Rippa Rita`s championship squash tip
Ever heard a player talk about the shots they do not like to be played by their opponent?  Usually these shots are shots that make them run, or cause the body to fatigue quicker than normal. The thing is, your tactics have a direct bearing on the way your opponent plays. Do you have shots they don't like you playing?

So, if you don't like drop shots -
    •  keep the opponent out of the front of the court, except when they are well out of position.
If you don't like the opponent volleying:
    •  keep the balls tight to the side wall and/or
    •  keep the shots low and hard.
    • be careful of cross court.
    • make sure lobs are high.
If you don't like running -
    •  get to the T and volley as much as possible.
If the opponent is fast -
    •  take the speed away from them by keeping the ball tight to the side walls; better still, if the ball lands in the corners.
The tip is: Practice these skills one at a time over several weeks.squash game squash extras How to add images to Members' Forum posts and replies here... PSA Squash TV - North American Open 2012

Actually I should have said keep practising these tactics forever, is more to the point.
