Well, you could always shout back harder when you win the points.
Size em up a bit.

No, just the really loud and annoying come ons after you make a particularly bad error.

Re: Not letting Henin/Murray type behaviour get to you.

the best thing i ever did was buy myself a vibration dampner with a peace sign on it. whenever i start feeling my temper or annoyance rising on court i turn my back look at the peace sign and breathe. i haven't smashed a racket since having it, and im a regular racket smasher.

Re: Not letting Henin/Murray type behaviour get to you.

As hard as it can be when you're already frustrated by your own errors, the best thing to try and do is just focus on yourself and block the other person out. In tennis it is important to have a short term memory - Focus one point at a time, and don't dwell on the past, or get ahead of yourself.

When you are playing against someone who has an aggressive in your face attitude, they are looking to get that negative reaction from you, either by being frustrated, or intimidated. Nothing helps them more than visibly seeing that their antics are upsetting you and consequently unravelling your game in the process.

Play within yourself, and play smart percentage tennis, that will help to reduce the chance of errors. Also, the more focused you are, the more inclined you will be to reduce your errors because you are remembering the little things (keeping your eye on the ball, small footwork adjustments etc.).

And once you've beat them, then you can let out a good holler and a fist pump back

I am not offensive. I just make a come on after every point I win, something like Rezai towards the end of the match.

Re: Not letting Henin/Murray type behaviour get to you.

Personally, screaming and fistpumping really help me keep the momentum going when it's in my favour, ESPECIALLY in tiebreaks. When I lead 5-1, a simple side change is enough for me to lose concentration, I need the shouting and fistpumping and talking to keep going.

Re: Not letting Henin/Murray type behaviour get to you.

No emotions, be a perfeccionist on court, the only thing that matters in the moment of playing is tennis, if you deny the happiness you'll also be able to deny the frustration, it works for me I can be more efficient on court, save more energy, and avoid more chokes. Of course I'm just talking about tennis, if this was a way of live I would commit suicide

Re: Not letting Henin/Murray type behaviour get to you.

I played someone on the weekend like that
It's really annoying when they do it every point, fair nough if it was a tight situation or after a good shots/long rally but after simple things like a missed return it's just frustating.
