Don’t panic if you mess up and hit a short ball. It doesn’t have to be the end of the point. There’s still some things you can do to recover and finish strong!
As soon as you hit the short ball, take a step back. Think about where your ball would go if your opponent hit a short ball to you. If you can predict where your opponent will be hitting the ball next, you can put yourself in the best position on the court.
Once you get to the ball, focus on the highest percentage shot. Make your opponent work for the point!
