Acting negatively in the moment doesn't necessarily mean you won't win. The difference is whether you carry it with you.

I don't know if he has always been negative on the court or it is a result of having a really long bad spell. You can have all the talent in the world but if your head isn't right you will not live up to your potential.
It's one thing to yell out if you double fault. It's another to let it carry on and affect you for much of the match.
