Re: Not letting Henin/Murray type behaviour get to you.
Its kind of hard to not let it get to you. I havent played anyone who does it (because I play with friends only)
But when I used to play Waterpolo for my high school, we once faced a team of boys who would say nasty things when you got close to them, the refree couldnt hear it ofcourse so it was of no use. You just block it out and try to keep concentrated, becomes easier with practice. One of the tricks that I use is to remind myself of the basics if I start losing concentration.
Don't you just give the guys wedgies or kick them in the nuts in water polo if they piss you off?
And if your life were gold, how long do you think you'd stay living?
