why is it that the last point (when you are at 14-x) the hardest to get? i was playing singles the other day against someone who's worse than me (well, he challenged me). he wasn't that bad a player, and i am not a singles player either. but i managed to find his weakness which was he consistency at the backcourt, so i played mostly fast clears to his back. eventually, he will return a weak shot and i was quickly winning around 14-3 or so... the then block comes in. brain goes blank and i found myself playing differently. tactic changed and i started droping and smashing which is not really my game. then sooner or later, the score was 14-8. this also happens with pros. having seen so many pro games where the leader sees a big 14-x lead getting eroded slowly, always failing to get the last point. is it because we tend to relax at 14? thinking that the end is near? why is it that we tend to do that instead of just finishing the game off quickly? anybody got similar experience?
