      I like to have players tell me what their plan A and plan B are. I find this makes them think about ecah opponent differently and it helps.

    Thanks a lot for this Coach Jorge. This gonna help one of my player that’s always complain on every single shorts that she plays. But I keep telling her that she good and she play great, but she complain every time.she hit frame or the ball doesn’t go to the direction she wanted.

    I will be looking forward for the rest videos about this topic.

    I totally agree not to say bad, but I say oh I need to bend more it was a low ball or get it sooner. Just like in life negativity does you no good. Don’t beat yourself up. Play with fun and to improve and you will improve.
    Thank you.

    I love this! Thank you. It also makes me feel more “in control of my game” not flipping about “come what may”. Errors happen – and can be worked on to adjust. That’s how I try to practice. Great mindset. Thank you. Can’t wait to take this onto the court in my next MATCH!

    The ability to move on to the next point is pretty crucial. Nice tip Jorge, I tell my students like sand on the beach. Relatively just another piece of data.

    Mentally, high school players are not at their peak as they are still maturing. I can’t count how many times I have watched a player lose a game or match because they have made an error and disintegrated mentally. Any method by which we, as coaches, can employ to provide a small advantage to our players in their on-court battles can only be a positive step.

    right, very good; treat it as data. Don’t abuse yourself, tell yourself: “what happened? how did that happen? how to correct?

    Hi Jorge

    That’s a useful tip.

    A lot of my players tell me they get really tight on key points….break points, game points, set points etc..,,points that really matter. They all seem to change their perspective of what’s happening and basically end up trying too hard!

    And then they get emotional about it and then their game suffers.

    Do you have any advice for mental toughness on key points ?

    This is such a timely video for my high school singles player who was mentally destroyed during her last match of the season due to her critical self judgements of her shots . This video will bring some credence to her immediate need of working on her mental game. THANK YOU!!

    Good point. When I miss a shot, I try to analyse exactly why, and to figure out the adjustments necessary so I don’t repeat the same error.

    I encourage my high school players to do the same, but this is definitely a higher level skill.
