Overcoming Pressure and Anxiety in Matches

In this sports psychology podcast, Dr. Cohn helps a tennis player who loses against opponents who he thinks he can beat easily, Dr. Cohn answers in this episode:

ROGER: I have anxiety, pressure before my matches. I lost to a player whom I could have defeated easily. He just hit the shots slowly and not deep. I know how to attack, but instead of attacking, I just played slowly and gave short balls. The problem is I can hit with pace and deep in practice but not in matches. Is this due to pressure or strategy?”
