Wang:  Hey Bob, how are you doing this tournament?
 
Bob:  This is the worst I have ever played!  I haven’t touched a racket for two weeks then on my first match that long-pips guys messed up my stroke and now I don’t know what to do.

Wang:  Yeah, you aren’t on top of your game.
 
Bob:  My strokes are terrible, I’m just not looping the ball like I used to.
