Okay, this is getting pretty frustrating lately. When I play against people my level or better than myself, I'm crazy, I'm bouncing everywhere, getting everything, my footwork's near perfect, and my game is ridiculously good most of the time. However, when I play someone I KNOW I can beat, it's like I adjust myself to their level. I end up getting so many easy shots out, when I try to get into good form and everything (bouncing, reminding myself not to be lazy even though they're not as good players, etc), I just can't find myself. It's like I'm only half there on the courts, and the other part of me is somewhere else (the part with all the skill of course). I've come up with a few possible explanations, 1. I don't try as hard because I don't feel the need. 2. It's something to do with me not being able to take higher, slower shots properly and turn them into controlled aggression. Maybe I should ask my coach to half-lob a few shots to me and see if I can deal with them properly? This happens over and over again, even against different people. I'll be amazing against someone good, and then I'll suck against a sub-par player. Does this happen to anyone else? Any advice?
