LONDON, March 16 -- The first day of Dr. John F. Murray's Smart Tennis Sport Psychology Workshops ended on a thrilling note Friday afternoon as famous spoon bender Uri Geller bent a vintage Wilson T-2000tennis racket (pictures available upon request)
after giving an inspirational speech. The workshop was held at the David Lloyd Club Raynes Park in London. Murray and Geller appeared together last week on the largest syndicated morning radio show, The Doug Stephan Show, to discuss the power of the mind
and sport psychology. In the broadcast to more than 450 stations, Stephan asked Geller how he could bend a tennis racket. Geller responded that he had never tried.
Geller spoke about his rise to fame from humble roots, and about the power of the mind to achieve almost anything. In one demonstration on positive thinking and the dangers of negativity, he out-muscled Barry Cowan, a British tennis player who beat Roger Federer, and took Pete Sampras to 5 sets at Wimbledon, after instructing Cowan to think negative thoughts. After Geller bent and broke spoons, guests inspected a metal tennis racket from the club pro shop and declared it straight and sturdy. But after Geller
applied several light strokes to the racket's surface, the racket bent and continued bending for some time. Also in attendance were club management, LTA tennis coach Paul Barton, and 15 guests.
Murray, a licensed sport performance psychologist and author of "Smart Tennis: How to Play and Win the Mental Game," cover-endorsed by Lindsay Davenport, helped Vincent Spadea overcome the longest losing streak. His workshops offer fun and improved mental performance. Murray invited his friend Geller to the workshop, teasing him that he needed help with his mental game.
