An example of thinking beyond the point is when your controlling a point and you either run your opponent around for several shots, or you make an error after a couple of shots because of impatience. If you can make 6 to 8 hard shots to the corner, it’s going to send a message to your opponent that they are going to have to work extremely hard to win the match regardless if you win that point or not. If you make an error early in the point you calm your opponent, letting them think that they just need to make a couple of shots and you’ll brake down. So, when you are controlling a point don’t be in a hurry to end it as you will be breaking down your opponent both physically and mentally.
