Re: What do you do when facing break points?

I like to go all out facing break points. I face them all the time lol. It makes me feel better that I can rely on a good return game for the next game.

Re: What do you do when facing break points?

I hit a safe first serve, because if it's a second serve, then because of nerves, it's easy to hit a DF, which would be super irritating on a BP
And body serves work too!

Re: What do you do when facing break points?

Depends. If I have been serving to their weaker side a lot, I sometimes like to go for a shock factor and serve to their strength. But for the most part I make them try to win that point with their worst shot, constantly hitting into that corner of the court until I get a ball I can put away.

Go for first serve (miss it most the time )

Then push, slice, push some more, and try to use a lot of topspin on my forehand and keep the balls high and in the corners or short on an angle

Re: What do you do when facing break points?

Go defensive and not let any ball get away no matter how shitty my return will be. Got to get them to hit an off balance one at some point, and then try hit a winner at some stage. I also avoid my backhand like the plague.

Re: What do you do when facing break points?

1. Get the first serve in
2. Get a mid-court forehand and follow it into the net
3. Botch easy volley

Folding like a cheap tent

Trying to go for the Ace, then a pussy 2nd serve, which is in 50% a DF and when I'm in the rally, I'm pushing harder than Wozniacka

Re: What do you do when facing break points?

Play the game,not the scoreboard. A good rule this but I tended to ignore it in crucial points.and attacked.

Re: What do you do when facing break points?

I just take it as one more point. And it depends on the person I'm playing. If I can be aggressive, I'm going to be. If the other person is more aggressive than me, then I play with caution. But I remind myself, it's just a point and Imma take it.

I try to treat every point the same, to the extent of reminding myself before each point 'deuce court point, my serve' or 'ad court point, his serve' to try remove the importance of score.

Works sometimes, but not enough
