Hi Alois. I just registered for a national singles tournament coming up in 2 weeks. My coach told me that I should replace the rubber before the tournament. But I still feel that my rubbers are still quite grippy so I feel like I shouldn't replace it. And everytime I replace my rubbers, I need quite a lot of time to adjust. What do you suggest?

Hi Jasper,

In general I don't recommend players change rubber too close to a tournament especially if they are not used to playing with brand new rubbers.

Focus on playing your best. Prepare well. It doesn’t matter the level of your opponents.
