Diego Schwartzman and Paulo Dybala discuss recovery and competitive mentality | ATP circuit
Diego Schwartzman and Paulo Dybala, a Juventus footballer, are close friends who talk to each other frequently and visit each other around the world to spend quality time together whenever they can.
The couple recently shared a relaxed conversation about recovery routines in tennis and soccer. Among other things, they also touched on interesting topics such as sports psychology and the importance of keeping your feet on the ground.
Schwartzman said that when looking at other sports what he finds most intriguing is post-game recovery. âEvery tennis player does whatever they need to do to feel comfortable, but the order is the bike, the ice and a little bit of stretching and massaging to recover,â he explained.
Dybala’s routine is similar, although there are some differences. In football it’s more of a team routine, with the peace of mind that they have at least three days before the next game. âBut you still have to recover quickly,â Dybala said.
âWin or lose, I have to see what happened, what I did in the game,â Schwartzman said. Dybala’s experience is different. âWe always watch the games, but it’s more game by game, I can memorize the games. proposed the footballer, who has played for the Italian giants since 2015.
âYour head is fundamental and part of the training. But when you light up it has to be 100%,â Dybala said. âIt’s the difference between the elite and the rest. The little details,â added Schwartzman.
