about a year ago, I had no weapons in my inventory, just soft groundstrokes and a weak serve. As of now, I have much more powerful groundstrokes and a kick serve. But today I played a guy who i believe is worse then me (horrible form), and he's basically a pusher. I lost the match 5-7. I have a few reasos though. 1) There was a bunch of nerves. no idea why, i know his form is worse, but I still felt weird 2) I was missing a bunch of shots. My game plan was, okay, just go out there and smash some balls cause he wouldn't be able to handle it. I missed a bunch of shots I thought I could hit hard, and from then on, he was playing much more consistent then I was. Now I think i've finally realized, that although i've gained more power and better strokes/serve, I've lost something that I forgot I needed : consistency! Now, from here on out, I will practice being much more consistent! does anyone have any tips on 2 things : 1) how to be more consistent while keeping high paced shots 2) help on handling the mind and its nerves. the mental game of tennis. because honestly I play almost 3 times better at practice, but when I played my match I felt restricted.
