Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0736001565, Paperback)

If you are looking for a training system that prepares tennis players for the pressures of competitive match play, look no further than Pressure Tennis. This instructional book shows you how to raise the level of intensity of your practices, increasing their effectiveness and mentally toughening up your players.

Tennis coach Paul Wardlaw has created and refined his extraordinary training program through his 14 successful seasons at the college level. Through his system, you will learn how to design and implement effective practice sessions using pressure drills that simulate match-like conditions. Pressure Tennis will also demonstrate how you can help your players develop

- high-percentage tactics;
- aggressive court position;
- varied, intelligent shot selection; and
- better court coverage and anticipation of the opponent's shot.

Within the first week or two of use, the system improves concentration, motivation, confidence, and conditioning. More important, players develop a resilience to match-play pressure and welcome the challenge of even the toughest opponent. To help evaluate progress, Wardlaw has included a novel Performance Index that provides coaches with a more objective measure of each player's execution, effort, and ranking on the team.

Whether you're a player or a coach, you'll want Pressure Tennis for the blueprint it provides for enhancing mental toughness.
