This is a million dollar question.
The best way I can recommend is to make sure that during your training you are totally focussed and put yourself under a little pressure during training. YOu can do this in a few ways like counting the number of strokes you make. Make a game out of your drills and other ways that will help you to concentrate during your session. Then when you get to a game situation you will find that you have already been in the situation many times before and will feel more comfortable.
This will also help with your concentration.
In a match situation, if you do feel nervous, one simple way to help yourself is to take a deep breath and focus on what you need to do for the next point.
You can also look through our list of previous questions under the topic of Mental Preparation. There are some really good tips to be read there as well.
