"Playing with Fire: The Delicate Role of Emotion in Pro and Rec Tennis", by Steve Tignor, (July 02, 2020) at Tennis.com
Harnessing your emotions in tennis can raise your performance, or smooth rough patches.
Four (4) techniques to help harness emotions in tennis:
1. Prepare mentally as well as physically: Hydrate, sleep recovery, visualization and imagery
2. Focus on what you can control: Awareness, breathing, footwork
3. Welcome frustration: Channeling anger into "controlled aggression"
4. Don't give yourself time to get negative: On-court rituals, positive body language, patterns of relaxation and confidence
