  • Around age 30, players decrease the physical and technical skills, although experience gained over the years, makes them good on pressure situations. Also they have great mental clarity.
  • At age 34, the players fold.
  • Matches provoke tiredness to players.They need to have breaks in order to reduce tiredness.
