Earlier this year I switched from using a relatively flexible frame with Syn Gut strings to the Babolat APD with full poly and did a number on my arm and wrist. I immediately switched back but continued using a poly/gut hybrid (I really liked the poly). I've started doing a lot more exercises to strenthen my mucles and the pain has really come down quite a bit. Since it's not completely gone, I've decided to take the advice from so many on these boards to just take a break from tennis for a few months to let it heal. In the meantime, I'm planning to get myself much stronger, lighter, quicker, and prepared to make a strong (but slow) comeback. I don't want to completely give up all aspects of tennis, if possible so I was wondering if anyone knew of some good, elbow-approved drills I can do to improve my game. I'm already planning to do a lot of footwork drills since this is my number one weak spot right now. My number two weak spot is proper eye/hand coordination - specifically, keeping my eye on the ball through contact, which causes me to mishit shots. My plan was to retrofit a racquet with some sort of a pouch in the sweetspot area to practice "catching" the ball in the proper place (either with a ball machine or with a partner). There would be no swinging or hitting, just practicing to catch the ball on the proper spot. Good idea or bad idea? Any other advice you have would be helpful.
