“Cut back on your errors”

Most of the points in a tennis match are over after only three or four hits. At every level, the majority of points are lost and not won. This means that most of the points are won due to errors rather than winners.

 

The best way to understand errors is to learn the four mistakes in tennis. They are:

Del Potro on the comeback, defeats Lopez narrowly.

Del Potro looked sharp enough, frustrating Lopez at the beginning. His trademark forehand and rock solid two hander all seemed intact, along with that thundering serve.

The other thing to note is how Federer is not crowding the baseline in these rallies. It is true that Federer had the better tempo at the beginning and Nadal weathers the storm like he usually does. Federer even had break point to win the first set. But his backhand in the…
