How many of you watched the men's final at the Australian open? what a show!

The question is about mindset. I was mesmerized at the near perfect footwork and shot execution, it was like table tennis in slow motion.

Yes! our lawn tennis little brothers can share insight so their hard labor serve the table tennis firmament.

Often in table tennis we think of sequences, drills, points and the scope is too wide while those tennis champions seem to say:

ONE SHOT AT A TIME

Those athletes can grind it down to the smallest detail.

We hear often "one point at a time",  we should think more about "one shot at a time". there is a mindset switch as we get into the point, from the strategy to the tactics to the point to the shot.

It's just a little tidbit I was chewing on. Then there is the follow shot. Should  shots always go in couples?

Tennis is much slower than table tennis, that's why it's easier to take your time.
