Anxiety vs your tennis

What routines do you use to stand clear of overwhelming nervousness and stress during your tennis practices or matches?

A Professional Tennis player and coach on the Tennis Tour in his struggles with Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder and Depression, also trying to raise a family and hang on to my other diminishing relationships, just spreading awareness about these common issues for pro athletes.

Re: Anxiety vs your tennis

Nervousness and stress? I think the large majority of people who play tennis on this forum are doing it for fun so there's no room for such things

Re: Anxiety vs your tennis

we all as an MTF group pretty much suck (unless we are criticizing top guys, which we are great at, lol) ... now, seriously, yoga can help you out a lot. you can learn how to repeat some mantras ... just google mantras ...
