    Jonas,

    What are you like at playing singles with friends (social and international)? I find being a doubles player that i try to attack too often and find myself all over the place...nothing better than doubles i feel ;)
    It is funny tho trying to see me compete against higher level singles players, do you tend to avoid it?

    Never!!

    Hi Matt!!

    I don´t play singles anymore. When I was a junior I stopped and chose to play mixed and doubles instead.

    Many of my teammates from KMB often ask me if I want to play singles against them but I´ve made it a rule for myself not to play.

    When this is said I´m not bad at all. I think I could ok if I started concentrating on singles and gave up mensdoubles. That would not be a wise choice, do you think?

    It´s not that easy to just play singles when I´ve not been used to it for such a long time. Because, you move completely different in singles than in the doubles.

    I´ve actually played one singles tournament as a senior. South African open I played all three categories and won them all.

    Kind Regards

    Jonas
