I was so lost when they asked me about my coach. I hadn’t seen him for so long. He didn’t give me much coaching and it wasn’t long after I joined the team, he stopped going down.
No matter how biased or selfish he was, I didn’t want to disgrace him. I didn’t have good games, and my dropped skill disgusted myself.
Without fail, Mingfa consoled me that it was due to lack of practise, but I thought otherwise, because I had seen many experts retaining their skill after lost of contact with the ball. If they could do it, why couldn’t I?
It was pointless to give excuses like my shoes didn’t have enough friction, there were reflection of light on my spectacle, I had less than three hours of sleep the night before, or my legs were injured.
I should be experienced enough to overcome them.
