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!

Amelie is already working with a sports shrink!

I am glad of this!

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 :D

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

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!

Hey tennis freak,
not Elena LIKHOVTSEVA, Elena DEMENTIEVA!!!!!!!
She needs a shrink more than anyone ever (exept perhaps Hitler, I think he has one or two issues from his childhood (Ha ha ha LOL).
