Default How to stay positive between points?

Given the recent dismantlement of Nico Almagro by David Ferrer... I noticed a similarity between him and I. He really didn't believe in himself in his match against Ferrer. Granted, the guy had lost to Ferrer 12 times prior, but that being said, we all have someone or someones we have trouble beating and it doesn't help to come in to it with fragile belief in our performance to be easily rattled when the chips get down. Does anyone have any tips or sage advice on not becoming dispirited when falling behind in a match? Does anyone else have this problem? I don't really get angry, but I have a tough time staying positive. More time is spent not playing than playing when in a match and I am really interested in how others use the time in between points and what is going on with them mentally during these times.
