What is your edge? Just like professional athletes, us traders need to know what our strengths are and play towards these. Rafaal Nadal has a wicked forehand and Rodger Federer one of the best backhands in the history of tennis. They work each game towards their strength and go for the winning shot when the set-up is right. They don’t continuously try and attempt low probability shots early in a rally just to win a quick point nor do they go for extravagant strokes that lead to unforced errors. These are characteristics of players outside the top 10 in the world and why these two players have been ranked number one.
