Other times, I'll be hitting and it'll feel like I'm using a block of wood and it makes it hard to generate pace and build up consistency. Assuming the strings aren't dead, what can attribute to the differences in response from the stringbed. Sometimes I'll feel like I'm playing at a 6.0 level and flash forward a few more days and it'll be very low quality tennis, because of the response of my racket.
That used to happen to me A LOT. In my case, I finally realized that in the days I was hitting poorly I was squeezing the handle to hard, which impaired me from hitting a relaxed shot. Next time you try to hit the ball hard and you see a wimpy shot, be sure that your arm is tense. After I corrected this, it never happened again.
