Cutting back on your unforced errors and consistently getting the ball back, while letting your opponent go for the winners, is an actual plan that you can apply on court.
In his book, Moran says:. To develop into a winning tennis player, [however,] you must first and foremost become consistent with all of your shots. This means being able to keep the ball down the center of the court with as much ease as you unzip your racket bag. So how do you become more consistent during a match? How do you cut down on your unforced errors? How do you go from losing a match to not losing a match? Here are my tips to help you out:. You need to think about how the points in your match are being won and lost.
They may not know the exact numbers and percentages. Or are you giving them free points by making too many unforced errors? How do you become more consistent? Well, practicing a lot would be a good place to start. But, in the middle of a match, with the shots you currently possess, you can still become more consistent by playing it safer.
This may mean taking something off your serve to cut back on missed first serves or double faults. It may mean hitting a safer, more consistent return to cut back on returns that fly out or get poached.
It may mean playing a lob game for a little while, to give yourself more time during shots and to take away the fast-paced game your opponent is winning with. It may mean hitting short shots or low, slice shots to move your opponent around. Whatever it is you have to do, you need to implement a safer, more consistent game that will help reduce your errors.
You may have to use this safer, more consistent Plan B to finish out your match. Or you may only need to use it long enough to yourself back into the match at which point you can return to your Plan A.
My third and final tip for not losing your tennis match, is specific to doubles and that is to communicate with your partner. This is probably the best tip for any doubles match but it is especially important in this situation as it may be your partner who is making the unforced errors and thereby not winning your match.
Being confrontational about this is obviously never a good idea. I want to thank Jonny for emailing me with his great comment and for being a Tennis Fixation follower.
