Crack under pressure

If you have followed this blog, you'll know that I love tennis. I play the sport every Friday and it's one of the best ways for me to relax from a hard day of work.

It's tennis season in Australia and I was watching Kim Clijsters crashing out of Australian Open earlier.

It's a pity when people were so hyped up about her comeback and she produced such a disastrous defeat.

Are we too harsh on our idols? Do we put too much expectation on them as we do to ourselves? Have you cracked under high expectation before?

  2. We need some destress strategy...
