Hi Shubham,

The main thing is you attitude towards the matches.  Think about learning as much as you can and playing your best weather than the end results.  Think about each point you are playing and that you can do to play it well.

Monitor your emotional levels  during the matches and during the day as well.  Staying calm is ideal, at a level that will allow you to play at your best.

We cover this and more in our Sports Psychology section of the site.  Take a look thorough there and see what you can discover.
