Hi everyone - new here
I am an average club player in NW England (lower leagues!). I am fit and quite fast; opponents often comment on how sweetly I hit the ball. I'm not a great volleyer but passable, drop shots OK; my drives are my strength, straight and cross; boasts are reasonable to good. I love to get into long ralleys; often after matches opponents say how the 3-0 score does not at all represent the game (that's me on 0!). OK so I take a long hard look at my game and I find that I am consistently being wrong footed on boasts played by my opponent; often taken half court, I find myself way out of position. Some players who rely on boasts as their killer shot beat me hands down whereas I feel that I am a far better complete squash player .. very frustrating! Even when I hit decent lengths the "boasters" can often make a volley boast and win the point - I just don't seem to see them at all, despite watching the player.
So can anybody offer any advice please? This is a huge and annoying hole in my game and it loses me so many games it's depressing. Is this a common problem?
