I suspected this a while back, but now I'm convinced. A few months back, I developed some pain at the top of my forearm. I suspected some sort of itis in my elbow or forearm, if not tennis elbow. I began to wear a brace on my arm that seemed to work. The pain didn't get worse and I was able to keep playing as much as usual. However, my game fell off a bit. Everything from serving to ground strokes seemed to suffer. I was hitting a lot of unforced errors. So I took the brace off and my game seemed to improve a bit, but so did the pain in my arm after a week or two. My friends didn't seem to think there was any relationship, that it was in my head, because they wore braces and didn't have any problem. So, I put the brace back on to fend off the pain, and I've continued to struggle in my play. So yesterday, I forgot to bring the brace to my singles match. And in fact, didn't notice that it was missing until after the match, which I won, easily. My unforced errors dropped, my serving was very good, and this was a guy that beat me in straight sets last week. Anyone else noticed that a Tennis Elbow Brace affects their game?
