You might have heard the phrase “Play one point at a time”, which some tennis players assume means that all tennis points are to be treated as equal. Our tennis tip is that there are lots of big points during a tennis match that you need to be aware of to make sure that you put the odds of winning in your favor. What is a big point in tennis? There is at least one big point in almost every game throughout each set. The 5th point of a game is considered a big point. Not every game has a 5th point because some games are won on the 4th point at 40-Love. The rest of the games in a set have a 5th point, and I was trained to give the 5th point extra attention and effort. Due to the way tennis is scored, the 5th point of each game is critical.
What Is A Big Point In Tennis?
There are three combination of the 5th point in a game of tennis which include 30-30 (or Deuce), 40-15, 15-40. Note that all deuce points are to be played as a big point even though it is not technically a 5th point. Setup a trigger for yourself to make sure that you are focused on these big points by using the following tip.
When you play a big point, train yourself to focus by saying “Big Point” to yourself which will help you mentally prepare for the point. Once you start using this form of tennis training to trigger to get yourself to focus, you will see better results and win more games by putting more pressure on your opponent during the big points in both singles and doubles.
Big Point, So What Do You Do?
The 5th point is a common place for the Big Points Strategy Used by Top Tennis Pros to be used. Plan on winning these big points, and play your best tennis by using your highest percentage and best tennis shots. Do not try anything new or risky because the last thing you want to do is give these big points away without a fight. You want to keep the pressure on your opponent not let off due to a loss of concentration or give up due to being down 15-40 for example. You are trying to either turn 30-30 (or Deuce) into your AD, recover from 15-40, or close out the game. There are more big points during a set of tennis; but if you concentrate on the 5th point for now, you will win more games, sets, and ultimately matches.
Big Doubles Points?
What is a big point in tennis doubles matches? What court does the 5th (and Deuce) points get served to in doubles? It is the forehand (Deuce) court, so this should help you determine which player should play the forehand court because they will return serve on the 5th point. I like to win the big points when returning serve in doubles and I am sure you do as well, so you need to determine who will return serve better in the forehand court based on your current opponents to be able to get those big points more often. I see most doubles teams put their stronger player in the backhand (AD) court for some reason, but I recommend the stronger returner start in the forehand (Deuce) court to win more of the big points in doubles.
