I know, some of you are sick of reading these types of posts, but this may be a little different and as such perhaps those of you whom have experienced the problems I have will comment on how they overcame their issues. I’m a 54 yom in very good shape. I’ve played off and on since my mid-twenties but only in the last four years have I played regularly…..3-4 times per week. I’ve been told that I play at an upper 3.5 level. I’m right handed with a semi-western forehand grip. I have a one handed backhand. I have always seemed to struggle with anything hit to my forehand side, volley’s included. It is just not a natural swing for me whereas the backhand is. Last year I decided I was going to fix that and so I purchased a ball machine and took some lessons. Over that year, it greatly improved where I finally felt confident in hitting to that side. Indeed, my forehand was good and reliable. Not great, mind you, but pretty good. With all the work I put into the forehand, I felt that I had neglected my backhand and thus decided to work on the backhand, fine tuning it a bit. I took a few lessons and it improved quickly and beyond the level of performance I had prior to addressing my forehand issues. Now my forehand has regressed…. no power, most balls into the net, just like before……very frustrating to me. It is as if I just cannot get a good balance between my forehand and backhand swing. When one is good, the other is not so good but the forehand is horrible when my backhand is at its best. I’ve noted this in the past too. There seems to be some kind of conflict with me in maintaining muscle memory between these two different swings. Anyone else have/had a similar issue? Thanks to those who might kindly address my posting.
