His insights ring true and they are clear, employable and even necessary for being a healthy happy human tennis playing person (and I would think especially necessary for the junior and pro level players to keep a healthy perspective). Often mental tennis advice makes sense (just think positive) but falls far short of being realistically helpful (positive thinking usually doesn't help muscles from getting tense in a close match). But Greenwald has done a superior job of organizing, articulating and delving into the heart of the issue/s that can leave every tennis player from playing their best tennis.
Already using some of the simple techniques to improve my game. Breath control, focus on the next point, not serving until ones's arm is relaxed, utilizing the time between points and games constructively, and letting errors go.
Refocusing after recognizing that an external or internal "should", or desired outcome, or "critic" has come into mind, and getting back to one's own "half of the court/ living in the moment".
Lot more fun to hit freely and not let one's mind get in the way.
I especially like the idea Jeff recommends to go back and review a chapter before going out to practice. Emphasis that real change takes dedication, patience and time is key.
Great bibliography. Inner game and winning ugly my favorites. Bravo Jeff.
