Consider this an open call for advice/tips. Essentially, I'm hovering around the 4.0-4.5 level (I think). On my worse days, I'm a solid B, on my best a B+. I've gotten over the testosterone poisoning and have finally gotten patient enough to wait for openings and not try stupid stuff just because. Though, to be honest, most men at 4.0 and some at 4.5 (ie. the dumb ones) don't even require that much as they're typically too impatient and would rather "dictate." Anyway, when ever I've played against better players (teaching pros and the occasional division I baseline basher), I've found it's not so much the case that their strokes are clearly superior to mine (assuming I've got time to setup, of course - and don't worry, I KNOW their strokes really are better). Rather, I find that I simply CAN'T HURT THEM. Shots that usually don't come back or typically result in weak replies are at the very least neutral, and if I'm in really deep doo doo - offensive (for example, the baseline basher's flick half-volley winners from the baseline - AUGGGHHHH!). In other words, my game doesn't degrade gracefullly as I go up the ladder. I win easily and often - right up until I run into someone who can actually play defense. Then I get stomped. So, the problem: most people I run into don't pressure my movement. Stand around, shuffle to anticipate, and most times they give me an error anyway. So I get even more lazy with my movement. And on and on. In short, How do you practice moving better? Is the answer simply to focus on one's footwork even when you don't need to? Or should I search out players who'll punish me if I don't start paying attention?
