Instructional Tennis / MISTAKES Can you help me?
« Last post by on Today at 05:19:21 AM »
I would like to show you an excerpt from my new e-book "MISTAKES Can you help me?". Book is available for free for all members of Tennis Island (


  We all would like to avoid mistakes and do just rights things every time. Unfortunately, I have a bad news. It is not going to happen! Everyone makes mistakes in sport as also in life. Look at Federer or Nadal. Don’t they miss balls? Don’t they make wrong tactical decisions? Of course they do.
  The problem doesn’t lay in making mistakes because what counts is the lesson that we learn from errors. Discovering an error, accepting it and analyzing the reasons of this action is the learning chain that all players should follow. Let’s say you have missed your last forehand from the baseline into the net. Discovering that miss is a first step to learn from this valuable lesson. Secondly, we have to accept that it was our fault and we are responsible for this error. I know that sometimes it is not easy to confess to making a mistake but we have to remind ourselves that it is all about our development. The last step to finish the process is to analyze the factors that have made an impact on our action. It can turn out that we missed forehand because our previous ball was too short so the lesson from this mistake will be simple: Play deep balls!
  Good thing about the missed balls or wrong tactical decisions is that we lose only one point at a time. There are much worse mistakes that we can make so avoiding them should be a priority for every athlete. Let’s imagine you have twisted your ankle recently. It is swollen and you can participate in any sport for 2 weeks until it is healed completely. This example is simple to discover because injury hurts. Accepting it shouldn’t also be a problem because swollen ankle doesn’t look right. After these 2 simple steps, the last one is the most difficult. We have to analyze why it happened. Thinking for a while can make us aware of prevention methods that we didn’t use. Lack of stretching, rarity of off-court workouts and playing with untied shoes are probable factors why we have to rest from tennis for the next weeks.
  Remember you are not “stupid” because you make mistakes but definitely you are not smart too if you don’t learn from your errors!
