Feel free to show your emotions...

a single (pair) of a male and a female,
and made you into nations and tribes,

(not that ye may despise (each other). }

Re: Is Showing emotions ..Good??

I like watching players who show lots of emotions. Of course, sometimes it can distract you from your play but also sometimes it get enlight the fire inside you that is needed to win a match that you normally wouldn't win if you continued playing uninspired shit.

Always depends on the player if it's good or bad and on the situation also I would say.

I love it when Hewitt shouts his C'MON or Nadal his VAMOS or when Kiefer's energy level is VERY high or when Waske is cheering up Haas in doubles or if Safin smashes a racket

That's part of the sport and this makes it especially interesting for me to follow certain players..... otherwise go and watch a 10 hour chess match it's also sports at a very high level, but maybe a bit more quiet

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

Re: Is Showing emotions ..Good??

A professor of an university in Switzerland appeared in a TV interview 2 years ago in a documentary probram, and he said showing emotions worsens how a match goes. He said something like,,, with showing frustration one can lose concentration on her/his play and is likely to make more mistakes, and showing an extreme happiness motivates the opponent more. Federer said also that his coach(es) had always told him to controle his emotions, and it is important. He used to show a lot of emotions, but not much anymore the last few years, and he is now No.1.

Roger, Chiudi, Stan the Man, Michi, Timea, Swiss guys and girls

good luck RF!!

Re: Is Showing emotions ..Good??

My son (almost 14 yo) plays competitive tennis. He is unable to channel his emotions in a positive way. If he is winning, he is very quiet out of respect to the other player. But if he is losing, he cannot hide it and it negatively affects his play. He found out that playing beneath his level is what drives him mad and not the other way round he is mad because he is losing so he plays bad. His coach is trying everything to teach him how to control his emotions on court or at least use them to a positive effect.

As for me, I love players showing their emotions, good or bad, screams of delight or frustration, except when it is disrespectful to their opponent. It shows they are human.

I think showing emotions on the court is good ... to an extent. No one likes to watch a robot-like player who shows no emotion. However, sometimes players go overboard, like Malisse and Nalbandian today.

I agree with you I like Hewitt/Nadal in that way, maybe it´s the football fan inside of me

Another funny thing about Nadal I´ve remembered these days with all interviews, reports and so... His uncle taught him since he was a kid to never smash a racket bc that would be disrespectful towards the people who can´t buy one

I agree. As long as your emotions do not take away your game, by all means, go ahead and give us a feast.

I absolutely love it when players show emotion on court with the fist pumps and the cries of c'mon or its equivalents in other languages

The only thing better than Hewitt's vicht, was when Blake mocked him in that AO tiebreak.

One of the best (for my taste) by Lleyton was that one when he won that 2nd set TB against Roger 7-0 in last Wimbledon, brutal stuff. Remember?

Lleyton Hewitt "Lawnmower Man"

PimPim "Vicht"

Roddick "Fist Pump"

Nadal "Jumping Tiger Woods upper-cut"

I prefer his reaction at the end of the match when he beat roger in DC semi coming back from 2 sets down

He was all over the place, jumping around doing god knows what

This is why I will always respect Nadal, similar to Hewitt he wears his heart on his sleeve especially when representing his county, we need more players of that ilk.

End of the day its what works for the individual player, some players like to keep emotions checked and it works for them
