Tennis Tips for Overcoming the Choking Reflex

When it comes to the Sport of Kings, headcases rarely take home the trophy. Find out how to battle those negative thoughts and turn from a choker to a winner.

Here's a scenario chokers (and you know who you are) are all too familiar with in the sport of tennis. It's match point. You've fought your way back from a 2-5 deficit in the third set. You're up 6-5, 40-30 and you're serving. One good serve and the match is yours. Your left hand (or right if you're one of those lucky left-handers) trembles a bit as you prepare for the all-important toss. Your tongue slips out of the side of your mouth, tasting victory, as you concentrate. Drop the arm, bring it up slowly, and release the ball at the height of your reach. But suddenly your arm has a mind of its own and veers awkwardly to the left and the ball bounces two feet behind you. You smile sheepishly at your opponent. "Sorry!" you yell across the net and stumble a bit as you scoop up the ball for another try. The beauty of serving is that you can redo your toss as many times as it takes to achieve perfection. A lot of players may not know that. Of course, the embarrassment of repeated tosses may inhibit that option, so it's best to just get it right the first or second time.

After a couple of attempts, you get the toss you're looking for. You arch your back, bend your knees in perfect Sampras style, and reach up for the ball, snapping your wrist at just the right moment. Your follow-through lands you a foot into the court, just like it's supposed to. But the ball flies just inches past the service line. "Long!" your opponent screams with glee. You muster your resolve for the second serve. This one has to be in! Again, the toss is not right, but you scramble to the right to compensate. You're too flustered after missing that first serve to redo the toss again. Naturally, as it happens all too often with an errant toss, you hit the ball too low and it slams into the net. Double fault. Now it's deuce and your opponent has a chance to win. And she or he does by winning the next six points and the tiebreak because you can't stop thinking about that stupid double fault that cost you the set---and the match.

Sound familiar? If it does, here are some strategies I've employed to help me get back on task after losing a crucial point, particularly due to an unforced error.

To calm my nerves I think about water. Sometimes it's waves rhythmically rolling into shore when I need to focus on my breathing, other times I envision a waterfall gracefully cascading down a mountainside to help smooth out and quiet anxious thoughts. This really helps settle me and gets me back into the groove.
To assist in my focus and put my mind and body back on the court and in the moment where it belongs, instead of three points ahead or two points behind, I concentrate on a couple of areas.

The first thing that I do is really try to zero in on the ball. In my mind I make it as big as possible, like if you could blow it up in PhotoShop or something. Blow it up to the size of a basketball. Then I try to "BE" the ball. I know, very Zen, but it works most of the time. Wherever the ball is, I mentally move with the ball. As my opponent's preparing to serve, I'm with the ball. As it comes over the net, I'm with the ball. After I execute a textbook forehand, I stay with the ball as it rockets (we hope) over the net with just the right amount of topspin. Wherever that impish yellow orb is on the court, I try to mentally stay with it. And I urge my feet to follow. Moving in the direction of the ball, I work on keeping my weight forward in anticipation of striking the ball. When I do these two things, it's amazing how well I 'see' the ball. Most importantly it really helps me stay in the moment, which for me is a critical component for success in tennis and, I think, any sport.

So to sum up, when you're feeling particularly stressed and on the verge of choking away a match, imagine moving water to wash away negative thinking and help control your breathing, and for improved concentration and focus become one with the ball. It beats sending it flying out of the court in frustration and just might result in a win.
