Nancy Crawly 1/28/11 Covassin T., Pero S. (2004). The relationship between self-confidence, mood state, and anxiety among Collegiate tennis players. Journal of Sport Behavior, 27, 230-242. Covassin and Pero held a study of twenty-four male tennis athletes in order to examine mood states such as self-confidence, anxiety, etc. In order to have this experiment Covassina and Pero attended a NCAA Regional Tournament and gave twenty-four tennis players two different tests. The two tests administered to each player were the Profile of Mood States (POMS) and Competitive State Anxiety Inventory-2 (CSAI-2). They believed the tests would be fair because most of the tennis players were equally athletic. These two tests were completed thirty minutes before the match would occur. The POMS was used to obtain measures in mood disturbances before the NCAA matches. The data received from this testing was changed over into T-scores, so it facilitated the subscale comparison between the athletes who were in this study.
