you shouldnt fix strokes during tournament play, you should work tactics during tournaments and technique during preparation

...the biggest single thing you can do to help yourself in your tournament is to keep your feet moving. Most people think tennis is an arm sport; it's not, it's a leg sport. It makes absolutely no difference how well you can hit a forehand if you can't get there in time to line up the shot...realizing, of course that playing a tournament match is vastly different than rallying with a hitting partner. Your hitting partner is trying to feed you so you can groove your strokes; your opponent in a tournament match is trying to do everything so that you won't get grooved.

If I were most people's coach, I'd take their rackets away from them for two months and make them do nothing but speed, quickness, agility, and flexibility drills. Tournaments especially have this way of making the feet shut down. Keep your feet moving and you'll be just fine...
