I’ve im­proved my pitch­ing in the last cou­ple of years with what I like to de­scribe as a more ‘child­like’ ap­proach. For a long pe­riod of time I was a bit too sys­tem­atic – us­ing a clock­face sys­tem to hit the ball cer­tain dis­tances and per­haps be­ing too aware of po­si­tions in my ac­tion. I’ve al­ways been very tech­ni­cal be­cause I wanted to have a tech­nique to rely on but I’ve re­ally ben­e­fited from tran­si­tion­ing back to be­ing more nat­u­ral in my ap­proach. Now, I vi­su­alise the shot in de­tail – how it will come off the face, the tra­jec­tory, and the bounce and re­lease when it lands – and trust that I can ex­e­cute it. This has also made me much more cre­ative.
