BBQ Maniac ,

Good

Good tidbits of advice. Image training has worked a lot for me (hope Patrick does a segment on it). Example: if I watch the 2001 Goran/Rafter final, and imagine that I'm Goran (with that determined serve) during a tourney, I ace A LOT. If not, I choke. It works.
Good Podcast but wish the advertising would be toned down.

Great insight!

Easy listen

Too Vague

The author doesn’t get into any proven methods or key words, phrases. Some may find this podcast helpful, but I did not find enough detail to call this useful to me.
