Try to yank the ball backwards, its modern. No sorry. But I find it helps to have very few things to focus on, right from the warm up. For me it is watching the ball (especially after bounce, or all the way to the strings if you will), get a good contact (which for me is a solid thud, hitting through the ball, feeling you are really gripping the ball, it is a feeling you recognize). And then I like to hit slow during warm up, lifting the ball over the net, to get a good relaxed timing. You can always add power when you start yanking it more, he...
A major problem is to get that seemless transition from warmup pace to rally pace, I would say.
