Here’s the Best Tennis Tips – 2013 – The Mental Game – Zen Tennis

The Inner Game of TennisLearn these Zen like mental states known by all successful tennis players and you’ll learn to enjoy your tennis more.

Number One Zen Mental Tennis Tip is presence or concentrating on the present moment. By remaining present or in the Now, you will automatically maintain your drive and stamina on each and every point no matter what the score is.

When you play with Zen Like presence you will be in control of your external game which is the tennis racket and ball. And you will also be in control of your internal game, which is your emotions and reactions to external events, like bad line calls, or the weather, etc, etc.

Being present means having confidence in yourself to handle anything taking place on the court or in your mind. Playing Tennis in the Now means forgetting about trying to win the game.

Winning is a natural by-product of your ability to remain focused on simply hitting the ball. It’s seems nonsensical to not focus on winning, but if the mind is focusing on winning, it’s not focusing on hitting the ball.

Being present isn’t something that you can turn on and leave on. It comes and it goes. Good things happen when it’s there and unforced errors happen when it’s not.

Things can happen very quickly in tennis, one minute your up in the game leading by a couple of games and then all of a sudden your facing a match point after losing your concentration and a bunch of games in a row. What happened? The mind starting thinking about how good it was doing and lost it’s focus on what got you ahead in the game. Which was the present moment focus of simply hitting the ball.

If your focus is on the Now you will naturally be seeking enjoyment from each and every hit on the tennis ball. And if your enjoying yourself you will also naturally be focused on keeping your eye on the ball. And magical shots can happen when you keep your eye on the ball.

In singles tennis you may think that you are playing against an opponent, but that’s not the whole truth. You are actually playing 2 opponents, the one across the net and another one in your head. And it’s the one in your head which is the tougher opponent. You have to believe in yourself when you start losing your Zen like presence. Don’t start worrying about the points you’ve squandered or the score or what your wife is going to say about losing to the guy you can beat any day of the week. You simply have to refocus away from the thoughts of you, to the pure enjoyment of striking the tennis ball in this very moment.

If your only focus is on the enjoyment of this moment, which happens to include hitting a tennis ball, then good things will naturally happen. And whether you win or lose, tennis will always be a source of great enjoyment for you.

Zen tennis means playing in the now. So get out there and play like a Zen Master.
