    Re: By the time you come to know that you opponent is behind you.

    You've written two sentence fragments.

    Look closely at the pronoun before opponent.​ Do you see a mistake?

    It could be made into one sentence.

    Re: By the time you come to know that you opponent is behind you.

    Now add a comma (where you previously had a full stop).
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: By the time you come to know that you opponent is behind you.

    The punctuation and construction is now correct. The only change I would now make would be to change "come to know" to "realise".
