Whether you are a tennis novice, a beginner ready for competition, a club player with an eye on the tournament trophy, or a professional stuck in a rut, Vic Braden's Mental Tennis shows you that your mind can be the single best tool to reconstruct your game. In his new breakthrough book, Vic Braden demonstrates how to improve your physical performance dramatically and develop a winning mental attitude - both on the court and off. Vic Braden is America's favorite tennis coach, recognized and respected by professionals and amateurs alike. In addition to being a licensed psychologist, he has been a major force in tennis - as a player and a teacher - since the early 1960s. In Mental Tennis, he draws upon his unique background and years of personal research - tested on thousands of his students - along with the latest technical and statistical information, and shows you how to maximize the potential of your mind to achieve peak playing skills, while boosting your confidence and enjoyment of the game. With his characteristic humor and charm, and using entertaining and instructive examples of famous players and matches, Vic Braden identifies common problems that can undermine your performance on the court, and explores their causes. He provides important psychological insights, and expert advice on how to overcome mental obstacles - such as self-doubt; lack of focus; guilt about winning; the stress that stems from a fear of losing, being humiliated, or letting down your doubles partner - and challenges you to set realistic and healthy goals for improvement. In addition to methods for long-term progress and fundamental behavior modification, Vic Braden's Mental Tennis also provides quicktriggers for immediate results; effective strategies to reverse years of bad habits; and tips on how to psych out your opponent, how to perform well under pressure, and how to maintain concentration and tune out external distractions. A final section of the book reveals Vic Braden's professional and personal analyses of the attitudes and techniques of some of the greatest modern tennis players - from Boris Becker and John McEnroe to Steffi Graf and Martina Navratilova - as well as stars from earlier eras, including Jack Kramer, Pancho Gonzales, and Rod Laver, as he guides us through their mistakes and triumphs. Vic Braden's Mental Tennis is an invaluable tool to help you think and play like a winner from the very first point in the match - with rewards that last a lifetime.

What Vic Braden (and Brad Gilbert) emphasize is the mental side of the game. The only alternative to learning from these books is learning from the tenacity and intensity of Rafa Nadal. For most of us who seek to consistently win both would be best. And lessons from a Pro', say, at the club.
Whatever is done one does have to be committed to change to improve, I'm just saying... .
This book has helped explain what's going on in my head and what I can do to either win or just plain enjoy tennis for fun. It's going to take some time to put Braden's tips to use, but his common-sense approach simple to understand and the data he uses to back it up convinces even the skeptics.
Here's one tidbit that makes sense: get back one more ball, and you'll up your game-wining percentage by 33 percent. That's an amazing number and I find myself diving for balls now that I ordinarily consider hopeless. I'm going for that 33 percent!
Recommended for all all levels of play.
Only caveat: they could update this edition. Some of the players used as examples retired years ago.
