Tips To Win Your Next Match

Tennis players who consistently win their matches bring more to the court than a killer forehand or serve.   Winning is an art that involves the ability to observe your opponent and act on what you see. It also takes mental fortitude and an ability to protect, and even mask, your own weaknesses.  Here are a few strategies that will help you become a better competitor and, ultimately, win more matches.

Pay Attention to Your Opponent’s “Current” Style of Play

Top players don’t usually stick to a losing game for long. They’ll often shift to a different style of play. They may lose the first set with plan A. But they’ll go onto win the match with plan B or C.

Stick With What Works

If your strategy is working don’t change it until your opponent has proven he/she can beat it.
In other words, stick with the same old boring winner.

Watch How Your Opponent Moves
Some opponents are terrific from the baseline yet pitiful while pushed back or pulled forward into the forecourt.  Pay attention to what they like and don’t like.
