I get very tensed between 8~10 battle. I'm a defender and it's tough for me whether to attack or defend.
I feel pressure against new players how to cope up with this?

Hi Saatvik,

It's great you have recognised that you are feeling pressure. That is the first step. We have a sports psychology course that I highly recommend. It will show you a number of ways to deal with this situation.

One thing to keep in mind is that pressure is something you put on yourself. You need to try and treat each point the same. So play this point as though it was the very first point of the match. It's when we start thinking about winning and losing that the worry creeps in which can really affect your game.
