I play in a NJ women's indoor doubles league. Highly competitive, 32 week season, matches are 1x a week. There are 4 levels and I just got drafted to the top league. I am a former college player and I rose to the top fairly quickly, in about half the normal time. Seems that now that I am on this upper division, I just can't win. Some of it is just gelling with new partners, trying to find a good fit. But there is now the element of getting myself psyched out. Last week when I was to serve for the first time in the match, I got a case of the yips. Strokes weren't flowing, and I almost had a sensation of not feeling gravity. :shock: Same thing happened yesterday at a USTA mixed match. Crazy, huh? So I know it is all in my mind, but I wonder what the rest of you have done if you have ever been in this situation. Usually the night before every match, I play a couple games in my head -- feeling what a great serve feels like, hearing the sound of the racket as I make a passing shot, etc. Putting myself in a frame of mind that I have already won. Next match I want to be prepared to combat this lack of self-confidence if it raises it's ugly head. Any suggestions?
