I came across this article today from Tennis Mental Edge about controlling our temper on the court. It includes three must see videos of the Pro’s behaving badly. After watching them you may realize that your “bad behavior“ on the court really is not that bad.
Racket breaking has never been a problem in our household but when my son finished his high school season he begged me to let him break just one racket. He had watched the pros do it and had always wanted to try it. Being the bad mother that I am, I let him do it. I think he had more fun breaking that racket than he did playing tennis for the whole four years of high school tennis. The racket now hangs proudly on his bedroom wall along side his other trophies. It being the favorite one.
