    Great information. Makes sense to show your kid that you are calm during difficult and stressful moments of a match. Please keep the videos coming. Thanks!

    Dear sir this is amazing video to educate ourselves to become smart tennis parents. In fact this first video to teach parents instead coach hard to kids. Definitely this is eye opener for me as a tennis parents. I love your last two points did you represent family and I love to watch you play. Many thanks.

    Brill thanks I coach a junior soccer team and stay calm for them but I get so nervous when watching my son play tennis I think because he’s out there on his own with no team mates – I need to stay uber cool for him!

    This was probably the most important video for parents to watch as tennis parents. I am a USPTA Teaching Pro of kids 11-18 and I will be sending all of my parents this video. What a gift! Thank you Jorge.

    My 10 year old prefers that I not watch. When I ask if him if I may watch he says he doesn’t care or that I may do as I please but since last year he had openly asked that I not watch I no longer do. I am unhappy about this but I cannot force him to want me watch his matches. Should I just go ahead and watch anyway and tell him to treat me like any other person outside the court and just deal with it or honour his wishes?

      It depends… I would like to find out why he changed his mind. It could be that you inadvertently added pressure to him by your sideline demeanor or maybe he just does not want to disappoint you. I have the same thing as a coach with certain players that would rather me not watch them play. In my case I tell them that I must be allowed to watch them or I can not be the coach. I would lean towards letting you watch because you are the parent and you pay the bills. This is not an unreasonable request to make of him.

        Great video Jorge. Two parents of kids I coached had a different take on watching their kids. One mom (who played college tennis) used to bring a book to every match. She would keep the book open and watch her son play the point. Then, when the point was over she would immediately look down and read. Her son would miss an easy shot and look over to see if his mom saw. Alas, she was reading….

        The other story is a dad that was a college basketball player. He used to be famous for hiding. His son was #1 on the high school team I coached. It became a game to find the dad (Joel). His son might play a whole match an not know what tree he was standing behind. Same theme as above. They were parents that “got it”.

        Keep up the great stuff Jorge!
