Hello All, I've a dilemma that's driving me a bit nuts, and it's a terrible habit which I can't seem to shake off. My badminton consists of one game of singles once a week with a pal, which we've been doing now for about 7 years I think. Before that I'd played at many clubs around my area, but I really enjoy the singles game with my pal. The problem I have is watching the shuttle instead of my pal during our games. And he seems to just beat me all the time. And tonight was another 4 - 0 defeat which sounds bad, but the first two games had only two points in them, and frustratingly this seems to happen too often. So, how can I change my thinking or inner talk to watch my opponent instead of the direction of the shuttle? Much appreciate any suggestions.
