If you want to hit more winners, taking more chances isn't the answer, you have to learn to construct a point. Let the point develop, open up the court, don't force something that isn't there.
You're right. I'm still in the early stages of being able to execute point construction. Sometimes when things are going well I feel like I just have to "go for it." haha. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
