I can't emphasize much on having good mental skills is so important in tennis.

Just look at the latest incident where David Nalbandian was DISQUALIFIED from the FINALS in the Aegon Championships. Watch the video clip here.

Besides being disqualified, he was also fined the maximum $12,560 and placed under police investigation for assault after kicking an advertising board and injuring a line judge during the Queen's Club final. The ATP confirmed the fine for unsportsmanlike conduct on Monday and said the Argentine player also was stripped of his $57,350 in prize money.

Worth it over a loss of a point???

By the way, he won the first set 7-6. The second set was at 3-3 when the incident happened. He may have lost the serve and trailed 3-4 but if he kept his cool using good mental skills techniques, he may break back Cilic's serve immediately.

What can he do to break out of the situation?

1. Breathe deeply and regroup his thoughts

2. Engage in positive self talk.

3. Focus on the next point and let go of that lost point.

What other things can he do?

I am a firm believer that having good mental skills and techniques can improve your tennis tremendously, be it in learning tennis or playing a tennis match. That is why I dedicated one section of my website recently on Mental Tennis. This section is going to grow overtime as I will be uploading more articles to help you improve your tennis.

You can also let me know which aspect of mental tennis you are interested in and I will try my best to help you.

I would love to hear from you.

"Hi Joel, fully agree with what you mentioned in this report, and I have some self-thought after reading it, I find it very true, in fact most of the players that I talk to don't have the attributes to be a top pro. Great stuff." Anthony
