Learn the keys to making or breaking your next tournament
There are several keys that you must remember when playing deuce games.
#1 The first key to remember is… what you did right.

If you want to do well on the final exam, you need to take the quizzes to test yourself. If you are failing every quiz, then you need to learn the content better. If you aren’t performing well in practice matches, then you need to go back to the practice hall and work on specifics.
