always make the same mistake, don’t insist on a hit that doesn’t fit.
  • When you make a mistake, do something different and change the way you play.
  • Don’t play to close games as soon as possible.
  • Take the time to build the point.
