if the opponent is better than u that day and all the strategies in ur tool chest is not working out, learn from it for the next match.
Mostly balls going out, but a few going into the net, particularly when starting a warm up rally. Nothing more irritating than hitting two into the net consecutively.
Specifically, it comes down to not contacting the call well. I can hear the difference in sound when I contact the ball well and when I contact badly, yesterday there was a lot of the latter, resulting in balls going out and miss-hits. When I tried to slow the pace it felt forced and unnatural.
It also felt like the shots were over very quickly.

As I'm not contacting the ball properly I'd hazard a guess that I'm not swinging well. Any specific tips to help?
