    come back attempts by all super stars have failed ,do you remember what happened to Bjorn Borg ? The super star status is attained with conformity to highest standards of the game and the individual ,the continuity and form they exhibit .When they practice the game with right mental skills and work hard the subconscious records all this and reproduces them at the right moment, there is great amount of confidence and the player keeps on winning.But when there is a layoff from the game these recordings are erased and there is a sense of low confidence and motivation. when the player tries for a come back he is not supported by the same factors that made him a champion besides he is playing against players he is not familiar with and he is no longer younger .So making a come back in these days of extreme competitive gamesmanship is very difficult except in games like cricket where we have seen come backs happen.Michael SCHUMACHER AND TIGER WOODS ARE NOT SETTING THE WORLD ON FIRE WITH THEIR COMEBACKS.
