Methods: For my diploma thesis, I have chosen methods of testing, participant observation and scaling. The research group consisted of four players aged 16-17. I had tested these players using the ITN test, based on which I determined their game level. I used a method of participant observation in order to collect data for the evaluation of selected strokes' technique. Specifically, I observed the players during their training and sessions and made video records of them. Collected data were evaluated based on Likert scale, which contains of six levels.

Title: Analysis of competitive matches of peewees in tennis Objectives: The aim of this thesis was to determine how the players evaluate themselves in competitive matches and how they manage stressful situations during their matches. Methods: The study included five players of the tennis club Sokol Petrovice. Their age was 10 - 12 years old. From inquiries I obtained needed information from their coach and the feedback from the players themselves after playing competitive matches. Thanks to the observation, especially at a tennis training camp, I wrote an analysis of each player and I also observed the progression of competitive matches. Results: In most cases, players between 10 and 12 years old are not able to evaluate themselves objectively. Generally, their strongest stroke is forehand. Managing stressful situations during the matches depends mostly on psychical toughness of the players. Nervousness, loss of concentration and fear very often appear at this age while managing stressful situations. Key words: tennis, self - evaluation, stressful situation
