I tend to play it safe too often and don't take as many chances as i like. Too often i feel like i fear that i'll make an agressive shot and i'll miss the table or it'll hit the net. For example, there are many times i can remember instead of counter-looping a serve or a long backspin ball i end up playing it safe and pushing. What goes through ones mind to get over the fear of attacking or the proclivity of playing it safe? What can one do to mentally get over that?
I think there needs to be a determination to make the first attack in the rally. As you progress you will start to see the benefits of doing this.
I think practice games is the best time to start this habit.
