WHAT IS THE FLOW IN SPORT?

Judging by the picture, Roger Federer is in full flow. But, what are we talking about if it's not rap?

In the world of rap, flow refers to the rhythm of the words spoken by the singer. But what is it for athletes?

In positive psychology, it is characterised as the optimal state of performance achieved by a person deeply immersed in an activity.

Not well known to the general public, flow is something sought after by all the top athletes! It brings athletes to a perfect balance between the demands of the situation, their overall potential and their self-confidence.

Often called "being in the zone", this state of grace lifts athletes' performance in all their activities. Then everything becomes easier and mistakes are almost non-existent! Isn't that right, Roger?
