Federer's coach: How to play the big points well


Exclusive: Paul Annacone, Roger Federer’s coach, tells The Tennis Space ‘How to play the big points well’:

The best way to be effective on big points is to know your own game.

Set up the strategy to win or lose those points doing what you do best.

Think of and focus on the process not the potential consequences of the result.

Practice having a balanced reaction to any past results – understand this is “one of many…” Live to get better, perfect is what you have on that day – manage it and execute.

Be confident and clear in your game plan. Know this is how you want to proceed and go for it in a positive way. Have no fear.
