    "I am a competitive junior tennis player. Recently, I’ve been having a lot of trouble bringing what I practice to tournaments. I’m playing a lot of tennis and my improvement shows in practice matches. Do you have any strategies that will help me perform more freely in tournaments?"

    First you need to identify what’s changing for you from practice to tournaments.

    Often, it is about fear of failure.

    If you aren’t playing freely, you are playing tight and controlled.

    How can you overcome fear of failure to play more freely?

    Listen to this month's tennis psychology podcast to learn what mental game tips Dr. Cohn gives to tennis players to bring their practice game to matches and play more freely.

    Helping Tennis Players Who Get Frustrated and Tank

    In this week's tennis psychology podcast, mental game of tennis expert, Dr. Patrick Cohn discusses:

    How can you help your young tennis player stay composed on the tennis court?

    Suzy wrote in and said:

    “My 10 year old son plays tennis four times a week at his club. However, when he’s in a tournament, a bad shot, tough opponent and a double fault will literally have him crying his way through the match.He shouts at himself and his negativity is unbearable to watch as a parent. I need help, I don’t know how to help him anymore.”

    This is the #1 complaint that we get from sports parents about how kids tend to act out, check out, tank, get emotionally upset and frustrated and then their performance snowballs out of control because they can’t regain emotional control.

    One of the worst things you can do as a parent is bring attention to their frustration and punish them for it.

    Why?

    They only learn that the behavior is wrong but not the skills to improve that behavior.

    What can you do as a sports parent to give them the skills to stay composed?

    Listen to this month's tennis psychology podcast to learn what mental game tips Dr. Cohn gives to sports parents to help their young athletes deal with their frustration.
