Handling pressure
 
So I have this problem when I play, if I'm just rallying my shots are fine my technique is really good and everything is consistent, I can pound the ball deep and rarely over hit. However, as soon as I play for points or a friendly match it all goes wrong my timing is all too late my shot are either too deep or hit the net I just can't get anything to work. But if we stop and go back to just rallying everything is ok again. What can I do to solve this??

There isn't an easy answer really. I've played so much, I am used to just going out there in playing my game. Just tell yourslef to stay relaxed and just have fun a play the game. Don't overthink the situation. Just keep it simple. The worst thing that could happen is that you could lose. Stay focused and maybe smile a few times and keep bouncing on your feet. :yeah:

take your time on the bench + make the player wait for you.

Just play without any thoughts ;)
Try to understand where the ball will be before it passes the net,then move in that direction and hit the shot as you know...stay relaxed,especially in friendly match :p
