“Doubles can decide a team match”…

geralWas a Great Doubles High School tournament….In a few days, results and score points…

The phase above: “Doubles can decide a team match”, I heard from Jorgen Roskopf – Head Coach of German Team – in Dortmund 2012 , World Championship, while he was talking to another coach at the backstage. It’s really true! If you are playing a Olympic Team System and you don’t have a good doubles team, your chances decrease a lot.

On January 28th we saw very good singles players having a hard time adjusting their game style according their partner. This happens because it is not commom for people to practice doubles. I’m not talking about just techniques… FRIENDSHIP is very important in doubles too which means : You have to know your partner like the palm of your hand. A perfect conection is required to be a good doubles team.

Well the tournament is done and some upsets are registered at the desk. We will know soon if the doubles will affect the final results…

PREPARE your PADDLE and PRACTICE!

See you in March 11th…..
