My son started to focus more on not missing shots and less on winning points - and lost the match..
How should he counter this behavior? Turn the match into a yelling contest?
If your son has a great drop shot have him pull the kid to the net and nail him then yell out "YESSS" then repeat as much as needed thats the quickest cure . If he does not have a dropper teach him one .
