I had recently taken part in a tournament and it was my first one ever though I have been playing for 2 years now. The fact is that I was really nervous about the tournament and couldn't do very well. Though I won the 1st round with a 3-1 victory I was totally swept out by a shakehander in the 2nd round 3-0. The hardest thing was his serve....he spun it virtually on one side but the spin was on other. And the other thing is that I was no match to his loops. Can you please tell me how to perform better on such conditions?

Thank you:)

Hi Sandesh,

It is great that you have entered a tournament.  This will help you to get better just by playing them and seeing other players.

It is great that you came up against a good server because that is the best way to learn how to return better serves. The more times you can do that the better.  The same applies for his topspins.

Try to work on your service returns by getting some players to serve to you as much as possible.  Return from as many different players as you can.  This way you will start to learn the different serves and how to return them.

Enteer the next tournament you can and see how much you will improve in a year.
