I'm having a really, really difficult time translating my training performance into tournament performance. Its much worse this year than ever before. I train waay more this year as well. When playing in tournaments my level of play always drops to meet that of my opponent. My tactics become awful, my shots unreliable and my overhead stroke changes b/c my timing seems to always be off. I feel like in tournaments I play to not make mistakes whereas practice I play to win. Also in practice I generally play against players of a much higher caliber than I end up playing against in tournaments. In practice I can beat these players but in tournaments I lose to people I really should not lose to. I thought that this problem would go away with experience but it seems like its getting worse. I am currently looking for a good sports psychologist in calgary. This problem is frusterating and embarrassing.
