10 reviews for The Best Tennis of Your Life: 50 Mental Strategies for Fearless Performance

  1. The Outdoor Type

    Greenwald presents his techniques for mastering the mental aspects of competetive tennis in a clear narrative. This book is an invaluable resource for controlling a critical aspect of playing up to one’s full potential. Players at every level can gain much by employing the advice given here – this is certainly a book that I will be revisiting frequently. Like Brad Gilbert’s Winning Ugly, Greenwald provides tips and advice which can be cornerstones of success, but in a different fashion. Both books are well worth absorbing.

  2. George A. Basham

    I like how these “bite size” chapters can be read in a couple of minutes at a time. Simple, profound and inspirational. A book to be reread many times in order to absorb all the suggestions and build a solid mental framework.

  3. Paulo

    Very precise strategies to embrace the road to the Best Tennis of Your Life. It is not magic, the one needs to commit to daily apply it.

  4. AlwaysBLearning

    I’ve bought more than a dozen copies of this for family and friends. Bit sized bits of wisdom throughout.

  5. Nat101

    I’ve been playing A grade tennis for over 30 years and never really considered the mental aspects of the game. I highly recommend this book. I got a lot out of it and now better understand how the mind and my thoughts play such a important part in the game. Gone are the days of expecting to win every point and never making a mistake. Now I don’t beat up on myself for making errors. The book’s filled with wisdom about attitude, behavior, positive affirmations and how you bring all these together to make you a better tennis player and person. I’m ordering additional books to give to my team mates. It’s one of those books that will change your life.

  6. PS

    This book is amazing. I am embarrassed it has taken me this long in my 30 year tennis career to stumble upon this gem. Amazing tips and strategies for improving mental performance on court. This book and Inner Game are a pair. Inner Game is a little more theoretical and Best Tennis is more practical. I highly recommend both!

  7. Gyata Stormon

    I’ve owned this book for over 10 years and it’s still my go-to book to inspire me before a match, cheer me up after a disappointing loss or to give to students who are struggling with the mental game. The 50 short chapters cover a range of situations and feelings one comes across while competing, and gives suggestions for overcoming each difficulty.

  8. Amazon Customer

    What he has written makes so much sense. I have read ‘winning ugly’ from Brad Gilbert. He may a good playervat his time but Jeff’s book was way better. One of the best mental toughness book i’ve read but….to get the message across to some of the younger players to think likewise is another thing.

  9. John Murray

    The next edition of this book should be subtitled “Relax, enjoy, and win” because that’s exactly what it helped me do. Yes, even at the recreational level, playing to win is part of the game (your doubles partner would no doubt approve) but subjecting yourself to an ongoing internal monologue of pressure and self-criticism is demoralizing, ineffective, and takes the fun out of the game. Jeff Greenwald tells you how to reduce pressure and relax which in my case has resulted in more wins, fewer losses, and – best of all – a lot more enjoyment. I play doubles with a very competitive group and found myself becoming uncomfortable at the prospect of playing each week but after reading The Best Tennis of Your Life I look forward to playing and really enjoy it. Read this book and smile when Hammerin’ Hank winds up for a cannonball serve to your backhand. See if you don’t return more of them and enjoy the game too!

    I bought it mainly to discuss with my son who competes at the junior level. The book is easy to read (highlight), pick out the main ideas from each chapter (there are 50 of them) and try to implement those that you need, such as breathing or relaxing your body, how to get back into focus during the match and how to act when you are driven crazy by your opponent’s dirty play.
