Anyone else have this problem and what are the possible ways of of preventing and/or fixing this?
For me when I hit too far out front I hit too flat. The stroke is actually quite powerfull, but lacks sufficient spin to stay in usually. I tell my self to wait, just let the ball come to me. Even when someone is pounding it at you, as long as you're split stepping when then hit you usually have plenty of time to set up. I also try to focus on the desired contact point and keep my eyes on it when I swing.
