Sometimes its good to release your frustration

Down a set and just been broken at 4 all in the second Andy Roddick let out what he was feeling smashing his racket as he went to change of ends, it obviously helped because Andy broke Gulbis in the very next game who was serving for a two sets to love lead and went on to win the set and the match in 4 sets in a recent US OPEN encounter.On the other Hand once Marat Safin starts breaking frames its to the opponents advantage.Junior tennis players probably should follow the method of not showing your opponent to much emotion especially if your are sending out negative vibes, smart players will take this on board and use it to their advantage.

There will be an interesting Asia-Oceania Group II final when New Zealand comes up against China, to be played in New Plymouth 19-21 September.New Zealand Players have the following world rankings Dan King Turner 411, Rubin Staham 418, G.D Jones 618,Adam Thompson 813. Whilst China's team has not yet been announced ,their top 4 players and world ranking are Yan Bai 502, Peng Sun 518,Shao-Xuan Zeng 566,Zhe Li 573
Home Ground advantage will be an asset for New Zealand.

In the finals of Asia Oceania Group One, on the same dates in September, Australia will play Chile (at home, in the city of Antofagasta). If Australia loses that tie (their team is currently without Lleyton Hewitt, absent through injury), and New Zealand wins against China, then the two trans-Tasman rivals will be competing in the same Group next year. And this is a huge possibility, great for New Zealand but Australian's will not be happy and you can bet that this will be the last nail in the coffin for key administrators in Tennis Australia.
