I had come back from a two week break from tennis, and as usual had to spend a day getting back into the swing of things, but it was going really bad. For some reason my normally flatish shots had much more topspin than normal on them, which I had a hard time controlling. Now I realize it was because I was inadvertantly doing the thing where you point the butcap at the ball. The only problem I have is that it is inconsistent and that sometimes my wrist feels kind of weak and loose when I make contact. Any tips for improving my shot?

I think we could pick apart your form and make a million suggestions, but, actually, if you were hitting fine before, I think, within a few days, you will be back to normal.

Recently, I too a 10 day vacation. When I got back I felt all out of wack on the court. In my case, I think it was footwork and watching the ball. The next day out I hit much better. I think you will too.

Good luck,

B

Thanks for the advice B, I guess I will just go out and hit some more until I am back to normal.

I have been back and hitting for a while now, there is one thing that I could use a little advice on. When I get low balls and bend to get down to hit them sometimes it feels like my raquet is floppy on contact... its hard to describe. This sometimes happens on higher balls too. How could I stop this/what is the cause of this? I don't think that it is an overly loose wrist though. If you guys need more description or anything let me know.

Could be from not hitting the ball in the center of the strings. Do you have any videos of yourself hitting?
