Concentrate on Your Game and Avoid Hitting Into the Net
Too many times the tennis player is so worried about what their opponent is doing that they continually make mistakes in their own game. Thinking about what your opponent will do next can cause you to make errors in your shot. This typically occurs when you see someone hit the ball into the net. Focus has been lost and an unforced error occurs.
Most ground stroke errors are into the net. To remedy this all a tennis player has to do is simply aim higher and add more slice and topspin to the shot. Make your opponent play rather than allow them to gain points on your unforced errors. Another option to avoid hitting into the net is the drop shot. An effective drop shot should slice up a good five or six feet and clear the net by two to three feet.
Bottom line....concentrate on your tennis game more and your opponents less to avoid hitting into the net and unforced errors.
