Description

“Tennis: Winning the Mental Match”

A new book by Allen Fox, Ph.D.

 Dr. Allen Fox earned a Ph.D. in psychology at UCLA and is a former NCAA champion, Wimbledon quarterfinalist, a three-time member of the U.S. Davis Cup team, and coached the Pepperdine University tennis team to two NCAA finals. He currently consults with tennis players on mental issues, appears in his popular 1-Minute Clinics on the Tennis Channel, and lectures world-wide on sports psychology. 
He is the author of three previous books, “IF I’M THE BETTER PLAYER, WHY CAN’T I WIN?”, “THINK TO WIN,” and “THE WINNER’S MIND, a Competitor’s Guide to Sports and Business Success.” Dr. Fox is an editor and writer for Tennis Magazine and for his web site, allenfoxtennis.net. 
Tennis is more difficult mentally than most other sports. Because of its one on one personal nature, it feels more important than it is. Competitive matches can become highly stressful, and losing is painful. Emotions tend to get out of hand, with fears and nerves becoming difficult to control. Confidence comes and goes; the scoring system is diabolical; and everyone is at risk of choking, even the greatest players in the world. This book attacks these and other issues faced by players of all levels. Dr. Allen Fox’s solutions are logical and straightforward, and most importantly, they have been tested on court and they work.

Customer Reviews

Best Mental Tennis Book

The best mental tennis book hands down. He coached Brad Gilbert in college. The real deal because he defeated Grand Slam Champions, Phd in Psychology, and can relate to the mind of a tennis player.

Excellent

This is a very complete book on the mental aspects of the game. Allen demonstrates a keen insight into the game and I highly recommend it for all players especially advanced ones.

Tennis: Winning the Mental Match

Great lessons and practical information that can be applied to not only the game of tennis, but the game of life.
