Take away their strengths

All players have their favourite shots, but think about what it feels like when your best shot is not working. The best way to get in your opponent’s heads is to take away their strength, so they feel like they have no options. This does not mean that you should hit easy balls to their stronger side and hope they miss. Try to attack your opponent’s strengths by hitting big, making them play on the run and changing the pace. It is a brave tactic, but works if implemented correctly.
