There is only one Mental Pre-Match Preparation that works..awareness.
Not one minute, 10 minutes or 1 hour before the game, but all day,....... as a way of living life.
The athlete or professional can choose to live in awareness doing what they know to be right, each and every moment of their ay, always objective to the distractions of the mental, Simply being aware of what they are doing now.

Everyone knows what is right for them to do in this moment, and they have the choice to do it, or to be lost in a mental or emotional distraction. All power comes from doing what you know is right, staying in this awareness; Not choosing to be lost in "Thought."
Then when you step on the court or field or into the arena, you carry with you a character that is charged and strong, not from weights, but from mental toughness in your whole life.

The BNP Paribas Open, the largest combined ATP World Tour and Sony Ericsson WTA Tour event in the world will once again feature exceptional men's and women's fields including former champions World No. 1 Roger Federer (2004-2006), three-time major champion Maria Sharapova (2006), defending champion Rafael Nadal (2007 and 2009), defending US Open champion Kim Clijsters (2003 and 2005) and more!

The festival of tennis that has been dubbed the "5th Grandslam" is surrounded by mountains, palm trees and lush green grass.

"It is my favorite tournament and I have been to them all," said Dr Niska, a recreational player who puts Indian Wells above Wimbledon. "No where can you see the top players so close and in such a beautiful setting. I have been to Wimbledon, Key Biscaynne, US Open, the French but this tops them all."

Many tennis athletes have a shoulder syndrome that is created by muscle imbalances. Over the years, tennis elbow has made its way into medical terminology; a layperson knows it and in the medical field it is called lateral epicondylitis. Lateral epicondylitis, or tennis elbow, is the inflammation of a tendon secondary to overuse, poor mechanics, or trauma to this area. Few of us have heard of tennis shoulder, a term I have named while assessing many athletes including national and mature-ranked players. This term comes from an observation I have made in these professions; this pathology is not only elbow pathology, but more importantly a shoulder complex pathology. The term is not a misnomer. Having worked with these gifted athletes, I have discovered consistent patterns across the board regardless of gender. I have seen significant overtrained shoulders of internal rotators and pectoralis muscles, along with biceps, of the dominant arm of a tennis player, thus demonstrating undertrained muscles of the right arm. Specifically, external rotators and rotator cuff muscles. I see this often with my young players and old players alike. This condition increases the imbalances as a person increases his or her activity.

The Bryan brothers win their eighth major championship.

Jan. 30, 2010:   ATP World Tour Doubles Champions Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan defeated rivals Daniel Nestor and Nenad Zimonjic 6-3, 6-7(5), 6-3 Saturday evening in Melbourne to win their fourth Australian Open doubles crown. Las Vegas was lucky enough to have this world class team in our own back yard just weeks before their record breaking victory.
 


   
YOU WOULD SWEAR THEY WERE PHOTOGRAPHS..... MUST SEE ALL THE WAY TO THE END.



   
On a day that doubles legends Todd Woodbridge and Mark Woodforde got inducted into the Tennis Australia Hall of Fame, top seeds Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan won an all-American clash 7-5, 4-6, 7-6(2) against Eric Butorac and Rajeev Ram on Tuesday night for a place in the Australian Open semi-finals. 
 
The Californian twins recorded their 40th win at Melbourne Park (40-7 record) and kept alive their chances of capturing a fourth Australian Open title and eighth Grand Slam crown overall.  The Bryans have won 56 team titles (56-38 overall) compared to 61 trophies won by the 'Woodies'.
 
The Bros. have been the #1 team in the world for five of the past seven years and voted the Fans Favorite Doubles Team for the past four years in a row.  The ATP named them the Doubles Team of the Decade last December.
 
In the semi-finals, the five-time ATP World Tour Champions will challenge first-time partners Michael Kohlmann of Germany and Finland's Jarkko Nieminen.  Story courtesy ATPWorldTour.com
