Every time I think I have it figured out, I injure myself in the heat of battle.
My TE can get bad when I'm stretched out on my forehand and I go for a Rafa style spin swing over my head. I tend to squeeze the handle very tight when I try this shot and that is where it gets me. Need to just start slicing those balls.
