Hi PingSkills!

Every single time I play in an "official" (graded) match, I get paired up with people I can win against. Only in free play. But this is a match. Before the match, my mind was thinking of doing a sidespin serve. But at the match, I always used backspin cry. Whenever I try to think of the opponent and how to defeat him/her, I see people's eyes on me like "Hey man, do a side spin serve" I tried and the ball bounced. On the ground. And when I DO get it right, its not the same amount of spin I put at practice. I always tell myself "I've faced the strongest players in this club. I can do this." But ended up failing anyway. "Next time, I will do this, do that..." at the match,"BALL BALL BALL BALL BACKSPIN BACKSPIN BOOM BOOM UNSUCCESSFUL NOOOOO"

Sorry for the long read. Please give me some tips?

Hi,

Take a look at our Sports Psychology section.  The lesson on Recognise Your Feelings will help to start with.  For the Premium members the lesson on Activation Level will also help.
