Winning Uglier with Brad Gilbert
Psychology with Jeff Greenwald
We welcome world-renowned sports psychologist Jeff Greenwald to the podcast. Jeff has authored the best-selling book The Best Tennis of Your Life and runs fearlesstennis.com. In addition to helping his clients bring out their best more often, he’s put his methods to the test with his own game, reaching world no.1 in the ITF men’s 35 division. We pick Jeff's brain with various questions regarding the mental game. These include focusing on how you're playing vs fixation on the result (11:16), controlling emotions (15:15), dealing with pressure (22:20), bridging the gap between practice and matches (28:06), and getting out of a funk (37:47). Jeff and BG also have some good back and forth moments about playing safe vs aggressive.
