Rippa Rita`s championship squash tip

How can we lose our head? Easily.  How? What?

  • when you get ahead and get excited or anxious to win, hang onto your head.
  • when winners miss or shots go out, keep your head.
  • win a few consecutive games/points, keep your head.
  • when the opponent fights back, and get your good shots/winners back, keep your head.
  • if you try to do better when you are already doing well, careful, as trying too hard can lose vital rhythm.

Continually regroup when things get tough by:

  • reducing your heart rate (the heart is sure to be pumping fast)
  • controlled breathing (get the maximum amount of oxygen to the brain)
  • keep the eyes and mind within the court (wear blinkers so to speak)
  • don't rush to serve (compose)
  • forget the audience (ignore their presence)

When winning, for whatever the reason (opponent back from injury, higher seed, lower seed, winding down to retirement, etc ) never take anything for granted, never assume the match is over till the handshake.

When you are winning, stick to the fundamentals, and keep your "head".
