Happens all the time. The trick is to learn strokes in a stress free environment, but to then practice and perfect them with the same stress as a match. Play to 21 on drills. It is often enough to just say "match point" before sending off the ball. Of course, there is a need for practice, but soon after practicing something you should put what you were working on to the real test and try it out in a set.
