    Cool Play without rhythm

    Hello,

    I'm an intermediate player and sometime play versus worse players than me in tournaments.
    The problem is, when the level is very different, that they don't have a good rhythm and personally, I have to walk because the rhythm is too slow. But this is very difficult in fact to play like this and I loose too many rallys : my opponent is slow and I can't play, it's difficult to explain but I do many mistakes, and don't have good feeling.

    So, I would like to know how to enjoy a slow game and stop mistakes.

    Thank you in advance

    interesting

    i found myself losing to 2 guys in training who are clearly worse than me overall.

    it seems that i cannot play at the level i use to play vs them and even lose the sets

    very strange thing, but only played vs them 3 games so i thought i made have had just a bad streak or my lack of experience

    You can still maintain your speed and rhythm. You'll get there sooner, then you can do deceptive hold or double action shots just for the fun of it. That's what I do when faced with weaker players.

    it's just a mental thing. You don't feel pushed in the rally so yuo don't focus - loss of concentration = shuttle flies out/in the net. Just keep up your focus and concentrate on the shot and your movement

    Because you were playing their games, not yours. Get serious and finish them off.

    Lucky for your opponents I guess, because I like to toy with my prey for a bit before the kill.

    toying around with weaker opponents is so disrespectful...
