Top tennis players use the time between points to maximize their readiness, not only physically but mentally and emotionally as well. One sure-fire psychological preparation technique is the 3-R's "RM" mental training system presented in "Focused for Tennis".

Coauthored by sport psychologist Karl Slaikeu and former USTA tour pro Robert Trogolo, "Focused for Tennis" reveals the thought processes used by tennis champions to get into and stay in a positive mental and emotional zone throughout a match. Each chapter includes a "spotlight" on a top pro player that explains how his or her mental training paid off. Some of the featured champions are Martina Hingis, John McEnroe, Steffi Graf, Michael Chang, and Monica Seles.

The 25 seconds between points and the 90 seconds during changeovers aren't wasted by champion tennis players. "Focused for Tennis" shows players how to use this time to their advantage and win.
