so here we've a type of tournament where the winners of the preliminary rounds (first 4 places) face off against the winners of the previous years' winners (first 4 places of the championship rounds of P.Y) in the championship round.. we (as a team) had secured the first place in the prelims but lost in the quarter finals to a much much lower team.. our first player played really well but I on the other hand lost the game 3-2 despite having the lead 2-0. The same thing happened last year against the same team and I can't figure out what is causing the problem :( the player I had faced did not have any technique but just used to yell when he got a point. Everyone in the stadium was shocked when we lost to the team. I need to know how to overcome this problem of mine coz I had just defeated 3 players with a very good technique and also I do not want to repeat this mistake once again.
Playing players with weaker technique can sometimes be more difficult because you are not used to this type of shot, whereas you are used to practising and playing against players with 'good' technique.
I think the best thing is to find some unorthodox players during the year that you can play against to get used to the different style. Often you need to play with more margin for error because they will not put as much topspin on the ball and give you different spins. Don't stress about it too much. It is something that happens to all of us when we play different styles that we aren't used to.
