Use your TIMEOUTS effectively

franheadshot_150All amateur matches are two out of three games; the first two games are to 15 and the tiebreaker to 11. You receive three 30-second time-outs in a 15-point game and two 30-second time-outs in a tiebreaker. The pros play three out of five to 11 and receive only a singe one-minute timeout in a game. There is more than one reason to take a time-out.
