On Episode 226 of The Tennis Files Podcast, I spoke with coach Vesa Ponkka about how to handle pressure by changing your perspective.

Coach Vesa Ponkka is the Director of Tennis at the Junior Tennis Champions Center, home to Frances Tiafoe, Denis Kudla, and numerous other elite players. He was selected as the 2011 USOC National Developmental Coach of the Year and has trained top junior players in the United States and Europe for national, NCAA, ITF and professional competition. Vesa’s students have won numerous professional and national titles, achieved the #1 ITF Junior World Ranking, several #1 USTA National Rankings, and NCAA All-American honors. He also received several certifications including USPTA, PTR, and USTA High Performance.

On the show, you’ll learn how to gain a healthier perspective, the difference between positive pressure and negative pressure, helpful routines to deal with pressure, how top players develop a healthy perspective, the holistic pathway of development, insights into Frances Tiafoe’s and Denis Kudla’s training at JTCC, and much more!
