FAST FACTS

Kick Off - - HOW TO OVERCOME POOR FORM -

1Tiger Woods, the leg­endary US golfer, wouldn't leave prac­tice un­til he had sunk 100 6 foot putts in a row. If he missed his 100th at­tempt, he'd start over. By cre­at­ing pres­sure dur­ing train­ing he could re­main com­posed in big events. 2Diego For­lan, Uruguay's sec­ond most capped player of all time and Bafana Bafana's tor­menter in chief dur­ing the 2010 World Cup, once went 26 games with­out a goal for Manch­ester United. 3In­dia's Sachin Ten­dulkar, the high­est Test run scorer of all time, once scored 214 against Aus­tralia with­out playing a cover drive (one of the most com­mon shots for a bats­man) be­cause he had de­vel­oped a weak­ness in it. This would be akin to a striker cut­ting out shoot­ing with his laces. Some­times, avoid­ing prob­lem ar­eas in your game is the way to go.
