Format: Paperback
"Use Your head in Tennis" was written decades ago in the 1950s by
one of Tennis great tennis coaches, Bob Harman. The book was so good that former American
and Wimbledon Champion Jack Kramer wrote a forward to it.
The book outlines in fairly simple terms that how you use your
mind when you play Tennis is equal to how you use your body.
That there are many strategies of thinking that can help you play your
best in that tennis match.
When it comes down to it, isn't that really what you're after?
I highly recommend that you read it if you are taking up, learning
or entering into competetive Tennis. It will definitely
improve your game, and if you win every time (nobody does) it
will confirm that you knew what you were doing when you did.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read this book years ago. And, after watching my teammates on my senior tennis team constantly getting down on themselves, I purchased one for every player. We had lots of fun discussing the content. As for myself, it reminded me that tennis is simply a game between Self #1 and Self #2, and that all I have to do to win, is try my best and use my talents to their fullest. I may lose the match, but I still walk off the court feeling like I'm a winner - since that's all I can ask of myself. A great life's lesson.
