I think the most important thing is to understand what went wrong on bad days. That's how I found out that not only does a drop in my blood sugar levels (hereditary problem) affect everything but also a drop in my electrolyte levels affects my reflexes, timing and coordination, too.

So now I try to drink sports drinks with glucose on odd game. Hange-overs, but I also make sure to eat a meal with lots of complex carbohydrates 2 hours before I play.

I still have bad days but now it's because I play stupid without realising it, e.g. hitting a 3/4 court forehand and then running to the net AND mot doing a split step to prepare for the return either.
