In my view, aiming for "killer" shots is a mistake. You have the advantage in every neutral-game scenario except one: her targeting your backhand with her forehand. Hence you should focus on constructing the point better instead of hitting through her. I think the best approach is to focus on the neutral game and rally to her backhand. If all she does is ...

A passing play will still open the field more than a running play. Typically if a running play for an extra point is called the offense will opt for a "jumbo package" Also called "jumbo", "heavy", "full house" and other similar names, this formation is used exclusively in short-yardage situations, and especially near the goal line. This formation ...

I know drafting might come into play too but to simplify things, let's forget about drafting You can't forget about drafting because it is a huge effect in road racing; quoting from How much benefit do we really get from drafting? in Cycling Tips: Studies have shown drag reductions of between 27% and 50% for riders that are drafting When a team in the ...

Carrying extra fuel adds more weight For simplicity, let's assume only 1 pit stop, which will occur at either lap 30 or lap 59 in a 60-lap race. If you don't refuel until lap 59, you're spending the first part of the race lugging around all the fuel that you won't even need until the second half of the race. Starting the race with 59 laps' worth of fuel, ...

There are several reasons for that. Speed. If you're faster than the one before you and just fail to overtake them you stay out longer. Let them pit first and use the extra laps to gain some seconds without them slowing you down. Then you can pit and hope to come back on the track in front of your opponent. The other way round. If you're obviously slower ...

I play left wing in soccer and believe me you have no idea how effective a simple but well performed cut or turn is when sprinting down the sideline. You don't need anything fancy, just sprint, use the outside of you foot to cut away from the sideline and behind the defender into wide open space. However, executing this takes practice, when you are ...

The defender has to watch the striker to react to his movements and the striker, running towards the defender tries to trick him out. The striker must therefore try to "deceive" the defender with movements in order to get through on the other side where he has deceived the defender. What if the striker fakes left, then right and then left? So he plays the ...

Your hypothesis about the strongmen conserving energy is certainly one part of it. A few times in World's Strongest Man, I've seen a competitor do just enough reps to take the lead, and then just put the bar down and walk away even though they could probably do more. They would also be reducing their risk of injury, by not straining themselves for more reps. ...

Since you hit high topspin balls, try to make your opponent run around. I.e. hit the ball where your opponent isn’t, and try to force errors out of her. Take advantage of her attacking shots, and hit back deep balls. Like @Arrow said, focus on the neutral game.
