Do you think they work, too? So often, athletes use these psychologists. They seem to be a designer drug for athletes. I heard about athletes using them several times during the Olympics

Momo! Just to help her focus! Get her confidence up! She is not crazy! I just wish I could say as much for "The Momosapiens"

I vote for Justine, I think she needs to relax on court a little more!

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

Amelie is already working with a sports shrink!

I am glad of this!

*shoots Barrie in the head for calling us crazy *

Amélie Mauresmo, 2009 GDF Suez, 2007 Proximus Diamond Games, 2006 World No. 1 ,Wimbledon Champion, Proximus Diamond Games, Gaz, Australian Open, 2005 YEC, Advanta Chamionships, Italian Open, Proximus Diamond Games, 2004 World No. 1, Advanta Championships, Generali Linz, Rogers Cup, Italian Open, German Open, 2003 J&S Cup, Advanta Championships, 2002 Rogers AT&T Cup, Dubai Open, 2001 Gaz, Nice, Amelia Island, and Eurocard Ladies German Open, 2000 Adidas International, and 1999 Bratislava Champion

There's a fine line between love and hate; that line is called family!

No one does things exactly the way I want them to. No one ever has. It’s a problem they have!

AZARENKA!

I voted other.
Two players totally spring to mind when it comes to needing to get their heads sorted it out for the tennis courts:

Mirjana Lucic
Patty Schnyder

Two great talents whose minds do more harm than good on the tennis court these days. However, with Patty in the Antwerp semis and Mirjana in the maindraw for Memphis next week hopefully this will all be changing for the better.

Oh, wait - a SPORTS shrink...hmmm, I may need to change my vote

And Frey, bonking your patients is unethical. You may wish to rethink your position

Reason is poor propaganda when opposed by the yammering, unceasing lies of shrewd and evil and self-serving men.

Well as my mother always says "Position is everything in life"

fyi, I like Jenny fan's analogy - they do start to seem like ritalin: necessity for some, overprescribed for others.

6 months ago i would have voted martina
But now I think Anna would benefit most from seeing a sports psycologist because she has a mental hurdle stopping her from winning a tittle. A HUGE hurdle!
