I've been training for a while now. The past two weeks I've been doing nothing but playing matches with a friend ranked high up in varsity singles. I love pace, but I need to improve on my consistency. My friend said today was the best tennis I've ever played before I hit with about 75% power and focused on consistency, as opposed to 100% balls-to-the-wall death strokes. I make unforced errors during long rallies when I lose focus. Rallies are my "moment", and if any non-"moment" thoughts come into my head, I lose. So I need to work on my concentration. I still get frustrated when I play pushers. I've played quite a few of those as well. I won some and lost some. I realized that the biggest key to winning against them is the serve. When I drop bombs, they're never returned. This frustrated the pusher and I just have to help him self-destruct by being consistent and making them lose through unforced errors. Another thing I learned: Strings. Between points I stare at my strings, analyze and observe them. Touch them. It relieves stress and maintains focus on what matters. Sounds crazy but it works... Any other tips you guys have? This will be the first year I'm trying out (I'm a senior). Lots of varsity peeps say I'll make it high up, but I often don't believe I can win. Therefore I lose. But lately I've really been believing and it's done wonders for my game.
