Maybe I need to see a sports psychologist's frustrating
One way I deal with pressure when I am playing for my hs team is I just try to play high % tennis. So in your situation maybe just spin your serve in and play loopy groundstrokes to put pressure on the other guy. Also it helps to focus on the ball and just swing.
