Let's myself down mentally yesterday
I have been receiving coaching the last few months and really noticed an improvement in my game, I have started to enjoy tennis even more and started to win many more games compared to before.
Now, we had a little Davis cup tournament yesterday (doubles) and we won our opening match against a team that were ranked higher than us, it felt great. Just before the start of the second match one of the guys asked me if "I was any good?" Obviously I felt the need to be humble and said I was ok rather than day oh yeah I'm darn good but throughout the match I kept on questioning myself and thinking "how good am I" and I performed really poorly and got myself into negative thinking, we lost a match to a team lower seeded team that I felt we should have won when earlier on we played a terrific game to defeat the higher seeds.
How would you guys have handled this? I can't believe a simple question really hit a negative trigger.
