Venus Williams, an American tennis player, once said,” tennis is mostly mental. You win or lose a match before you even go out there.” We, the team of LetsPlay Academies, firmly believe in this quote, because, like any other sport, at the end of the day your mental determination to win a match matters the most.
The training required in playing tennis is indeed challenging at times but it’s more of a mental challenge than physical. There are professional sports academies which teach you how to play a sport, gives you all the facilities, provides you with the equipment, but there are a very few tennis coaching academies that teach you how to be mentally strong at play, how to accept failure and how to make a comeback. So, while choosing an academy, do keep this in mind.
