Summary

From a young age, Neymar was identified as a future great of world soccer. Since his move to Barcelona in 2013 he has progressed at an unstoppable rate, not simply coping but thriving under the pressure of expectation.

Having established himself as a vital prong alongside Messi and Suarez in Barcelona's attack, 2015/16 saw him vying to take the starring role. His performances made his a serious contender for the Ballon d'Or, an award long-dominated by the unfaltering Messi and Ronaldo. It now seems only a matter of time before he adds the accolade to his ever-growing trophy collection.

Fully updated and drawing on exclusive interviews with those who have known and worked with him, Neymar paints a compelling picture of the life and career of a global icon.

    Software is responsible for the internal workings that make a computer operate properly. Likewise, your inner game as a tennis player is critical to your success. You can’t operate like a professional tennis player if you don’t think like one. Your mental fortitude, focus, and emotional control must be second nature, like programming running in the background. Within the pages of this book, you will find the only comprehensive source of all the mental skills required to compete as a professional tennis player. If you, your child, or your students are ready to stop struggling with the mental aspects of the game and instead uncover the inner strength needed to make it pro, then this book is for you.

    The awareness game

    Tennis is awareness. This study of technical, strategical, tactical, physical and mental awareness, as
    well as that of a person’s own personality, is the common theme of each chapter of this book and in every approach I take to coaching.
    Tennis exposes strengths and weaknesses. It is an equalizer, putting everyone on equal footing. On the court, there is no one you can ask for help.
    There is only you, your abilities and your experience in an unpredictable situation, where the only certainty is the awareness forged by experience.
    I took my inspiration from the Spanish Method of Luis Bruguera for who needs certainties and solid points, to the development of stances and podalic proprioceptivity of S. Sosa and A. Musulin, fundamental for a solid technique. Visual training analysis by postural and behavioral optometrist is
    the starting point to search motorial awareness. Chapters about psychomotor development analyze motor literacy building in which you can grasp that you can’t omit any letter. Criticalities in losses of balance accustom to adapt yourself to any situation E. Meyer affirms. American methodology by G. Jaramillo suggests the monothematic approach to automate learning.
    My work is also founded on my studies in Sport Science, following in-depth study and then, more importantly, on testing – first on myself and then on thousands of athletes that have truly brought “The game of awareness” to life.

    I have tried to show people of all ages the benefits of tennis.  It is a spring board to almost any other sport or activity one may pursue.  I started competing in a wide range of sports at an early age.  Tennis combines the best for all sports.  The movement on the court is up, back, side to side, reaching and the use of both hands.  This also includes strategy and endurance.  In singles one is out there by themselves and the result comes based upon how much the individual works.  Nothing worthwhile comes easy.
     
    It is this experience combined with my love of teaching that I want to get across to the reader.   Tennis is a great life lesson but should be fun.  It also can be played by all ages, regardless of skill or ailments.  There are too many things that we have to do, tennis should not be one of them.   
     
    Enjoy the game.
