    Hey guys, I have a problem. Okay, so I'm a 4.0 player. My overall game was improving more and more as I play. Then I had ripped a tendon (I jumped over a fence and failed, lol :???: ) and came back today. It was my first practice in a week and I'M FRICKING LIKE A WHOLE NEW PLAYER. MY SERVE SUCKED, MY GROUND STROKES, MY FOOTWORK. My volleys were decent. Well this happens when i spend some time off tennis. Do you guys know why this happens? any tips? Oh i think i should mention this, my game is slightly modeled after nadal's forehand.. djoko's backhand, and federer's movement (So i need good timing for my strokes). I'm also only 14. My doctor said that during puberty, uncoordination will occur.

    Psssstt... Try putting this in the health & fitness section. A 14 year old 4.0 player huh. Anywho, first practice in a week? So you didnt play for 1 week because of a torn tendon? Dude i think you need wayy more time to rest than just that. Muscle memory doesnt go away in a week but i guess everyone is different. I'm feeling as if your one of those people that warms up by hitting balls hard. Instead, try focusing on hitting the ball in with the right technique. Taking it easy. Stretching before and after practice. With a forehand like nadal, i assume your shanking the ball for your forehands, no timing with the backhand, and your waiting for the ball to come to you. Like i said before, make sure your focusing on technique. Even if it means dinking the ball over.
    At home practice : Shadow swing in an open area.

    Once there was this kid who
    Got into an accident and couldn't come to school
    But when he finally came back
    His hair had turned from black into bright white
    He said that it was from when
    The car had smashed so hard

    Lyrics from a modest hit from maybe two-and-a-half decades ago. Trying to remember the name of the band, but the singer was one of the most "horse mouthed" dudes I've probably ever seen.

    Actually a pretty funny post, considering the context... Well played, r2473!
