I have just watched, with interest, a match when the apparent winner became the loser.
In many a match there is a "turning point". What brings about this situation?
Usually this is brought about by the loss/win of an important game/point. You can create these turning points by:
- Continuing to apply pressure to the opponent, eg by getting the winning shots back into play.
- The determination you show as an opponent, eg never give in - focus.
- Attacking the weaknesses of the opponent
- Cutting out the areas in your game where the opponent is winning
You can avoid these turning points by:
- Minimising unforced errors
- Retaining confidence in your ability
- Retaining focus and not getting frustrated when the opponent starts playing tougher.
The "turning point" often does not become obvious until near the end when the "tables are turned". The winner becomes the loser.
Believe me, never give up. Keep working on the weaknesses of the opponent, eg their fitness level, mental ability, tactical ability and skill levels.
Once realising and experiencing this feat you will do it again and again. Try it. Tell us about it.
