Last weekend, a couple of my students made big mistakes at the Newgy Cincinnati Open. I asked Hesam about his strategy against Tapabrata Dey in the open quarterfinals. He responded with, "Oh, I think that it will be easy. I won easily last time and even Ali has beaten him twice." Without thinking strategy, he went out and lost 3-0. Tapabrata had been thinking strategy and played excellent the entire match. Hesam was shocked and couldn't perform at his best.
