Let's say I am able to defeat person A. Person A is much stronger than person B.

So it means I can probably defeat person B, right?

Well, I lost. Person B had a lot of surprises such as a fast long serve to the forehand, and a fast backspin ball to the backhand.

So, I asked myself; "How do I defeat this kind of player?". The answer then popped into my mind. I needed to adapt.

I was able to adapt to his game, but not fast enough to defeat him.

Is there anyway for someone to adapt against an opponent faster?

Hi Romeo,

As you have found results don’t always follow logic.  I think it is about thinking during the game and trying to analyse what is happening for them to win points but also for you to win points.

If you do find something, go to the Vault and note it down so that you remember it for next time you play that same player.

I have also once been solving this problem.

I lost to player A without scoring a point,but lost 2:11,3:11,2:11 with player B,who effortlessy beated player A 11:0,11:1,11:3

And about the Vault-can you guide me how to use it?

I know that this is some kind of a notepad of strategies,but I am quite stupid boy so I am not very able to find out how to use it on  my own

 I see. I think I should play with different people to work on that :)
