Anyway, I am quite excited since I have some new goals now... it's great to have something new to work on.
I know you are a pretty good player, but 6-4 to a solid 4.5 is not a bad score for you in that set is it?
Glad it exposed some areas for you to work on and that is definitely part of the plan here. Also remember that the margin of error on these targets is to help you to let loose the power and spin, so don't get carried away with hitting the targets. Tagging a ball well and flying the long cone target by inches is not a bad thing!
