I told some members of a high school team I taught at this yesterday,”Win the first point of every game and set, and always try to start strong and finish strong in matches.”
This is how you should be playing every match, to give yourself the best chance to win it.
By winning the first point in every game, you will give yourself the best chance at winning that game,the same with a set, only with playing sets, I would think winning the first 2 games are even better for you.
Let’s break a matchplay strategy down here for you.
Win the first point of every game, then play the next point harder then the first one,after that, continue and close the game out.
With sets,play the first 3 games like you are down love-3, this mentally give you a sense of urgency with your play, which is a good thing for your “fighting spirit”.
In every match you should be playing each point HARDER then the last one,if you do this and just focus on the next point, you will become unstoppable in matches!!
“And the secret to making this work for you, is to mentally detach from the outcome.”
Copy this and read it before your matches for a month or two.
Watch, your results are going to be off the charts, I’ll let you in on another secret too, “this is the matchplay mindset that I instill in my lower ranked players, that help them to start overachieving with their present mental game’s.
Talk to you guys tomorrow.
