Ok, so you know about my little chat with the player and about his frustrations at not playing his best tennis in matches from yesterday (your best tennis in 7 days background), well today we will look at day 1 of the 7 day process of setting yourself up to play your best tennis because it’s not just a case of getting on the court and doing what you normally do or playing as much as you can and seeing what happens.
Now, as you should know I really like my players to see the “big picture” of things because this is the only way you will see big improvements over the long term.
Much of the tennis info out there is so narrowly focused on stuff like stroke mechanics that most players don’t see how everything fits together and they struggle to make the gains they should be making.
The way I have set this up for you is in a way that you can just set things up, run them & repeat the process over & over as you get better……..That’s the beauty of a good high level performance strategy, you can just rinse & repeat it because…….it just works!!
Each of the simple action steps I’ve included can be implemented in a 24 hour period and can be cycled over and over for as long as you want and remember, these are the high level strategies that will apply to YOU as much as they will apply to Federer, Nadal or Djokovic.
I use them & have used them with every level of player from junior beginner to touring Pro…….because they work!!
What you do at ground level to fill in the gaps is very much an individual thing, but remember without this high level structure your results will be limited.
———————————————————P – POLARIZE – DAY 1————————————————–
Today you start out with just one simple thing.
I want you to polarise yourself from 97% of the rest of the tennis players out there (and maybe even from some of your tennis buddies) by taking action.
You are going to get on the road to making your best tennis a reality…….Yes, you are going to………Get Started.
So many players wait until they have the “perfect” situation in place before they begin their road to improvement.
“I’m gonna lose a few pounds before I start my fitness program” or “I’m just going to have a few more lessons before I join that ladder league” etc etc.
This isn’t a train station where the trains only leave at set times…………Just Get Going!!!
The sooner you get started the sooner you will be playing the tennis you know you can play.
What have you been delaying until now?
What do you need to do that you know will have a massivively positive impact on your game?
Get started on compiling a list of the things you need to do in your game…….today, even if you are not able to get on the tennis court (another big excuse for players).
It may not be perfect (nothing is by the way) but by commiting to something & taking a step forward today will probably be the catalyst you need for big, game-changing results……..Take Action.
Tomorrow (in day 2) I will show you what to do with the list you compile today so you need to get it done.
