Sometimes there are times on the court when a player suddenly becomes very anxious. This may be the result of a point situation, but not necessarily. There can be several reasons, but the result is always a short circuit and worse play. Plays of such a player will then be fast and inaccurate. He will fight not only with the opponent, but mainly with his own fear . Everything looks very heavily colored in his eyes. The opponent seems to be better than the wall, and the court in its half is much smaller. In such situations, when panic prevails over the player, one of the simplest things he can do then is focus on proper breathing .
Conscious exhalation with each hit of the ball allows the player first: focus on his body, not on the panic he feels, and secondly: it has a relaxing effect , which makes the player play more relaxed and thus his strokes are played more confidently and more synthetically, and most importantly, more effectively.
Often, with a feeling of fear, players play balls holding their breath , which means that the games do not flow "naturally", but are played with strength and lack of depth and control. In this situation, the athlete must realize that he is not breathing and change it as soon as possible. It is also good to catch a rhythmic deep breath between the games, which will also allow the tennis player to calm down and relax a bit.
It is also worth spending the break time to plan further tactics to be able to lean on something and have your own plan for the game, not as it often happens when a player feels fear, bounce balls in panic, praying that the opponent makes a mistake.
So remember to breathe correctly during the game. This seems obvious, but when it comes to what, players often forget about the key role of breath and later during the panic during the match they cannot help each other.
