Tips To Combat The “Let Up” In Your Match

Hey everyone!

Now that we are knee deep into Fall USTA competition, it’s a great time to analyze your match play and red flag any trends that you may need to work on, no matter what level you play. Watching my teams compete, I find that many players have a tendency to “let-up” after winning the first set. Rather than maintaining their drive, they’ll relax after that first set win and play less aggressively. What they don’t realize is that while they are letting up their opponents are starting to dig deep to make a comeback, and soon they find themselves down 3-0 or 4-1 in the second set and going into panic mode. They tighten up and lose confidence, which could cost them the second set, and ultimately the match.

Here are a couple of things you can do to keep a let-up from happening so you can close out more matches!


As always, my goal is to give all of you the tips and tools you need to be the best tennis players you can be. If you have any questions about rules, or situations that happened to you, please tell me about it in the comments section below and I’ll address it in a future video!

Also, be sure and share my posts with your tennis friends, and connect with me on FacebookTwitterInstagramand Youtube!
