forget about it

when i use my ball machine i can't miss a shot but in matches (especially doubles) i seem interested in what the guys on the other side of the net that are waiting for the ball are doing.
how do i ignore my opponents and just stay focused on the ball?
please help me so i can beat you!!!

But seriously, It's right to look at the opoonent sometimes, just before serve for example.

Re: forget about it

If you are the non returning partner of a returning pair, you should be concentrating on the net man, to watch his move-not the serve/ball. Otherwise, just watch the ball literally the whole time!
