A small change in tennis tactics can make a huge difference in the results of a tennis match. Sometimes the answers to winning the match are right in front of you, but you just need to stop and think. Use the changeover to ask yourself a few quick questions and think about how you can respond when you get back on the court. Be your own tennis coach!

Typical Questions You Might Ask Yourself on the Changeover

Does your opponent have patterns like attacking a certain area on court?
Does your opponent keep forcing you into a specific pattern?

I am not advocating changing a winning game, but the better you learn how to anticipate your opponents next shot by recognizing their patterns; the better you can get in position and prepare for the next shot. This will make it easier for you to hit safer stronger shots whether you are winning or losing at that point.
