Its a crappy thing to admit but its the truth. My #1 weakness is all in my head. I'm not a stupid person but for some reason when I get on the court sometimes I just lose focus or sabotage myself. How do you correct stuff like this? I really sucked tonight. I kind of feel like I need to find some batteries and power up my label maker and tape some reminders on the side beam of me racquet. I'm really a headcase. I know how I am capable of playing and I realize that a lot of people have an idealized view of themself when they think of what they could be capable of but lately I'm not even 50% of that image. I'm picturing stuff going out before I make contact. Not good. Any advice? My first league match ever is on Thursday night. I feel like nobody can beat me at this level unless I screw myself up. Problem is, I have been screwing myself up lately. Sunday I just could not serve well. Lately that hasn't been a problem for me so after I went to the park and hit over 220 serves (55 in the hopper x 4 full hoppers + a few balls that I picked up that went into the net each time) and I served well. Probably above 80% (which may have been partially due to a low net at the park, if it was indeed low but the majority had enough topspin to clear any net height). Then tonight I double faulted like 6 times in match play in lessons. I also hit a bunch of serves that could not be returned by my classmates or instructor (at least it wasn't all bad... no aces though because I am spinning everything it and not hitting flat to protect my shoulder). A lot of it is in my head. So how do I fix it?
