Personality is a strong foundation for the athlete’s development and managing of thoughts, emotions and behavior in general. As such, it determines the athlete’s levels and types of motivation, self confidence, perception and attitude as well as many other psychological components of the athletic performance

How do the athletes respond to the training dosage may differ most likely due to the difference in their physiological (genetics) and psychological (personality) characteristic

The center of the mass of the body is directly connected with the centering of the athlete’s mind. As centering of the mind makes the athlete more grounded, calm and relaxed, it lowers the levels of anxiety. Centering the thoughts, the athlete can be fully aware of the body’s position and to be exact – it’s center of mass and transfer of weight around it

 To enable the muscles to contract and relax at the faster rate
 To protect muscles and joints of any type of strains or injures

80% of total carbohydrate is stored in skeletal muscle and about 14% is stored in the liver (6% in the blood in the form of glucose), therefore it’s understandable the importance of nutrition to delay the onset of fatigue

Tennis game is pretty complex combination of: the movement patterns which brings the players to the strategic position (towards the ball or related to the opponent) and the decision making process of stroke execution and reaction.
