The power of body language - how we carry and hold ourselves - is immense in influencing how we then feel and behave!
See this fantastic example from everyballer Amelie Brooks out in Braga, Portugal today where she won her first round TE 12&U match.
Confidence (not arrogance) oozing from her. Shoulders back, head up, strong gaze down the court as if to say, 'I own this stage'. Position of the racket head is key - up and in the left hand (non-dominant for Amelie). Got a bit of swagger going there Amelie, love it!!
Also big congrats to Jasmine Conway who has qualified through to main draw of a category 1, 14&U TE event in Portugal and went on to win her first round match today. Great job Jasmine and keep going!
