Hi Pingskills ;-)
I would like to know the routine you have to follow in the day of the tournament
How I should prepare the match if it starts early in the morning. What if the match takes place in the afternoon, or in the evening.
What should the player do: Wake up early?, do some exercise?...)
In the end: How long the player should be awake and working before the match.
Thanks in advance
I think a player needs to be awake about 3 hours before a match. It is important that if it is an early morning match that you have sweated and really had the heart rate up high before you start. A jog or really good practice session is ideal. I would say you need to hit for a minimum of 30 minutes and in that time, do some footwork, and also get to playing some points.
If the match is in the afternoon or evening I like to have had a hit in the morning and then rested. You will find your touch will be a lot better in the evening if you have already had a hit. It doesn't have to be long but even a 20 minute to 40 minute session will do you good.
