Hi Teo,

At this stage take a deep breath and then think about the tactic you need to use for the next point.  This will happen better with more practice.  It is god you are recognising that there is a problem there.  Now with some focus and practice you will be able to fix it.

You should also take a look through previous Ask the Coach questions. If you look through the questions in the 'Mental Preparation' category you will find lot of other people with a similar issue and other suggestions to help with the issue.
