Are you in a situation where the ball is in your court now? Has someone left something up to you and now you need to make the next move? Or is someone playing head games with you right now?
This could also mean you are in a situation that is competitive and you need to win. Team work may be what will work for you right now.
If the ball seems to be more of a focus than the court or the game, then your dream may be reassuring you that you are going to bounce right back from a difficult situation. If the ball is flat or won’t bounce, this could be a sign of low energy or lack of motivation. Time to find a way to re-energize and get back in the game.
