How tenacious are you? I ask this as I’m somewhat of a beginner to tennis. Not a beginner to sport competition, Played the usual, Football, Basketball, Baseball back in HS, Then played baseball at a D1 collage. So anyway, started playing tennis about 18 months ago, then in 2010 started playing league matches and such. I have noticed over the course of the year many times when I’m up say 40-love or 40 -15 in a game my opponent will sort of just “let” me win the game. Putting very little effort into the last point. I assume the thought process there is save some energy, pace yourself and get em’ in the next game…But damn, my brain won’t let me do this…I play every point like it’s my last point I’m ever gonna play in tennis forever. I play like this as I want to respect the game of tennis and my opponent. I feel “cheated” when my opponent “gives up” on a point no matter what the score. Am I completely talking out of school here? Should I back off when It seems hopeless I have any chance of winning? Would love to hear players thoughts . God Bless.
