I noticed that I focus on the power of my strokes. I spend all my focus to one powerful shot and if the opponent returns it, then I usually don't ready to next strokes, lose focus and usually lose rallies. All my next strokes will be blocking and passive game. I think that's why I like blocking & powerful blades. Recently I tried allround blade, with allround blade I felt like I have no guns vs armed opponent. Opponents easily returned my strokes and that was very annoying for me, because I used to win the points with powerful strokes, with allround blade I couldn't do it. Thanks to allround blade I noticed that my game is not based on consistency.
What do you suggest? How to give up focus on only one big stroke?
You can still focus on playing stronger shots but think about your balance before and after the strokes. If you can do that then you will be able to recover for the next ball.
If you watch the better players you will notice this balance. That is why footwork and balance are so important in this game because it is often not just about one shot but a series of shots to win a point.
