In recent months, Alizé Cornet saw her first crisis of confidence. Very lucid on the situation after her defeat in the first round against Vera Dushevina, the Niçoise entrusts she needs help to break the vicious circle.[B][B]
"Alizé cornet, that is happening right now?
I'm not on my plate at the level of my tennis. Yet I have no moral problem in everyday life. But I have a small blockage in respect of the competition. It's frustrating and I have the impression of entering a vicious circle. I find it hard to get out. I expect the solutions of my coaches, we will gather tonight to discuss the future because I'm lacking motivation, I can not find my bearings. It becomes really hard.
What are the solutions?
It is important that I learned to breathe better on the court. It really is a glaring disadvantage, especially when I'm pretty stressed and at the moment is the case. At the end of the rallies, I completely apnea. Blow help me to relax and control my emotions. I'm too much sensitive at this time. I panic quickly. The mental work that I will have to do will have much influence on my results.
Thinking about taking a mental preparation?
It has thought of. Anyway, this can not be worse than that time. This can only make me well because I have much to do mentally. I've never known a period of crisis. I admit that I do not know how to manage it. Although Pierre (Editor's note: Bouteyre his coach) has given me many, many things since I was tiny, it needs to delegates on the subject. This will perhaps open other perspectives on my tennis and life in general. Pierre has always found the words, he has always fit me. Today, even he admits that I may need someone else to help me. It's honest of him to say he may be a limit on that side.
Do you have negative thoughts on the court?
Yes, I have only that. That's what kills me. My head explodes from negative thoughts. This affects my game and my ability to be there in key moments. It's very difficult to control.
Look in your video matches for analysis?
No. I am ashamed to see me. I want to see me for a shock, but I do not think you need it. I am very clear about my behavior on the court and what I can give information as to the opponent. Right now, I have a great sense of shame, I have no esteem for me. I always want to convey this image of fun on the court, but this is not what I vehicle at this time. "
