Tennis Excuses. We all seem to have our favorites. Each time we deliver a less-than-perfect performance, most of us seem to reach into the list below and get one or two of our favorite excuses in an attempt to maintain our tennis ego. This is normal. When excuses become an obsession for a player however, little progress can be made toward improvement. An excuse is simply a message to all that there is a shortcoming in our game. An excuse is also the player's first clue on where to begin investing improvement efforts. The better players have spent considerable time listening to their excuses and addressing the cause. Most often, the dedicated player will eventually turn those excuse-producing situations into their strengths.
Listed below are a few of the more common excuses used in tennis. If you can relate to one or more of them, then you have opportunity for fundamental improvement. Fortunately, each one of them can be corrected with simple changes in attitude and/or technique. Once the excuses are mastered, then the player is ready for "World Class" skills development, and a lifetime of enjoyable tennis.
