Sometimes you just get beat, but I'd like to have a rule in mind as to when to get very serious about making a major change.
I think the end of a set is the time. Because this is the time when it is legal for you to actually change sides with your partner. Sometimes, moving your partner from forehand to backhand is the change that is needed. Many times, that isn't it. But the new set is a good time to refocus and apply a strategy adjustment.
