Tennis  - Former Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova is the latest player to have used a sports psychologist to help her tide over the difficulties of day-in day-out professional tennis.

Speaking to the media after winning her semi-final and advancing to her second Wimbledon final, Kvitova acknowledged that she had used the services of a sports psychologist. "You know, it's nice to talk with somebody who probably knows how I'm feeling before my match. If I'm like very nervous or... He's trying to talk a lot with me about the next match, what I should do, what I have to be prepared for. I mean, it's really tough to describe. I mean, during the tournament it's really about the talk, what I needs to think about. I'm doing some visualization as well. That's everything, small things."

Soon after winning Wimbledon, Kvitova was tipped to be the next world no. 1 and dominating player in the game. But she has since underachieved, according to experts in the game. "I mean, it's difficult to still be with the pressure every time you step on the court against some opponent. You are most of the time favorite of the match and it's really not easy. It needs some time to used to, definitely. I mean, that's something what I am living with right now. I don't think it's can change. It's part of my life right now, and that's it."

Kvitova meets Eugenie Bouchard in the singles final today at Wimbledon and has a 1-0 record over the young Canadian, who is playing in her first Grand Slam singles final.
