    Hehe, I'm in a "sucking" rut right now for a few days. Hopefully it'll wear off by the tournament in two days, haha.

    the important point is not to suck on the tournament days

    I find that I my suckyness is largely dictated to by the suckyness of the games I am playing. If I start a evening practise with a pants game I do not play well that night unless I take an hour out doing routines. In a tournament or a match I am alright until I play somebody weak, then my game collapses for the remainder of the day. I also cannot play well for two consecutive days, so games the day before a tournament are banned. This is what I have convinced myself works over the past few years.

    Default BIG tip

    If you are playing on a doubles club night, before you play your first game, if you get the opportunity, play a competitive game of singles flat out (with your partner if if you have one)
    When you get on to play your doubles game you will be at your peak, and your opponents won't be able to react in time if they haven't done the same.
    Try it and see!

    Default Re: BIG tip

    I would be so wasted that I probably wouldn't be able to do much the rest of the night ;D

    But you are right, if you are in good shape and you can use the game of singles with your partner to warm each other up.

    Default Re: BIG tip

    That's what you think though, you'll be wasted
    But I found that it actually boosts your energy because you're playing on such a high
    The difference between playing a game and the normal club night warm up is you don't get the mental aspect, the adaptation to the court and the fine tuning of your strokes.
    If you play a game of doubles without this you probably won't get it all night.
    Give it a go!

    Default Re: BIG tip

    i agree! i actually find that to be true as well. it seems like a good games of singles really loosens up all the tension built up on the muscles.

    and to add, look for a good warmup partner. i find that some warm up partner warms me up better than others.

    Default Re: BIG tip and its theory.

    No doubt this works. I'd like to take the view that the reason is one's muscles and brain have been tuned up to 'match speed' (faster pace) rather than boosting one's energy levels. Physiolgically, there will be more adrenaline circulating and greater blood flow to various organs which would not be so in a limited warmed up state.

    Default Re: BIG tip

    true, there is a definite improvement in your double games if one play a single game before. Just have at least 1 one rest/hydration prior to the real double match. Prior to the real double match, practice the quick drive strokes.

    Kwun, u r so lucky that u have so many partners to choose from to warm up
