Winning Deuce Games!

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.  You have won 10 points during the game and you must have a clear memory as to which serves won the point outright and which serves setup your game best.  You also must have a clear memory about which locations worked best and what game patters worked best.
