My Strategy V Elite Strategy

There are two ways to play squash; risk or not risk the possibly of securing "The T". 

 

Introduction

Now that there has been an independent examination of both My Strategy and The Elite Strategy from the Basic Zones, one should now be aware of the following: To secure The T "My" Strategy is only dependent on Reasonable Quality (Exception the straight drop from D3 or D4 which requires more than Reasonable Quality).

My Strategy scenarios: If the shot is of Superior Quality the player will always secure The T: If the shot is of more than Reasonable Quality the player should always secure The T: If the shot is of Reasonable Quality the player is expected to secure The T: If the shot is of less than Reasonable Quality the player may secure The T: If the shot is of Poor Quality the player is expected not to secure The T.

However, the Elite Strategy when endeavouring to attain The T is often dependent on Superior Quality or the opponent's lack of ability. Obviously, there is no need for a strategy if the player could hit the ball with Superior Quality or if the opponent lacks ability.

Before viewing the videos it is important to visit Main menu - T, Sub menu - T Area. This will give you an understanding of the correct T positioning.

 

My Strategy V Elite Strategy in the D1 and D2 Zones

Often the elite player employs "My" Defensive Strategy from the Defensive Zones.

Similarily, the elite player attacks from "My" Defensive Zones. It would appear that the player is unaware that the Zones are Defensive.


Often the elite player attacks from "My" Defensive Zones and risks the possibility of not securing The T


My Strategy V Elite Strategy in the D3 and D4 Zones

Often the elite player employs "My" Defensive Strategy from the Defensive Zones.


Often the elite player attacks from "My" Defensive Zones. It would appear that the player is unaware that the Zones are Defensive.

Often the elite player employs "My" Defensive Strategy from the Defensive Zones.

( A new term The Drob: The player attempts to play a tight drop or a deliberately loose drop and spoons up a high loose drop ).


Often the elite player attacks from "My" Defensive Zones and risks the possibility of not securing The T.

 My Strategy V Elite Strategy in the A1 Zone

Often the elite player employs "My" Strategy from the Attacking Zone, that is, the player attacks.

However, does the player recognise being in "My" Attacking Zone? 
Furthermore, does the player attack to attain The T?


It would seem that the elite player does not recognise being in "My" Attacking Zone.

   It Is now apparent that the elite player does not attack to attain The T, but often risks the possibility of not attaining The  T.   

   

   

My Strategy V Elite Strategy in the Defensive Zones and Attacking Zones

Defensive and Attacking Zones

Examples from all the Zones Part 1

Gohar is very dependant on superior quality to attain The T when she straight drives from the D3 Zone. Also, Serme risks being out of position when she cross court drives from the Attacking Zone.

Part 2 

Again, it is obvious that the player when driving the ball often risks not attaining The T. Also, the player when attacking may miss opportunities to work the opponent.

Part 3

What if Gaultier decides to defend with a high slow shot from the back Defensive Zone?

What if Farag decides to attack with a straight volley drop from the Attacking Zone?
