Dear Alois and Jeff,

Recently I've been practicing quite the same the routine with my team, mainly footwork and 3rd ball attacks. During the practice, I can execute the moves perfectly fine, but I could not perform the same way during tournaments and matches like how I do during practice (Ex: Hitting the ball too flat when I'm suppose to do a topspin drive instead). Do you have any suggestions I can try out?  

Sorry if the question is a bit unclear.

Hi Wilson,

Sometimes this happens when you are faced with receiving the ball anywhere rather than in set positions.

In training try to do some more random drills were you don’t know where the ball is coming to.

So you would suggest I go for more random drills rather than set routines?

Yes, I think that would help.
