In this episode, Brian and Josh discuss the topic of full focus. The ability to fully focus during tennis matches is often cited as a critical factor to success, however many tennis players struggle to maintain their focus in high-pressure moments and throughout the duration of a tennis match. The co-hosts described the importance of focusing on what can be controlled, and focusing on the present moment rather than on the past or future. Furthermore, they discussed how athletes ought to focus on their long-term development process rather than getting too caught up in individual results.
