Ugh, it's so painful. I played this weekend in a league match, singles ladies 40+ 3.5. I won the first set 6-2, then lost the second set 4-6 and she won in the tiebreak. Ugh ugh ugh. Hints, tips, thoughts? This HAS to be mental, right? I mean I won more games overall, so clearly I'm skilled enough against the particular player. I *think* early in set #2, I lost a few stupid points and thought to myself, Uh oh, better work on that consistency, and then I abandoned the freer game I had been playing in set #1 and was more tight and careful, just placing the shots vs really hitting the deeper baseline balls that were giving her trouble earlier. Other thoughts? Mental tricks for this situation? In the first set, it was clear I was winning easily (sometimes you can have a 6-2 score but it looks closer; this match looked more lopsided at the beginning.) For set #2, we were neck and neck the entire time then she got it at 5-4 and won. Then I think the fact that I lost the 2nd set after winning the first so easily was still in my head because even though I hate tiebreakers for a 3rd set, I usually do win them. This was the first tiebreaker I've lost in awhile. Thoughts? Ideas? Tips? Share my pain? Thanks!
