On Episode 347 of The Tennis Files Podcast, I spoke with Vince Van Patten about the keys to performing at the highest level as a former professional tennis player, actor, and poker player/commentator.

Vince achieved a #26 ATP singles ranking and #24 doubles ranking. He reached the 3rd round of the US Open and Wimbledon in singles, and the Quarterfinals of the French Open in doubles. Vince defeated tennis legend John McEnroe and two other top ten players en route to winning the Seiko World Super Tennis tournament. Vince was also a famous actor and is one of the main commentators for the World Poker Tour. He is currently playing professional pickleball, teaming up with Ivan Lendl in doubles.

On the show, you’ll learn why confidence played a huge part in Vince’s success on the ATP Tour, how Vince transitioned from an acting career to professional tennis, his epic experiences playing both professional tennis and high stakes poker, and much more!
