About this item
Concentrates upon overcoming mental attitudes that adversely affect tennis performance, including learning to relax, effectively concentrating, and discarding bad habits
When I'm practicing, I play well, but when I get into a match, I fall apart".
"I know exactly what I'm doing wrong on my forehand, but I can't break the habit".
The Inner Game of Tennis is a revolutionary program for overcoming these common complaints, and the self-doubt, nervousness, and lapses of concentration that can keep a player from winning.
Tim Gallwey separates the player into two selves: "Self One" criticizes and instructs, while "Self Two" actually hits the ball. The Inner Game of Tennis offers tips on keeping Self One occupied -- observing each stroke rather than judging it -- so Self Two, programmed by feeling rather than words, can be trusted to do what it knows best.
Here are ideas for observing each stroke, from volley to backhand, tips on concentration, and valuable ideas about trying too hard and the difference between playing for fun and playing to win. Now revised and updated, this paperback edition can change the way the game is played.
