    Try "The Inner Game of Tennis" by W Timothy Gallwey. Helped me a lot with keeping a level head in a match.

    Winning ugly is a good book, but I haven't read that many.

    By, "...the one mentioned...", do you mean "Winning Ugly"? That is a great book and a FUN book to read as well! Love the stories and how Brad breaks down the other pros's games...!
