In this episode, Dr. Cohn answers a question from a reader about how to stop pushing and instead switch to playing more offensive tennis. Here’s the question of the week:
LUCY: I’ve won a lot of matches pushing the ball and driving all my opponents insane! Now, I finally learned to hit a forehand and I have a complete game in practice. BUT when I compete, I go back to my default mode of pushing. I know I can win pushing. But I can’t beat the top players doing it. How do I change my mindset from defense to offence in matches?
