2012-06-01T05:23:39Z Conclusion: The results of this study point to some theoretical and practical conclusions. From a theoretical point of view, the study showed a mental training resulted in a highly significant improvement on tennis serving precision, while for soccer penalty kicking the effect of mental training on precision was only marginally significant. This partly confirms the hypothesis. These results seem to be very logical, in tennis each point must start with a serve, but in soccer, the whole match may not have any penalty kicks at all.<br />Another theoretical result of the research is that, self-confidence seems to have an impact on improving performance when the athlete has more control over his movements, such as in closed skills. Additionally in tennis, the difference in TPT pre- and post-test results showed the level of improvement among the women in the study was larger than the improvement among the men, although this was only marginally significant. Perhaps a difference in the concentration and motivation of the women results in much faster or more effective learning than the men. In fact, there are no studies related to this area that have been found. It would also be interesting to study whether there are gender differences in motivation and the implementation of mental training, and if these produce different effects on performance. Furthermore, in both tennis and soccer, our findings may have resulted from more advanced players being in the habit of trying harder for accuracy; while younger players focus more on speed. From a practical standpoint, coaches and psychologists need to be aware of the specific demands for each sport, and incorporate imagery intervention during the preparatory and competitive periods of the season. The coaches and psychologists need to be aware of all available models of imagery intervention, their specific use, and increase mental skills training resources (audio and video). This is so they can more effectively help athletes improve their performance, monitor their pre-competitive anxiety and increase their levels self-confidence.
