Burnout is when your desire to compete and even play tennis decreases leading to lack of interest, playing without passion and eventually not wanting to practice, compete or even play. Burnout develops over time and can be caused by mental factors that result in excess pressure or the unfulfilled expectations of self or others or physical factors such as fatigue and injuries that make continued training and playing difficult and ineffective.

To stay in the game, keep a healthy perspective: focus on the fun and the joy and competing and improving rather than caring too much about winning or rankings. Leave yourself time to recover between practice and matches and when injured, get treatment, rest and rehab, rather than playing through them or trying to ignore them.
