Once a kid commits to something in their head, like really commit, and let's say tennis becomes that important they usually start to lose to just about anybody. Why? I think it is because tennis is no longer a game to them, but life. They play as if it is life and death, and of course, can't keep it together since everything is judged by themselves. Too many thoughts, too much thinking, worrying about if he'll make it as a "pro" what other people think about their game. The question is if the kid will self destruct and give up, or persevere and see if he can overcome this period and possibly make it as a much better player. I hope this makes sense.
