    Performance anxiety?

    On the flip side, do you also feel the same pressure if you know your opponent is a tough one?

    Sounds like failure anxiety...where your fear of failing to win (especially when you should easily win) affects your performance. Maybe you need to be super aggressive right from the very beginning of the game. Winning several points in a row may boost your confidence that you can do it. And after that don't let up your aggression until you win it.

    talk about overconfidence, but thats usually one of the factors you have to consider with dealing with a lesser or weaker opponent. But I think what gets you pressured is the mere mentality that you have nothing to gain against a weaker opponent while a weaker opponent has everything to gain having a match against you, that is official bragging rights if your opponent wins, or at least having a good score and experience against you.

    what i suggest is having a different frame of mind, that is, thinking and believing that all your opponents are equal. thinking taht there's no such thing as a weak or good opponent, all of them are equal. they are all up to get you tired, earn as much points as they can against you, and maybe shove your own racket into your own behind, well the last one is just me so it isnt really true.

    what im trying to say is that all players have their own strengths and weaknesses. in a match all you have to do is exploit their weakness and win. think of every match as a unique challenge that you have to deal with regardless of whether your opponents is just an amateur from the streets or your up against lin dan. do your best whoever it is on the other side of the court, and i promise you'll always come out victorious, not against your opponent, but against yourself

    Hi macazteeg its me again . I have a question that needs to be answered . Why is it that some times im not ussually in my top form . When im not in my top form my stamina drastically decreases and i cant focus or return shots properly . But when im at my top form i could even beat a state player and im just at a district level .

    I have a similar problem with ChaChaTea on page 5. If I play a greater opponent, I am able to perform so much better than I normally can, and when I play a lesser opponent, my skills sucked. It's like I'm on a totally different skill level, even though the 2 games can be 5 min apart. I really liked Macazteeg's suggestion on believing that all my opponents are equal, and that we just have to find their weakness and exploit it. I'll definitely try it out on the court! Anybody else has a similar situation?

    The difference is incentive.

    When faced with a greater opponent, there is more incentive to survive so as not to be embarrassed, or even try to beat them for bragging rights.

    When faced with a lesser opponent, most of us civil people do not try to annihilate them... maybe out of courtesy or pity. But guess what? On the other side of the court, they are feeling the incentive to perform because you happen to be the greater opponent! And here you are trying to be "nice".

    So, bottom line, as macazteeg said, treat all your opponents equally. And don't be afraid to be "mean" if it's a lesser opponent. Just put them out of their misery and get it over with...
