Abstract

The research evaluates competitive anxiety and self-efficacy before and after sports competitions and establishes a comparison between related groups. It is a comparative cross-sectional study and was carried out on a sample of 60 Ecuadorian tennis players of junior and open national ranking; selected through non-probabilistic sampling for convenience. The Illinois Self-Assessment Questionnaire (CSAI-2) was used in the updated version of Cox, Martens and Russell (2003), which evaluates Cognitive Anxiety, Somatic Anxiety, and Self-Confidence; the Scale of General Self-Efficacy (EAG) of Baessler and Schwarzer (1973), adapted by Cid, Orellana and Barriga (2010), which values personal thoughts and feelings in the face of a competition; the Scale of Motor Self-Efficacy (EAM) adapted to the sport to evaluate thoughts, feelings and actions in the face of the stress of sports competitions (Sanjuán, Pérez, & Bermúdez, 2000); and the Sports Execution Psychological Inventory (IPED) of Hernández (2006), adapted by Hernández-Mendo, Morales-Sánchez and Peñalver (2014), which identifies strengths and weaknesses in athletes during sports practice. Participants reached higher values in the second evaluation of CSAI-2; pattern repeated in the EAG; the EAM; and in the IPED, except in the Self-confidence dimension. The Self-confidence construct could be studied in isolation, in order to explain its invariability.
