"I was down 10-2 in the first game, and at that point I just slowed everything down and told myself to readjust, and so that’s what I did. I rethought my strategy and ended up winning that game and the next few to win the match. I honestly believe that I have reached a point of consistent good mindsets in matches. It used to be every few was calm and collected but now it’s becoming almost all. Thank You!" - Squash student-athlete coaching client
