OK, back on topic. I don't know that there's any substitute for experience in this case. But if you are saying that you beat other players in casual games but not in match play, then maybe you should try to approach matches the same as a casual game, and not put too much pressure on yourself. Obviously there are some points that are bigger than others, but if lesser players are beating you on those, maybe you're overthinking and playing differently from your norm.

Sorry but I still can't get over how somebody can be thinking "because" and have it come out as "barbecue", that is just amazing.

Get more match experience and eat lots of BBQ.

There are no shortcuts.

You can't replace playing against a variety of people with various styles, approaches, and strengths and weaknesses. You have to play matches.

My advice in the near term: Go for winners and hit big shots whenever possible hoping to end points fast because once it becomes apparent to your opponent that you lack match experience, the first thing he will do is start working the geometry of the court against you leaving you out of position easily.

Exactly right. This used to happen to me all the time, and I couldn't get over it, but I eventually just played more tournaments.

1. just play more tournaments. tournament matches are different from practice matches.
2. when at practice, try playing from different scores - like who wins three points in a row wins the game, or when you serve start from 0-30 so you have to concentrate to come back from behind, or start with 30-0 so you concentrate on winning the next two points and close the game. same can be applied for return games. each and every point as well as each and every gamestyle of your opponent requires a different tactical approach. practice this and then hope / work for applying it also in tournament play. good luck and have fun.

There really is no substitute for going into a tournament feeling confident then getting thrashed around by the No. 2 or 3 seed. If you get lucky you can play the No.1 seed and really learn some lessons (Unless the No.1 seed sucks and got the seeding b/c he plays tournaments every week and wins a match or two vs. noobs).

Its all a learning experience, you win and you lose. You need the experience to learn how to win.
