Hi Shivam,

I often find that players tend to think that players who don't play a regular style are not good players and think they can beat them easily. However when you get into a match situation they actually are good players. I think part of the solution is to treat them as good players and work on improving your game so you can overcome these strange styles. Once you improve your technique you'll be able to over power this type of player.

Another problem can be that players get nervous during a match. Take a look at our questions on mental preparation for some ways to overcome this.

Dont serve directly when its your turn,wait for a few seconds,you know the placement,spin.speed. I dont know now how many times i have shot in the net because of just serve in the first chance. And also the opponent dont know what u are going to do .
