1. Consistent and focussed practice every day.
2. Keeping your fitness levels at the peak is very important. follow a proper diet plan and stick to it till your big day. Focus and discipline are of utmost importance for any player to attain success.
3. Even professionals sometimes all have experienced that feeling of insecurity and fear when we are about to put our skills to the test.
Andre Agassi once famously said, “if you don’t practice you don’t deserve to win.”
not only preparing with fitness and volley game practice for the tournament day it is also important to be prepared mentally, which is actually more important than your physical preparation. Even if you are physically fit and know the game in and out but when you are mentally weak, there are high chances to miss your goal during your performance.
the next step after preparation comes presentation, presenting before your coaches and the audience watching you on screen or in person, you need to showcase that you are a professional and are serious about the game. and that starts from your head to toe. keeping your shoes clean and keeping your clothes in order and being well-groomed.
you must also ensure you have your gear ready with you that could be your protection gear or any kind of support systems you need during your games.
Finally, remember a famous quote “Great things happen to those who don’t stop believing, trying, learning and being grateful.”
