    I think I've finally cracked my problem with inconsistant shots. I watched some videos online of pros frame by frame and their head just staying in the exact same position through the stroke even into the follow through. Fed is amazing at this.

    I tried it today and it really helped. I did feel like the guy hitting to me was about to hit me in the side of the head doing it though!

    Some pros in pics seem to be looking very slightly ahead of the ball meeting the racquet though.

    eye of the tiger.....

    no joke.

    I remember seeing some footage of a tiger charging it's prey and regardless of it's body movement, it's head and eyes remained remakably still.

    Focus on your target (the ball), stay on balance, and attack the ball. Takes a lot of error out of the equation.

    Hard to do it every time, but it sure helps.
