It is important to always keep a positive attitude even when you are losing. In my short table tennis career, I have seen many players beat themselves as they gave up when losing or beat themselves up after playing a poor point. Everybody makes mistakes in their strategy and/or technique during matches, even the most elite players in the world. I have made comments to younger players that were losing to stay positive and heard back “Positive? This guy is killing me! I have no chance.” I often say to myself, “This isn’t over yet. I can do it.”
