                                                MENTAL EDGE

 

In tennis, there's no such thing as too great a lead.  Winning the last few points against a determined opponent can be tense and difficult.   This is where a looming task, mixed with some level of insecurity, can make finishing the job more difficult than it seems.

 

Players will sometimes feel like they have a comfortable lead, but if you are playing a strong opponent, you will face and overcome the high-pressure games standing between the opponent and victory.  You have to be mentality ready to face up to the situation.   Losing is unpleasant.  So when you are ahead, force yourself forward.

 

You must be prepared to relax when you are leading.  Never be satisfied with a lead, no matter how great it is.  Keep working to open a wider gap between you and your opponent.  It is no disgrace to lose because you  became over confident.  On the other hand, it is perceived as weak to have your opponent down, try your hardest to win.   Whether you're leading by a lot, or not, keep your intensity up every chance you get.  If you do, the probabilities of a victory will be in your favor.

                      HEALTH BENEFITS OF TENNIS FOR WOMEN

 

                      Improve Your Social Skills

Tennis helps you in achieving a better degree of socialization as you have to interact with different players.

                              Improve Your Mood

When you work out, you increase your serotonin levels.  Serotonin is important because it is the "feel good" sensation.  You have greater self-esteem, less anxious, angry and depressed.

                           Better Motor Control

Tennis works both your gross and fine motor control skills.  Gross motor control skills include the use of your arms and legs, and fine motor skills include the use of small muscles found in your hands.

             Improve Your Balance & Flexibility

Tennis requires the cooperation of your whole body.  The game has a lot of starts, stops, quick movement and direction changes.  All these movements help maintain your balance, flexibility, coordination, and muscle agility.

                                  Lose Weight

Weight loss is all about creating a calorie deficit. The key to calorie- burning is the intensity of the activity and the duration.  Tennis can be an effective way to lose weight and tone your muscles.

                         Improves Bone Health

Playing tennis has a positive impact on your bones.  Exercising regularly can increase your peak bone mass and can slow the rate of bone mass over time.

                                      Have Fun                                                              

The last health benefit is for everyone.  Tennis allows you to relax, enjoy time with your friends, and even improve your mood, so fun is definitely a side effect from playing this great sport.  Physically having fun releases endorphins which can temporarily relieve pain.
