Hi, I have been playing tennis since I was 3-4 years old. I am now 16 yrs old and have been playing tournaments since the age of 9. As of just recently I have started to get extremely nervous before and during matches. When I mean extremely nervous I come to a point where my arm stiffens up so much that it is incredibly difficult for me to swing. I never used to have this nervous tension in the younger divisions instead I had more of an exhiliration or adrenaline that was actually useful. I dont know where my anxiety as really come from whether having extreme financial hardships to a pt where I feel guilty if I don't win or perhaps my own harsh expectations. I have been told to take care of the process but i don't know how to do this. Im tired of hearing same old thing like breath in breath out or eat nutricious food or even doing warm ups and basic rituals like these. I do all of these things yet I still can't help myself from being tight. I have 4.5-5.0 abilities as far as my strokes but my mind has gotten in my way. Are there any specific rituals other than breathing and bouncing the ball that will help to appease my anxiety and tension?
