Yeah same here. Analysis is for maximizing your existing skills, I'm more interested in improving my skills right now. That means in matches I may do things I know is more likely to lose points, but I need to do it in order to improve.
It has - but I'm feeling way more positive that a few weeks ago tbh even if the results haven't shown. I had changed to many things, equipment, serves, positioning - and listening to too many people. Ive gone back on a lot of things atm and I'm playing better even if results aren't going my way.
I bolded some text above.
This is also a hugely important thing in TT.
One may not win games or matches, but may have improved astronomically.
Look at how one makes shot decisions, how they construct points, how they handle pressure/adversity, how they attempt the shots they should when and how they should, the quality of the shots (spin, pace, depth/penetration, suddenness, control, placement, position/leverage, power, control of strike zone), how much shots trouble opponents, how much pressure you place opponent under, how they are calm, how they can adapt to what opponents give, how they can discern impact and prepare/execute shot, how they can move to ball on time on balance ready to strike, how they control grip pressure, how they make adjustments, how they adjust to opponent's adjustments, how they stick to a game plan and change when needed, how much belief they show in a shot/game plan, how well they manage or control a point, how well they back off power when needed, how they see and read the opponent and take advantage, how they find the opponent's middle...
I would take noticeable improvement in one to one hundred of these areas over a match win (won by animal fighting) any day of the week and three times on tourney Sunday.
