Last night, I was asked to hit and play points against a 10 year old boy who plays modern tennis. His dad is a coach, but not a modern one. I encounter this problem whenever I play juniors after having played old guys for weeks. It is the topspin to my forehand. After 5 minutes, I get the timing right on my 1 handed backhand and neutralize or counter topspin the ball (I don't want to slice). On the forehand, which should be easier, I have problems with the ball flight and spin. I am able to track the ball and find it, but my racquet contact is not satisfactory. Though the ball goes across, it does not have the depth I want and I feel that my racquet has the wrong angle at impact and I am being caught half-prepared every time. I also feel blinded during the last moments by the trajectory of the ball. It gets better with time, but at the next session, the problems come back.
